Flight suits. Take away jippers and pockets from the ENT ones, dye the denim into departmental colours reflecting The Cage - Gold, Blue, Sandy Biege. Add a horizonal Starfleet (UESPA?) Delta and a Kelvin patch on each arm.

In TOS whenever colonists or miners are shown, they're usually in jumpsuits. I'm thinking Devil in the Dark, This Side of Paradise... Perhaps the rest of the Federation get Stafleet cast-offs from previous decades.

Re: The Kelvin's uniforms

Why does Abrams have "cohorts" instead of "co-workers"? Is he a super villain?

The Textured Uniforms, I believe, is there to add detail for the big screen.

Also, it has an interesting effect under lighting, if you look at the Bridge pictures.

I like the new uniforms, since they resemble the Original Series, are instantly recognizable, and yet add a level of detail necessary for the Big Screen.

Re: The Kelvin's uniforms

Silly question, but... if the Kelvin is contemporary with the 1701 in the film, why would the crews wear anything other than the same uniforms as the 1701 crew, but with different insignia?

It's not contemporary; more than one time period is depicted in the movie. The ship itself is supposed to be from a design generation before that of NCC-1701, and the events involving the Kelvin are supposed to include James Kirk's father among the crew and take place at a time before our Kirk's birth.

Because "Abrams and his cohorts" is a lot cooler to say than "Abrams and his co-workers."

That explains the "Death Star/Mordor" comment!

Re: The Kelvin's uniforms

As for the registry number. I'm really not sure what the fuss is. I see them as ID numbers, am I far off with that? Well your social security number (or whatever the equivalent is outside the US, I really don't know.) is your own personal ID. You might be asking what I'm getting at by making that comparison. Well here it is, one of my friend's social starts with 001.

Speaking of 001, if there was a problem with 0 being before the higher numbers, why is earth in Sector 001 as has been on screen many times. Wouldn't it be in Sector 1?

That and Enterprise... I know, ALOT of people don't like enterprise, but it still sets a precedent for the 0 registry, NX-01, not NX-1. So yeah... I personally don't see a problem.

Three-dimensional space is mapped with three grid axes: x, y and z.

Earth is at "0, 0, 1" on that grid.

The star charts I see on screen always throw me off. They always seem to show one layer of blocks instead of multiple. Hmm... wonder whats in sector 000, I would assume there is one.
