At the moment ST:2-6. But they all kind of suck to be honest.

Had they used black pants for the TMP uniforms, they may have actually gotten my vote. I think the colors of the uniforms had to be broken up more. That would have also eliminated all the comparisons to pajamas.

^Top row, second from left - TMP uniform, but with black & red coloring! I really like how it looks!

So yeah, a little *color* does wonders for that uniform!

(Odd about the coloring...'cause I was surprised at how well the animators got many/most of the Trek details - including a future Starfleet com-badge from TNG/Voy...I wonder if the coloring folks in Korea or India or burundi burundi or wherever they outsource it to was responsible for that...?)

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I've always loved the TWok-TuC movie uniforms, though I do see where they would be rather impractical. The jumper cadets and enlisted wore would probably be a better standard outfit.

I voted the Enterprise uniform. It's not very pretty but it seems practical and realistic.

FC/INS/NEM version.

ENT ones a close second for having, y'know POCKETS

TOS a close third for sheer iconicness

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I voted First Contact version. It seems more logical that a military uniform look... you know... like a uniform more than a rainbow.

My one exception is TMP's Admiral Kirk wearing his grey/white uniform. With black pants it would have been perfect.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

You know...I've always wondered what those TWoK onward movie "band uniforms" would have looked like if they weren't just red...but red, gold, and blue, like the TOS ones...

Would they have looked to....garish...and silly? (The colors could have been muted, not technicolor or anything...)

^Though, that would have been a good time to implement the later TNG-ear change between who wore red or gold...I can't imagine Shatner looking so good in a gold version of the TWoK/TSFS/etc uniform for some reason...red just seems to suit him better in the films... *shrug* (Maybe that's because that's just what color I am *used* to seeing him wear in the films! Lol!)

I did read once - many years after first seeing the first three post TMP-movies - that the undershirts, jacket lining/backing & shoulder strap's of the TWoK red uniforms were supposed to be color-coded for department...but they didn't always follow that (and white seemed to be the default "dress" undershirt color) and I don't think most people noticed it even...(I sure didn't until it was pointed out to me!)

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I like the ones we saw in DS9 and Voyager, the black uniforms with red, gold or blue shoulders.

I also like the TNG uniforms.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I have a few favourite uniforms. For a long, long time, the TOS uniforms were Star Trek uniforms to me - so they are favourite. I also really, really like the FC/late DS9 uniforms. Everyone looks good in them. I also like Kirk's admiral cream and teal uniform from TMP. And I like the TWOK/movie unforms. I think, overall, though, it's the late DS9 uniforms. My least favourite are the Voyager jumpsuits followed by the season one TNG uniforms.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

My favorite uniform of all Trek is Captain Kirk's wraparound from the first season, as seen in "The Enemy Within," "Charlie X," and "Court Martial." I even own a damn near close replica of it. Gotta change the braid to something a bit more accurate. Oh, and the ship's patch also needs to be changed out. Right now, it's the third-season more pointy emblem, not the rounded tip of the earlier seasons.

Okay, I'm a Trek uniform geek. There I admit it.

Then it's TOS in general.

Second, the TMP uniforms because of the variety they had.

Third, the first and second season TNG uniforms. I like the clean lines of Thesis design, although I would've gone with a more forgiving fabric. You have to be really fit to wear one of those puppies.

Finally, the utilitarian look of ENT. In fact, I loved the entire look of that series overall. The uniforms, the NX-01, and the sets.

But I gotta say, I'm loving the nuTrek uniforms.

The late-DS9/FC/Nemesis uniform is my favourite.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

Ugh, why do people love the TNG films uniforms? I thought they were boring because there was so little color on show. I preferred the season 3-7 TNG uniforms, I thought they looked great.

As much as I liked the others, I still went for the Enterprise uniforms. They actually looked like space flight suits.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

Thinking about it, I more or less like all of the uniforms we have seen throughout the various series and movies. But I have a soft spot for the classic TOS uniforms and DS9's later First Contact uniforms. I voted for the TOS ones since I can only vote for one.
