My memory isn't what it used to be...I guess when your birthday candles set off the smoke detectors, that's to be expected. Laughing That said, I seem to remember 'way back when the ISC first came into SFB, their insignia was a square, circle, and four-pointed star. Is that still out there somewhere, or has memory failed me, and the 'domino panels' were all they ever had?

Speaking of those...is there an actual pattern for the white and black squares, or is it random?

Last (and possibly least), is there an 'official' color scheme? I know that pale blue seems to be common, thanks to the PC game, but is that the 'real' color?

Thanks.

The painting info can be found here

http://www.starfleetgames.com/miniatures.shtml#guide

The ISC info is towards the bottom of the page on the right side

The insignia are explained on page 33 of SFB module C2. The different blocks represent ship class; whether it was a leader, carried fighters, etc; and the hull number.

The same background identifies that no national insignia or ship names were displayed.

Originally, yes. However, you are more likely to see something random or cutsie (e.g. Tug and LTT ship cards) as you are to see those original definitions from C2.

Talking of cutesy, if you haven't seen the Carnivron painting guide, have a look!

I asked about that old "star" logo over on the BBS; at this point, it is not considered an official part of the SFU.
