New Aurabesh StarWars font, by Peter Schuster
of Austria replaces our old version of Aurabesh by Mike E. Webb.
A note from Peter:
This is a "new and improved" version of the Star Wars Aurebesh font.
The one done by Mike Webb is good, but a little incorrect. I took some authorized
RBG books by Westend Games to do a completly new font. Now the punctuation marks are
all correct, there are no invented characters and I did new numbers. Glyphs I corrected include
comma, period, semicolon, quotes, the dollar sign, the numbers etc. I am not sure if the numbers are
right. I took them from several technical readouts. They also could be "ten or hundred numbers".
Upper and lower case are the same since there is no uppercase or lowercase in the SW universe.
The font is written from left to right of course. It was made with SOFTY, the shareware font maker.
Tommy's Note: Although this was made with SOFTY, I had no problems with this version in any way,
and it should run well on all systems.
For yet another Aurabesh font, or other StarWars fonts - go
to Treehouse commercial sales page in the links page.
StarWars Ewok font By Mike H. Lee. Scott Watson sent us a GIF he made of letters he made out
from a scroll shown on the Ewok Cartoon episode The Haunted Village, and also from other
episodes. There are more characters Scott wasn't able to catch, and the characters do *not* represent
the keys they they are on. Each character seems to stand for a word or situation. Ewok
is written up and down.
StarWars Veknoid [Boonta] font By Mike H. Lee. The Veknoid [Boonta] font comes from the Star Warsr movie "The Phantom Menace"r and the Scrapbook. The info for this font comes from Scott Watson. Seeing that info for this font is small, expect an update.
NOTE: This font was previously named Boonta after the festival it is seen in, but we renamed it Veknoid because Mike Dolan found out that the Boonta festival & Pod races seem to be inspired by the Veknoid aliens. The Veknoid [Boonta] symbols are visible on the Racing Pod of Teemto Pagalies (A furry, Bulldog-faced being) in the Incredible Cross-Sections Book. Teemto has been identified as a Veknoid, another species famous for having many members who are Podracers.

StarWars Droid font By Mike H. Lee. The Droid font comes from the
Star Warsr movie "The Phantom Menace"r and the book StarWars Episode 1 Visual Dictionary.
The info for this font comes from Scott Watson. This is the Galactic Basic numerals used to
identify Droids. The font is canon 0 thru 9 and A thru J. The rest of the font was invented
by Mike, if more info is forthcoming he will update the font.

Trade Federation StarWars font, by Peter Schuster
A note from Peter:
I discovered these characters on the official Star Wars website.
You can find them on their new feature, the Droid Viewer. All characters
are cannon as far as I could decipher them. They are pretty small. I was
not able to find an X yet, but I will update the file as soon as possible.
I called it the Trade Federation Font, cause this interactive feature is called
"Federation Droid Viewer". I also noticed, that there are several characters that are the same
as in the "Droids" font.
It is completley done by myself, with the SOFTY Shareware tool. ( Thanks for
whoever did it.) Feel free, if you want to modify or improve it.

There were various problems, but the latest fix by Gary Ortmertl seems to have fixed everthing!
StarWars Trade Huttese font By Tommy & Mike Dolan from a source sent by Mike Dolan
from Star Wars Insider Magazine #35, Winter 1997. Article: "Making Special
Edition Collectibles - A Talk with Designer Eric Larson", pages 63-67. The
single picture appears on page 65.
Relevant quotes: "I created some boxes for Pizza Hut...I then created
"Jabba's Alphabet." Years ago at a World con, I got to work for Howard
Kazanjian, the producer of Jedi and Raiders. We had to put the frozen Han
Solo and speeder bike together for the exhibit, and while doing so I noticed
the writing on the props. I asked Howard what it was and he told me it was
Hebrew, so when I designed Jabba's alphabet I used a modern Hebrew font as a
model." -- from Designer Eric Larson.
Mike Dolan and I feel than since nothing is made for StarWars without
the OK of Lucas & Co., this is as canon as Trade Huttese will get.
StarWars Nal-Huttese font by Mike H. Lee from
the movie "The Phantom Menace"r & the associated "Scrapbook".
The info for this font comes from Scott Watson. If more info is forthcoming Mike
will update the font. It is based on Annakin's Pod Racer console
screen, which we assume uses Nal-Huttese, since the Hutt control
Tantooine. We feel Nal-Huttese is the native huttese, while the
Trade-Huttese is a trade language designed to interact with the

