New Space Force logo nearly identical to Starfleet Command logo

President Trump's new Space Force logo is seemingly beamed up straight from the Enterprise.

The president revealed the official logo for the Space Force in a tweet on Friday, and people were quick to point out its striking resemblance to the iconic logo for Starfleet, the space force for the United Federation of Planets in the "Star Trek" universe.

"After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military!" Trump tweeted, along with a photo of the new design.

The design has what appears to be Starfleet's delta spaceship symbol at its center, surrounded by the familiar blue globe, white stars and swooshed rings.

The Space Force, the sixth and newest branch of the armed forces created to handle threats in space, was made official last month when Congress passed a $738 billion military bill.
Mr. Trump has pushed for its creation throughout his presidency.

Former "Star Trek" cast member George Takei was quick to respond to the controversial logo.
"Ahem. We are expecting some royalties from this," he tweeted Friday afternoon.
CBS, which owns the logo, did not immediately comment.

John Noonan, a former national security adviser and former member of the Air Force, pointed out that the Space Force logo is likely based on a long-standing Air Force Command logo.
