NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), living long, prospering and scouting the red planet since 2006, recently spotted and captured a series of strange chevron symbols on a Martian sand dune in the southeast Hellas Planitia region.

Not a Tricorder, but the MRO HiRISE (High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera took the series of photos, one in particular is quite extraordinary.

"Enterprising viewers will make the discovery that these features look conspicuously like a famous logo," the camera team behind the MRO HiRise image said.

Shapes on the red planet were created by wind, lava and sand dunes....the crescent-shaped dunes, surrounded by after-eruption solidified lava, leave "footprints" or "dune casts" as the wind blows over the dunes, displacing much of the sand.

Spock was not spotted. That would seem logical.
