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.

Interestingly enough, there are some similarities in the reasoning behind LCARS and the Metro interface that WP7 uses. 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?
