China's National Space Program Copies Star Trek Logo

To give them full credit, I shouldn't say that China's National Space Administration ripped off a Star Trek logo. They actually ripped off two Star Trek logos.

The first logo being the somewhat more obscure United Federation of Planets crest, with the olive branches coming around both sides. The second one of course is that doohickey communicator thingy that goes on your chest. 

Like seriously, the CNSA should be thankful that graphic design is not an essential part of space travel. If it was, you'd be in some serious space-trouble!

doohickey

That "doohickey communicator thingy" is known as the 'Starfleet Delta', and has been around since the original series, long before the communicators were miniaturized and the design incorporated into the resulting comm badges.

There are several explanations for what it may or may not represent, though nothing specifically attributed as being the 'official' explanation for it.

Romulans

I can't wait to see their design for onboard spacewear. It will look like the Star Trek wardrobe I hope - with the short skirts for the ladies and the one-piece tight-fitting Captain Kirk pullovers.

Who's Copying Who?

And the UFP crest is a rip-off of the UN crest while it could be said that the delta is a rip-off of the Delta Airlines logo. The world does not begin and end with Star Trek.

FAIL

I remember reading an interview on sci-pop a while back that they based their design on the UN logo with a rocket in the middle.
