Now now, before anyone shits their collective pants, I have some things to explain.

First off, since the website is in my name, I do not want to be issues a lawsuit or a cease and desist about us using an official Trek logo, so I hired an artist I have slept with in the past to make one.

It is now live.

We can own this and place it on anything, shirts, watches, mousepads, asstatts, all of it.

And since we own the image, we significantly lower our risk of being sued by paramount or cbs since USTLF isn't a thing they own.

~_~ and I think it looks purrrdy icons-d icon1710dalt

I agree with the need for our own logo, and I approve of the chosen selection.

Nice troll, but you know I'm not an artist. I can neither confirm nor deny that the other part is true...

I do however have one suggestion for the logo. Maybe it could be a slightly lighter shade of blue, something more like TNG title blue:

This was considered, however the color layout of the board is aligned with the current color of the logo, so its not going to be changed.

However we will be able to change the logo to a myriad of colors when printing it on shirts, watches, mouse pads, neckties, cellphone cases, Kindle slip cases, and such and such.

I think the slightly lighter shade would definitely make our logo 'pop', since at the moment is does get kind of engulfed by the black background since it is such a dark shade of blue. Why not try it and see how it looks? You might be surprised.

Allow me to reply with a modified quote from one of my favorite TNG episodes, Yesterdays Enterprise:

Vern RIKER
But that's what you're talking
about doing anyway, isn't it?
Altering the logo.

Surlaw PICARD
We're talking about restoring the
logo.

Moses GEORDI
How could the artist know that logo
has been altered... if they've been
altered along with the rest of
us?

Ilithi DATA
Perhaps some artists have a
perception that goes beyond linear
time.

Surlaw PICARD
(acknowledges)
There are many things about artists
that cannot be easily
explained. Even they cannot
explain how or why they sence that
the logo has been altered. And yet
it is very possible they are correct.
But I, for one,
have decided the consequences of
that possibility are too grave to
ignore.

Vern RIKER
Sir, if you wish my opinion...


Surlaw PICARD
I think I know your opinion,
Commander. This is a briefing.
I'm not seeking your consent.
Riker refusing to back off, challenging Picard --

Vern RIKER
With all due respect, Captain,
we'd be asking one hundred and
twenty-five pixels to die a
meaningless death.


Surlaw PICARD
Even their deaths... might have
prevented the war. ...and
a new future will have been
created.
I've weighed the alternatives.
I will follow Artists's
recommendations.
Dismissed.

So when is the logo changing over the TNG blue? We've been waiting an entire year for this now. :lol:

as soon as you pay and commission an artist to re-do it in the proper color.

Yeah, doesn't work that way. I don't own the original files, the artist does, pretty sure I didn't include a clause that we can just monkey around with the coloration on some work someone else did.
