Hi! What common font would you say is closest to the LCARS font, or, failing that, the most appropriate for Star Trek? I don't want to get involved with downloading new fonts for the program I am using, so what standard font would you suggest someone go with for a Star Trek or LCARS feel?

Many thanks, in advance.

Hi!

Don't know if you got your answer or not. Just in case you're still looking, most people I know (and me) use the Swiss 911 Ultra Compressed BT regular font. It the one that I think is the closest.

Swiss 911 was the daddy to it, so you can easily use it in a pinch.

We would all have it installed for us to see it if you used it.

There's a discussion here: http://www.lcarsc.com/showthread.php...-Font-Tutorial The website http://www.lcarsc.com has a bunch of stuff, so if the first link doesn't appeal to you you can always ask in the forums.
