I have looked and looked on Google images, eBay, Amazon, Star Trek shop, Memory Alpha... There are no references whatsoever to this badge design yet I obtained this commercially available example 20+ years ago.

Which series or stories is it from? What does the symbol mean?

    Do you recall where you obtained this from?

    Was it "commercially available" in the sense of being mass-produced, or could it have been the creation of a fan that was sold somewhere?

    Someone on this thread says it was a header page for the Star Fleet Technical Manual (originally a fan creation, though it proved popular enough that it was eventually licensed by the Trek IP owners).

    @Ruutsa - Voyager takes place primarily in the delta quadrant, not gamma.

    @Ruutsa - we all make mistakes! (Even Star Trek fans :-) ) I wasn't sure myself; had to look it up before I commented!

The symbol (lower-case gamma) Starfleet badge appears in the Starfleet Technical Manual, along with a variety of other non-canon badge designs.

To the best of my knowledge, it's never been produced as an official badge design which suggests that it was sold to you as a bootleg.
