All of the trekies know and love the old LCARS interface. Who doesn’t want one on their phone too? Here’s a lock screen that I created for my WP7.

The LCARS graphical user interface was designed by scenic art supervisor and technical consultant Michael Okuda. The original design concept was influenced by a request from Gene Roddenberry that the instrument panels not have a great deal of activity on them. This minimalized look was designed to give a sense that the technology was much more advanced than in the original Star Trek. Sounds like metro doesn’t it?
