In the DVD extras there's a featurette about the making of the opening and closing credits and a couple of other stuff Kevin Davies was in charge of making in the show. He identifies the font as SPECTRUM. But not only is that a bit unspecific, all the fonts i've found with that name don't match. Please, HELP ME!
Many years ago I had a Letraset catalogue and the Spectrum font used in Terrahawks was in it. That would be good place to start

Very useful information Rob.
Chartpak dry transfers were also available around that time - but they didn't have as large a range as Letraset.

Thanks Rob - I am sure your skills will come in very useful! Wow just realised that when I first created this thread EIGHT years ago had no idea it would still be alive and well and had over 25,000 views!!!! Nothing I have ever written has that many views - closest I got to publication was being mentioned in an issue of SF&FM in 2005 lol.

It's not an extended font because the "0" is circular.
It looks like Futura Regular to me.
