Re: Generations Concept Uniforms?

The simplest explanation would be that they were a new uniform being phased in to replace the TNG uniforms, at least for duty in space, and new commands got them first. That's why DS9 and Voyager got them before the Enterprise (Caretaker was 334 stardates before Generations).

But since a difference in uniforms was never really talked about on screen, we'll never know.
Well, the simplest explanation is really just that there are different kinds of uniforms, not that one is newer or being replaced or whatever.

The intent in Generations seemed like the Enterprise crew was gradually changing over to the deep space nine kind, but we saw many starfleet officers much later than Generations still using the TNG style.

Based on the fact that they were referred to as such in the Star Trek Encyclopedia, which was written by members of the show's production staff.
I have the Star Trek Encyclopedia, and it says nothing of the sort under deep space nine, space stations, or uniforms.

Look, if you don't think the DS9 uniforms were originally meant to be station uniforms, that's your outlook. But there's more evidence than not (to me anyway) that that's what they were supposed to be.
Huh? How can there be different amounts of evidence for different people?

You claimed that the jumpsuits were clearly delineated on Deep Space Nine as the uniforms for space stations, and that just isn't the case.
