OK, I’m OUT. I had enough.
Today I read a post on facebook from Karen Schnaubelt daughter of Franz Joseph creator of the Starfleet Technical Manual. In 1976 Star Trek was very popular in Syndication. The was talk of Star trek Phase II. This fan manual was extremely popular and is looked at by many fans to be a sort of Bible. Here is Her post:
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY just largely plagiarized a Franz Joseph Designs-copyrighted graphic at 15:39 into Season 1, Episode 4. (FJD logo on the left; screen cap from the ST:DSC episode on the right.)
Hello, CBS, the “two faces” UFP logo does NOT belong to you!
P.S. The faces were there to replace the Earth-centric olive branches, so adding the stylized branches back in is redundant.
(Edited to correct “laurel leaves” to “olive branches” to align the UFP logo with the UN logo upon which it is based.)
