Re: Photo request -- Enterprise hangar deck studio miniature

Thanks... But I'm still having serious difficulty telling the fonts apart. To me, the thicknesses look identical, and the seeming roundedness of the CGI version appears to me a mere matter of "softness" of focus - the upper corners of the CGI "C" look rounded (that is, with very short 45 degree segments) from this angle, but the lower ones are still sharp / with long segments.

Then again, I've never understood the font thing. I'm just not the sort of person capable of fathoming why a typeface with short serifs should cost hundreds of dollars while one with long ones is free, so I guess I tend to actively avoid seeing any uniqueness or merit to specific fonts...

(And yeah, Mike Trice rules! As do certain other sources linked to good old IDIC Page.)
