I would have at least liked to have seen that secretary's emblem turned into a flower for TOS-R. Perhaps it would have been too expensive an operation for convincingly "repairing" just a few seconds of footage, even in 2006, assuming the production staff even noticed it.
I'm happy they didn't mess with Mendez' secretary
. Would you also recommend they should have changed the deltas / arrowheads on the uniforms of Kirk's "friends"
in "Court Martial"?
Mendez' secretary could have just been in charge of starship-only affairs, hence the delta / arrowhead.
Where the Bob Justman memo (thanks GSchnitzer
) continues to confuse me is this: If we assume that he wanted to state that all "starship captains" in a perfect world wear the delta, he still owes us the answer why commodores in charge of starships (at least and most definitely Matt Decker) were entitled to wear a different insignia.
Does this mean that once a captain is promoted to the rank of commodore he can pick his personal choice of insignia for himself (and perhaps for his crew?).
If the insignia selection process qualifies as a reward, I see no problem why Starfleet shouldn't honor the accomplishments of a certain starship by adopting its insignia as the general one for Starfleet (i.e. "The Cage / Menagerie" Orion scene - April's Enterprise
/ "Court-Martial" & "The Menagerie" - Pike's Enterprise
/ "Court-Martial" etc. - Wesley's Lexington ).
