My main question is, you say you're building towards TOS, have a first Federation Starfleet uniform designed, but what of the 2230's USS Kelvin uniforms and technology seen in the last movie? I realize thats 60+ years ahead of the Federation's beginnings, but I'm curious if that era's look and feel was an influence.
I approached the uniform design as an intermediate step between the ENT and Kelvin
uniforms, with elements foreshadowing later uniform designs as well.
Glad to hear it! After seeing previews of Federation: The First 150 Years
make no mention of anything from the Kelvin era, I was starting to wonder if the novelverse was going to ignore it too.
