Re: "Polaris"

About an hour.

Enterprise was not one of my conscious jumping-off points for those outfits, but I can see where the resemblance might lay - mainly in that stripe that surrounds the yoke. In fact, in an earlier version the stripe was satin gold and someone felt it looked too much like an Enterprise command uniform. So I changed it to silver. There's also the matter of what the outfit lacks - basically, bright colors other than the stripe and patch - which groups it with Enterprise rather than other Trek shows.

Other than that I emphasized buckles, buttons, pockets and other detail partly because they make sense and partly because shows like Trek don't.

I think the main, non-Trek inspiration for the senior officers' outfits is probaby pretty obvious. I only steal from the most obvious...oh, I'm sorry, it's "homage." It's always homage.
