Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares
^^^ I would agree. Maybe center the dot between "CAFE" and "BAR". IMHO, it would make it seem more balanced with the ampersand between "BAR" and "GRILL". I would guess that the dot in that picture is a drawn object - though I could be wrong about that. Many font sets out there have a dot as one of their included characters and could be placed in the string, perfectly aligned along the curved path so that you wouldn't have to eyeball its position relative to the text. Just a suggestion...

I may appear unoccupied to you, but at the molecular level, I'm really quite busy.
