Re: Flags of Mystery

I seem to recall someone claiming to have read that Bill Theiss made the flags by literally stapling cloth together. It was a quick and dirty job. Maybe this was only the light blue flag and the other was the Cuban flag. Sure looks the part. For my money, I assume the blue flag had the Enterprise delta on it. Though it may well have been the SF Command boomerang. In my personal Star Trek Universe, each ship is part of a larger fleet that is a subdivision of the Starfleet over all. The arrowhead was the symbol for the not just the Enterprise, but the whole sub-fleet. ("Court Martial" would seem to back this up since everyone on the Star Base (except, notably, the actual Starbase staff) wore the same arrowhead as Enterprise even though they were not Enterprise crew.)
