Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I voted for the late DS9 uniform but i did like the fact that the enterprise uniform had pockets.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

Late DS9/First Contact-Nemesis Uniform was my favorite, looked like a proper utility uniform, though my second favorite was the old TOS uniforms from the 60's.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I can't believe so many people like the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" season 3-7 uniforms. I used to like them mostly because of nostalgia because they are the uniforms I grew up seeing, but I'm starting to think they're really ridiculous. The collars are just too high, and it sucks that Picard and Riker have to keep pulling them down because they're so awkwardly designed at the bottom of the shirt. I must be the only person who liked the season one uniform more - I just find that line around the chest much more pleasing aesthetically than the collars.

I loved the First Contact uniforms when I first saw them because it was the first TNG movie I saw and obviously a huge improvement in terms of design and richness of colour compared to the TV uniform, but I find myself disenchanted with those now. Part of the reason is because I'm getting sick of them having to see them on DS9 (just started watching it in the past year) and the grey is starting to look dull to me.

Now my favourite is the early DS9 uniform. I love how much more varied and colourful it makes the cast look, with the colours being highlighted more since they spread across the shoulders instead of just being mostly buried under the grey. However, after watching First Contact yesterday, I have to admit that for some reason Data looks a lot cooler in the grey uniform than he does in the one with the yellow shoulders. I think the best single uniforms (as in not worn by everyone, but just one person) are Picard's vest in First Contact, Kirk's green wraparound tunic, and Picard's jacket over grey shirt. All very unique, classy-looking, and absolutely perfect for their wearers.

I chose the ST 2 - 6 movie uniforms, but truthfully, the First Contact uniforms were a close second. Even now, my opinion is vascilating between the two.


And, yes, for women, the TOS miniskirts is the absolute winner. But that's my fetish.
I agree with you on all accounts!

The First Contact uniforms are great and make more sense for Starfleet than the ST 2-6 uniforms do. Others have pointed out that the latter are too "military" in style for a supposed exploratory/non-military group. However, I find them visually appealing and sharper looking than anything that preceded for followed them.

I have always like the uniforms they were wearing in wrath of khan through to undiscovered country. i also like the uniforms that starfleet wears in the latter half of the 24 century(black and grey).

TOS. Second choice would be ENT. Then DS9/VOY. The rest look uncomfortable and hot,.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

Another vote for the First Contact/late DS9 unis. To me, they beat out all the other uniforms in both visual appeal and functionality (at least as far as we can assess the functionality of fictional uniforms used by a fictional organization hundreds of years in the future ). It looks very professional, and very sharp. And I do think that certain characters of the fairer sex (*cough*Ezri*cough*) do look particularly nice in it, as well. To quote Quark: "I love a woman in uniform!"

I do like both the early DS9/Voyager uniform and the TNG 3-7 uniform, also (although I never liked how stiff the collar looked on the latter). As for the 23rd century, the TWOK-TUC one isn't bad, but as others in this thread have said, it never looked right as a duty uniform. It had an almost civil war era flavor, with the stripes on the pants, the puffy white collar, and the decorations on the strap near the right shoulder. It would have been good as a dress uniform, with something a little more simple (and that didn't look so movement restricting) as the duty uniform.

The Enterprise uniform was certainly good in terms of looking right for it's time and setting. It still had a modern, NASA-esque quality to it, yet it looked just different enough to pass as something worn by Starfleet officers. And it does win for functionality, as well (actually, a couple of cargo pockets is something I've always thought would be a cool addition to the FC/DS9 black/gray uniform).

The worst uniforms are probably those ridiculous, no-collar, "stretched out one-piece" TNG season 1-2 ones, and those colorless, uber 70's, "PJs... in spaaaaaace" things from TMP.

The original TOS TV show uniform style is ok... it does look really dated to me, but it's not too bad. The main thing I didn't like about these was the low-cut top/miniskirt combo that every female officer was seen in past "The Cage". This is the exact opposite of the FC/late DS9 unis when it comes to female characters; it looked completely unprofessional and made no sense for a show set so far into the future. I know, I know... it was a result of when the show was made, but still.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I voted for the early DS9/VOY uniforms.

Here's how I see it:

TOS/TNG uniforms - too much color
FC uniforms - not enough color
DS9/VOY - just right.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

funny - our bookclub is discussing the uniforms right now. I voted the TOS unis - it's been indicated in our group that lack of pockets was fixed by magnatomical attachment of implements like phasers / tri-corders and such. I'm not completely convinced but for the sake of esthetic the TOS are the most streamlined and comfy looking. TNGers were always adjusting thier unis. seemed a little irksome - saving the galaxy - right after we unrumple!

Second choice is ENT's unis. Very utilitarian looking - even if they are jumpsuits - I suppose no one in space ever has restroom emergencies!?!?!? Of course not - they all practice bio-contiol - how silly of me . . .

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

Does anyone here like the uniforms from the future in all good things?
Thought they was ok but again no pockets.
