Test Ship Insigia
Updated SD 2262.226


Introduction

These insignia were created as an attempt to blend some of the elements we loved about The Original Series (TOS)- namely, an individualized symbol representing each ship (something that has been carried over into the PRIME universe with their shoulder flashing patches)- and the 2009 Star Trek movie.

Design Specifics

Firstly, though many of these insignia were inspired by like designs found on the internet, they are all wholly new images. Furthermore, most have incorporated several changes from the inspirational sources. As such, though it is possible to find insignia that look to greater or lesser degrees like those below, most have evolved into something more.

The insignia were created as metal pins, in order to mimic those worn by Enterprise crew in Star Trek. Also, they incorporate a silver foreground with a thick black border- again, mostly to recall those from Star Trek. However, the addition of the gold backgrounds and other design elements was made to give an additional layer of depth to the insignia, possibly signifying an "upgrade" over the plain, single-metal colors of Star Trek.

The final versions will incorporate a "brushed" metal surface and "punched" (downward embossed) division devices on each insignia to complete the metallic effect.

Starship Insignia

Insignia Assigned based on Canonical Evidence

These starships, because of canonical evidence, already have established devices representing the ships.
