Re: Would TMP have been better had they used the TOS uniforms?
Yeah. Roddenberry farted on paper. Some other guys came about and tried to make it better only to add to the stink. It's a miracle the film is as good as it is.
The fact of the matter, TMP is one of only two Trek films to be made by a proper filmmaker. The other being, ST09, of course.
Yada, yada, yada. Blah, Blah, Blah.
