I personally, love them. They're not Darian's, but I still love them.

These almost look too simplistic to be actual insignia.

The whole "Greek Key" motif running through them seems like an afterthought. Why not "Egg and Dart" molding on the Battle School, too?

Does it actually REPRESENT anything? If it is actually being used in the production, does it indicate some stark aesthetic to the world of 207X? It's certainly not "flashy," in a world (our current world) where everything is flashy! So does it represent a stark, drab, future world?

I'm thinking one of three things:
    It's fake; it's a teaser. It's meant to mislead
    It's intentional, and it means something (but...what?)
    It's accidental/careless/meaningless (I hope not, though!)
    The Greeks have found a way out of their current economic collapse, and rule the world in the future

So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

I don't know where the whole Greek theme is coming from, but I like them. I think they look better on the uniforms than by themselves.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Maybe it's the whole "We are SPARTANS!" attitude.