StarWars Yavin 4 temple font. By Tommy. I recently got a look
at THE ILLUSTRATED STARWARS UNIVERSE book, the only alien font there was one on the Yavin 4 temple walls. That was the temple on the moon from which they attacked the first DeathStar in the movie - StarWars:A New Hope. The script has been named Teresian in the StarWars comic books, which also stated the temple was an ancient site of Sith Lord worship. If true, it is ironic that the Emperor [a Sith lord] had his first Death Star wiped out by a Jedi from a Rebel Base that used to be a Sith temple!
I have seen a few other bits of scripts on Darth Vader's trunk & on the Cloud miners 2x fighter,
but not enough to font anything worthwhile. I have been given reports that there are scripts
in various Lucas Arts games, but I don't have them & haven't seen them. Also fans tell me that
there have been pics released from the new movie that have new scripts. Can anyone help with
more info on another StarWars alien script/lettering/glyphs?
UPDATE: The lettering on Vader's chest is reported to be ancient Hebrew, info by
Paul Davidson, aka Tinman.
Mike H. Lee's & Josh Dixon's Dune Guild true type font: This Guild font
(from the Dune series) was taken from a card in connection with the Guild. The letters
were picked out the best that we could.
The entire font is canon and was font by: Michael Lee & Josh Dixon 2-3-98.
Dune Fremen true type font: This Fremen font (from the Dune series) form was given by
John Quijada, Creator of the script (Fremen Alphabet from the Dune Encyclopedia 1984),
who helped supervise the creation of this font. Also John Quijada invented the numeric
system for this Fremen font and it is seen here for the first time anywhere!
Like Arabic, Fremen is written right-to-left. Yet even though Fremen script is written
right-to-left, numbers are written left-to-right, just like our numbers! Therefore, the symbol
for "734" using Fremen symbols is also sequenced as "734", not "437" as you might expect
for a right-to-left writing system.
Josh Dixon: Compiled the Fremen Font information and worked extensively on the final
Kufic-looking style that the font is in.
The entire font is canon and was font by: Michael H. Lee & Josh Dixon with John Quijada.
Dune Galach (Imperial) true type font: The Galach used in
this font was taken from the 1984 movie of DUNE in which numerous
golden wall panels and pillars are shown with Galach letters embossed
in them (Seen in the Imperial Palace on Kaitain and Castle Caladan
for those who have seen the movie. Letters on Castle Caladan are seen
on the widescreen version alone.). The script looks like a modified
version of the Roman alphabet. All the letters (except for a few to
fill out the numerals) are canon, since Herbert gave his blessing on the movie.

Mike H. Lee's & Josh Dixon's Dinotopian true type font: This Dinotopian font comes
from the book: Dinotopia "The World Beneath" by James Gurney and illustrated by James Gurney.
The entire font is canon and was font by: Michael Lee & Josh Dixon 2-3-98.
Mike H. Lee's & Josh Dixon's Drac true type font: This Drac font comes
from the movie Enemy Mine, from the writing found in the book used by the
Drac to teach the human. Though two pages of the Drac text are
shown in the movie there is actually only one, because they took the
first page and turned it upside down to get the second page.
Thats why some of the characters are turned over upside down in the font.
The entire font is canon and was font by: Michael Lee & Josh Dixon 4-25-98.
Mike H. Lee's Kanamit true type font:
This Kanamit font comes from the Twilight Zoner
series episode To Serve Man. We only have eleven
letters that are canon (A thru K). These letters are
seen on the cover of the book that one of the Kanamits
leaves at a U.N. meeting. The rest of the font was
created by myself.
Michael Lee 1-15-99
Mike H. Lee's Kilrathi true type font: This Kilrathi font comes from 1999
Movie: Wing Commander. The Canon letters are (A thru P), the rest of the font was
invented by Mike. Kilrathi is an Ideographic language - the letters stand for a word
or Idea. The little squares and dots change the meaning of the characters. The
Kilrathi font, from what Mike has seen, can be written left to right & up and down.
Michael Lee 3-17-99
Mike H. Lee's Krell true type font: This font is
based on the alien Krell lettering from the great older movie FORBIDDEN PLANETr.
This movie is considered to be the origin of the StarTrekr StarFleet concept &
also one of the origins to the B5r Earthforce. Thus one might say this is the
"prequel" to all trek & B5 alien fonts.
For more info about the movie & the Krells visit the
The Krells Page.
Mike H. Lee's Kromagg true type font: This font is
based on the alien Kromagg lettering on the T.V. series Sliders.
Kromagg is written left to right. Sliders new home is on the Sci-Fi Channel.
Thanks, Darwin, for the source pic!

Daniel U. Thibault's Kzinti true type font: This font is
invented based on what is known about the Kzinti & their described script
from Larry Niven's & his associates' books about Known Space, and on the Kzinti
appearance in a StarTrek Animated Series episode The Slaver Weapon. WARNING: This font was made with Softy,
the limited shareware fonting program, and so it does not work with all systems/programs.
Windows 3.1 Writer has spacing problems with the characters [overlapping], and IBM/MAC
font converters can't convert it. However, no Win95 or WORD user has reported any problems.
An updated version is expected soon without problems.
03-24-98. Updated - recompiled TTF with Softy 1.07.
08-04-98. Updated - recompiled TTF with Softy 1.07b.
StarGate SG-1 Go-ald true type font: This font is
based on symbols used on the SpacePortal in the movie Stargate and on what I could find
about the symbols used on the controls in the SF cable series StarGate SG-1. It is all "canon"
but the glyphs keyboard position in the font have nothing to do with an alphabet. Thanks to
Terry L. Roe for assistance with the source files & the StarGate Website address.
NOTE: more recent shows have revealed that this symbol font is based on the Ancients, and has nothing
really to do with the Go-ald. However, I am not going to rename it.

Meroitic (Hieroglyphics and Demotic) true type fonts by
Reinhold Kainhofer: Both the movie Stargate and the TV series StarGate SG-1
have shown hieroglyphic fonts
as a main Go-ald alien writing form, supposedly invented by Go-ald aliens and taken
over by humans. This zip contains 2 fonts, one with *some* of the hieroglyphs of Egypt and
another of the Demotic form used later.
Ugaritic Cuneiform true type fonts by

based writing of the "perfect people" in the renaisance book
UTOPIA, by Thomas Moore. Some consider this book the first SF book ever.
