With US President Donald Trump recently unveiling the new US Space Force logo, netizens can’t help but notice an uncanny resemblance of the logo with the emblem of the Starfleet Command insignia from the American science fiction series “Star Trek”.
“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!” tweeted Trump while sharing the picture of the logo.

With Trump having a Twitter following of over 71 million, it did not take long for the post to go viral, prompting reactions from many, including George Takei, one of the actors in the series.
“Ahem. We are expecting some royalties from this…” tweeted Takei, American actor who played Sulu in “Star Trek”, while sharing the logo.
