This shirt was my first Star Trek related shirt as an adult.
In previous blog entries, I have shared about my affection for logos. And one of my favorite logos is this one for Star Trek's United Federation of Planets, the United Nations of the future, and the overseer of organizations like Star Fleet.
Isn't this a beautiful logo? I have a book published in the late 1970s with this logo on the cover. I think it is the perfect logo for the UFP, even if it is strongly derivative of the United Nations logo.
This shirt was also a gift from my parents, and I am very fond of the shirts I have received as gifts. I have another gift shirt scheduled for tomorrow (which recently came in the mail), and I will fill in more text on the sentimentality and importance of gifts in my life in future blog entries.
This entry is very brief today because I have been buried with a huge homework project, which put me behind with the jobs I do for actual money.
Mainly, I just want to dangle a teaser for the upcoming Star Trek film, which is due on May 17th. There was also a delicious clip in the IMAX feature of the Hobbit for those who managed to spy it there. Our beloved crew (and especially Mr. Spock) are in for quite the ordeal.
Though this movie clip really does not feature the United Federation of Planets in any way, it really fuels extremely well the overall excitement I have for the upcoming JJ Abrams film Into Darkness. I am certain that I am not alone in watching the clips that are released on the Internet with an increased salivation factor and eager anticipation.
While I wait for the film's release, I will be wearing this and other Star Trek shirts with pride.
This one was the first.
If I am going to advertise something, and I am going to advertise something all the time, then it's logos.
It's all about the logos.
