Old Media Ninnies Alert: German Newscast Displays Star Trek Logo as Seal Team 6 Patch


Steve Gill* found an amusing little story. Apparently a German television news show had a report on Seal Team 6, the group responsible for taking down Osama bin Ladden, and the TV folks meant to show the military patch of the Seals on-air. But instead of showing Seal Team 6’s actual arm patch, the morons at the TV station used a logo designed by a Star Trek fan for a fictional terror group called “the Maquis, Seal Team 6.”

Of course, the ridiculous thing here is that all one has to do is look at the mistaken patch and it would be pretty obvious that it is not the Navy Seal patch of the U.S. military.

Logo for the fictional, Star Trek Maquis Seal Team 6

Seriously. Hello Germany… there is a phaser on the Maquis logo! That should have tipped you off. Not to mention the Klingon weapons in a circle at the bottom! Sheese. Do you guys pay attention at all?
