Is not is not! It's the symbol from the movies -- Star Trek II is the earliest one I remember it from:



Edit: it's a pity, really, because in the Mirror Universe ENT episodes they even made sure the USS Defiant NCC-1764 uniforms had a ship-specific logo.

Yeah, Mirror Darkly was my reason for hope that the ship-specific logos might survive...

It's sort of a cross between the TNG Federation insignia and the one first seen in TMP, but it does bear more a resemblance to that of the TNG version.

The earliest appearance of the TMP Federation insignia was on the floor of the San Francisco airtram facility Kirk arrived at the beginning of the movie. It was similar to the one in TNG and later Trek productions, but it had a circular grid over the starfield and no prominent three stars.

The moment I saw those early spy pictures featuring cadet uniforms with the arrowhead insignia, I knew right away that the individual ship insignia system had been abolished.

New timeline, new rules, IMO...

I concur. Once I would say is and accident but it looks like he's doing this on purpose. I'm disappointed. These are the kind of issues that make me second guess the film. Ultimately I haven't resolved if the film will be anywhere close to canon...and frankly I still doubt it. But Time will tell.

But, if tbis is indeed a diffrent timeline in the film, then any diffrences would be accptable.
