1st Logo (1994-1997)

Visuals: Unknown

Technique: A mix of CGI and live-action.

Audio: A dramatic-sounding synth string fanfare, with sounds of the actions throughout, which changes into a '90s synth-pop instrumental. Composed by Czech musician Jan Hammer, most notable for making the Miami Vice theme.

2nd Logo (1997-2003)

Visuals: There are multiple views of the Czech capital of Prague at night, before we go closer to see the Nova logo on a neon sign on top of a building. The neon sign is then turned off, as the screen then pans away from it into the night sky.

Technique: Live-action.

Audio: A synthesizer piece, also composed by Jan Hammer, who scored the previous logo, while also being accompanied by the sound of helicopter rotors.

3rd Logo (1997-1999)

Visuals: On a blue background is the Nova logo with a neon glow (from the previous logo) zoom out with a trail and settle itself on the center of the screen.

Variant: Around 1998-1999, the logo uses a blue searchlight background.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A synthesized sting.
