I am typing the following table in LaTeX:

\begin{center}
\setlength\extrarowheight{5pt}
%\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.2}
\begin{tabular*}{3.4in}{@{\extracolsep{\fill} }  | c | c | c | c | c | c | c | }
  \hline
  \small\textit{g(t+0)} & \small\textit{g(t+1)} & \small\textit{g(t+2)} & \small\textit{f(t+3)} & \small\textit{f(t+4)} & \small\textit{g(t+5)} & \small{...}  \\
  \hline
\end{tabular*}
\end{center}

I get the following output:

  1. Note the overlap on the left. How can I remove them?
  2. How do I adjust the fonts to be centered in the middle of the columns other than on the bottom?

Add half the spacing through \extrarowheight and half when you break the row.

Also, you can use tabular instead of tabular*.

To fix the overlap on the left note that you have a spurious space in

@{\extracolsep{\fill} }

MWE

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{array}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
\setlength\extrarowheight{2.5pt}
%\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.2}
\begin{tabular}{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}  | c | c | c | c | c | c | c | }
  \hline
  \small\textit{g(t+0)} & \small\textit{g(t+1)} & \small\textit{g(t+2)} & \small\textit{f(t+3)} & \small\textit{f(t+4)} & \small\textit{g(t+5)} & \small{...}\\[2.5pt]
  \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
\end{document}

use a simple tabular or tabularx:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\begin{document}

foo

{\small\itshape
\begin{tabular}{|*7{c|}}  \hline
\rule[-2ex]{0pt}{6ex} g(t+0) & g(t+1) & g(t+2) & f(t+3) & f(t+4) & g(t+5) & \ldots\\\hline
\end{tabular}}

{\small\itshape
\begin{tabularx}{3.8in}{|*6{X |}c|}  \hline
\rule[-2ex]{0pt}{6ex} g(t+0) & g(t+1) & g(t+2) & f(t+3) & f(t+4) & g(t+5) & \ldots\\\hline
\end{tabularx}}

bar
\end{document}
