The big reason Star Trek fonts don't see much use is that they're not very readable when scaled down (I'm using a 10 pt. font).
They're generally very wide fonts - which is a huge consideration given the chosen medium.
The font used on ships in TNG-VOY is, by contrast, too narrow for my liking. It's also hard to read due to being so tall too.
I'm a typography nut, so I've paid attention to it. The title page needs a re-do.
Anyways, I'm finishing up the next issue. I have quite a few panoramic shots in this one with two characters of mine in several shots. It looks cool - especially when combing emotes across shots.
