With all that has been going on, I forgot to mention here that SVC created a new play aid of pilot's wings insignia. See it here at: http://www.starfleetgames.com/documents/Pilot_Wings.pdf

Why do the Klingons, lyrans, Seltorians, Vudar all have basically the same Badge, with just a few modifications?

The Vudar were a subject race of the Klingons before they gain their independence - so they probably based their emblem on what they were familiar with.
The Lyrans are almost a client state of the Klingon - ibid.
The Seltorians allied with the Klingons to help eradicate the Tholians - ibid.

...and the Seltorians had never even heard of fighters until the Klingons showed them. Seltorians flew Klingon fighters and we're initially trained by the Klingons, so their fighter culture would also be steeped in Klingon traditions.

The Seltorians also use Klingon fighter designs since fighters were unknown in the M81 Home Galaxy. So it makes sense that the Seltorians would adopt more of the Klingon traditions as well.

Edit: Whoops, Will beat me to it!

When it comes to the Vudar, if you go by the so-called 'low Vudar' option, they never really were all that independent, after all - more like an SAR of the Empire, perhaps, despite the convenient (when dealing with the Hydrans and ISC, at least) fiction of independence.


I wonder if that Gorn symbol is incorporating some kind of emblem from Skoleos, given the Skolean service as the Confederation Navy's attack craft pilots?


Also, I suppose it's not a question that could be answered just yet, but I wonder if FRA pilots' wings look like those used by Star Fleet, but perhaps with an Auroran star in place of the Star Fleet arrowhead.

(Well, the Aurorans developed their carriers and fighters independently - before Star Fleet did, in the event - so probably ended up with their own design anyway. But still, there may be an unwitting coincidence, or something.)


Oh, and what about Jindarian wings - if their fighter and bomber pilots use any, that is?

well I guess that explains it. The lyrans had to use klink fighters, so I get it now.

Never mind those others, the Orion emblem is very cool! Cool Cool Cool Cool

Guys, I'm talking about Prime Directive (in all of its incarnations) on our page on Facebook this week. Feel free to chime in, to bring your memories, to ask questions there!

Our page is here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Amarillo-Design-Bureau-Inc/231728653279?ref=mf

I hope you will get to see some interesting things there.
