starbase one

Make the "OK" sign with your hand. Your index finger is touching the your thumb and your other three fingers are curling off into space.

For some reason, I've lately been doing this with my hands when I have nothing else to do with them, and I've found myself tracing a shape with the tips of my forefingers on the pads of my thumbs. It was only this morning while driving that I realized what that shape essentially is:



It (seen here in the centers of those orange boxes, repeated twice) is the "starbase" icon from the old Intellivision game Space Spartans. There's no particular significance to this; it's just a shape and symbol that always appealed to me and always, for some reason, stuck with me through thirty years of ingesting video game iconography.
