Teehee, well, looking at what is happening in the background... >.>
To be honest Wishy, now I've read this thread and looked more closely at the banner. It looks more like the human and Klingon in the foreground and main focus area have something against STO or at least the the symbol.
One could say from looking at this banner that STO has been caught in the "crossfire" and now thanks to the artists rendition, we've seen the consequences in game. It's very similar to that situation, you know the one when you leave your room and your toys and other random things come to life, then freeze frame when you take a peek back in the room after you thought you heard something. lol
