    (Actually, I work in a graphics/publications department, so proofreading is sort of kneejerk. I know it annoys some people, but I can't help it.)

    Go ahead, caller. I'm listening...
    Hint: Put an editorial mistake in every update, and you'll always know if Forbin is paying attention. ;)

    Also, that pic of Dukat as Kirk in the big chair is almost like Trek blasphemy or something. O.o

    Yeah, a few people on the cardassian sites said the same thing about cardassians in federation uniforms

    5 new logos added.

    They are reworked versions of the wall symbols seen in ds9 that are scattered throughout the station.
    My source were images for sale on the site your props and used them as a reference.

    Love all the different logos and designs. Can't decide if the red one or the blue one is my favorite ;)

    Thanks fireproof.

    Surprisingly you would think there would be more stuff available on the signs, props , symbols etc use in trek and its movies and show, with the amount of global interest in trek stuff that people could use as a reference point.

    I don't know what the triangle one is but it looks cool.

    Perhaps St. Patrick traveled to Cardassia to explain the Trinity? ;)

    - It looks familiar, but I can't place it either. I've just had a flick through the ST Encyclopedia but can only find Cardassian junction labels which are the other way up.
    The golden-bronze circle with the Cardassian "web" is lovely. It reminds me of a polished up old coin. Or the Cardassian version of an antikythera device.

    I remember reading on a cardassian site a while back how the triangular shape was predominant in cardassian stuff ( I dont know if that was true or not) so when I made the detapa council logo I used multiple triangles to come up with a design.

    So I repeated it for the latest triangular logo, which does look like the markings seen around the ds9 station.
