Re: What's with all the phaser rifles?

I'd rather think both styles of uniform were in use simultaneously - neither was older or newer than the other. It's just that the one that looked more like working coveralls was used for, well, work (DS9, small ships), while the other one was the more pompous style that was worn in official situations (UFP Flagship and other big ships, Starfleet Headquarters). And Picard ran a tight ship for seven years, not allowing the people in the coveralls to expose themselves to the dignitaries visiting the ship, but then let his hair down for ST:GEN.
