I recall reading somewhere that the multiple colors of the Romulan Kestrel symbol (the hawk looking thing that is primarily orange with other colored accents) mean something like what fleet the ship is in or what squadron or something.

Am I going crazy, or can someone confirm this? If so, are the colors assigned anywhere, like Fleet of the West, Home Fleet etc.?

Thanks.

I know the old painting guide said the birds had heraldic meaning, but I don't recall anything specific about colors. My mind is like a sieve though.

The great thing about memory loss is that you're always meeting new people! Very Happy

We have never published any data about the belly birds except they are "thought to be heraldic". No mention of any link to fleets.

Thanks for the info SVC.

Guess I'm going crazy then. Smile I suppose there are worse things to go crazy about though...

I'll have to dig out my old FASA Star Trek RPG books, but I think that may be the source you're thinking about.

When you wrote belly bird, I got this picture of a talking disney bird with a massive beer gut. Laughing

Hod K'el, your universal translator appears to be malfunctioning. [I didn't understand your last two posts.]

Please stop, I hate both Bees and Birds! Ack!

(If you want to know why I don't like birds, lets just say it wasn't raining...)

Well Pinecone, in the UK we always say that your experience means good luck. Admittedly, it's good luck for everyone that didn't receive the "package", but at least you can think there's a silver lining!! Very Happy
