Trump unveils new Space Force logo – but Star Trek fans mock it

The new US Space Force logo is gaining traction on social media for bearing a striking similarity to Star Trek’s Starfleet Command logo.

President Donald Trump unveiled the Space Force logo on Friday and said on Twitter he had consulted with military leaders and designers before presenting the blue-and-white symbol.

Featuring an arrowhead shape centred on a planetary background, the symbol is encircled by the words “United States Space Force” and “Department of the Air Force”.

Ahem. We are expecting some royalties from this…

It also bears the date 2019 in Roman numerals, which is similar in design to that of Air Force Space Command, from which Space Force was created by legislation signed by Mr Trump in December.

“After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military!”, Mr Trump tweeted.
