Re-Used Props - Badges & Jewelry
by
Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider

Official Badges and Emblems - Brooches and Other Jewelry

 

Many props of Star Trek were later modified or even recycled without changes for a different purpose or another civilization. Here are quite a few examples of badges and jewelry. Please note that every statement made here should be taken with a grain of salt. There is no need to seek for explanations. Certainly we are not supposed to watch closely enough to notice that galactic fashion is not as diverse as it should be.

 

Official Badges and Emblems

Admiral's pips The rank sign of Admiral Quinn in TNG: "Conspiracy" later appears on Haritath's coat in TNG: "The Ensigns of Command".

Postatomic emblem The emblem of the soldiers of the "Postatomic Horror" from TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint" can be seen as a part of the Romulan uniform in TNG: "Contagion".

Acamarian sash and necklace A chain sash worn by the Acamarian leader Marouk in TNG: "The Vengeance Factor" reappears as a Ferengi sash in DS9: "Q-Less".  The Ferengi also wears an Acamarian-style necklace.

Angosian emblem The Angosian badge from TNG: "The Hunted" was simply turned by -90° to act as the Hierarchy emblem on Star Trek Voyager. Tallera is wearing a smaller version of the Angosian emblem in TNG: "Gambit", which reappears on the Hierarchy uniforms of lower ranks.

Rutian emblem The Rutian badge from TNG: "The High Ground", composed of a number of rectangular semitransparent plastic parts, reappeared on the Boslic Jaheel's uniform, on the Delta Quadrant aliens from VOY: "Latent Image" as well as on Assan's racing overall. In DS9: "The Circle" the Kressari is wearing both emblems, the plastic rectangles and the postatomic triangle (see above). Note that on the depicted auction item the central metal piece of the plastic emblem is missing.

Terrorist communicator The terrorists in TNG: "Starship Mine" had communicators with a stylized depiction of a reptile. This characteristic device was re-used for the Mari and for the Ledosian badge on Star Trek Voyager.

Sanctuary District emblem The Sanctuary District authority in 21st century San Francisco (DS9: "Past Tense") is using a black&white emblem composed of a stylized eagle and a seven-pointed star with the city emblem. The logo was re-used for the shoulder patches of the Mari security in VOY: "Random Thoughts", now in black and red. The Mari seem to recycle just everything they find in the Alpha Quadrant ;-).

Sanctuary District police emblem A typical star emblem like of many police forces on Earth signifies the police of the Sanctuary District (DS9: "Past Tense"). It is actually just a part of the above full Sanctuary District emblem in color. The Tandaran military is using an identical patch (ENT: "Detained"). The city emblem of San Francisco seems to have been obscured in the Tandaran version though.

Red Squad pin The Red Squad emblem appears quite prominently in DS9: "Paradise Lost" and "Valiant". The Enolian security in ENT: "Canamar" is using the pin in blue.

Ilari collar While she is possessed by the consciousness of the Ilari dictator Tieran in VOY: "Warlord", Kes wears a collar with what appears to be an Ilari emblem. We can see the same collar in ENT: "Borderland", now around the neck of Orion slaver.

Enaran brooch An Enaran brooch seen in VOY: "Remember" is also used by the Lurian security (here slightly modified) in DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn" and by the Tarkaleans in ENT: "Regeneration".

Enaran emblem The Enaran emblem from VOY: "Remember" reappears as an Annari symbol in VOY: "Nightingale". Even the Annari uniform is exactly the same.

House of Mogh emblem Worf is wearing the emblem of the House of Mogh until DS9: "Soldiers of the Empire" when he becomes a member of the (at this time more honorable) House of Martok. The Illyrians in ENT: "Damage" have the same emblem on their uniforms, although it is rather unlikely that one of Worf's ancestors adopted them. ;-)
