In honor of J.J. Abrams reboot, I wanted to do something for Star Trek. So, for the fanboys, here are some Star Trek fonts! The original fonts are the property of Bitstream and were offered around 2000 in a bundle called “Li’l Bits“. Got a 3.5 floppy drive? You can still find it on ebay and Amazon for about $5. These fonts are currently sold by MyFonts.com for $25 each, but have been renamed Horizon, Sonic and Galaxy .
If you want a real fan experience, there are several fan-created fonts which are “inspired” by the originals used in the TV shows and movies. In fact, if you name a popular series or movie, chances are Da Font has a fan-created font to match. The following fonts are all free from Da Font:
Original series: Federation Classic font (lower case is italic)
Star Trek movies, Deep Space & Voyager: Star Cine font
Next Generation: Star Next font
New movie: Federation Classic font (upper case is normal)
Fun Star Trek dingbats: Prime Directive font
There is also a great video on YouTube which shows all of the logos leading up to the new movie – Enjoy!
