I liked the addition of the Rad Suits in TMP- also the Security outfit with extra padding and a helmet. I think having special outfits for certain functions which have hazards help makes the whole being on a ship vibe.
Agreed. Having specialized uniforms is an extension of the navy metaphor that started with TOS. In the modern US Navy, specialized jobs have specialized uniforms like those worn on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. It lends a sense of credibility and verisimilitude to the environment.
