Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I have always liked Kirk's casual tunic from TOS, and the maroon tunic/jackets from the movies. I grew up in Las Vegas and had the wonderful opportunity to be a cast member at the Experience when it opened and a few years before it closed. I wore the original TNG uniform without the mandarin collar and the late season version as well. But all in all I have always felt that the late TNG DS9 VOY and post STFC uniforms with the jacket over the long sleeve department shirt were the best. And I really liked the vests Picard and Sisko wore as well.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

It would have to be the First Contact uniforms for me as well. A close second for me though are the Voyager ones. ...decisions decisions

For me, it's the piping across the chest. It just looks ridiculous, IMO, and really screams 80s. It kind of reminds me of Futurama, how so many shirts are "futurized" by adding those funky details on the shoulder... it just makes the uniform look like a parody of what people thought the future would look like in the 80s.
Fair enough...I think those lines look cool, though. Certainly a lot better-looking than those way too high collars of the later seasons. Nice avatar, by the way. Toronto never should have changed that logo. Just looking at it fills me with happy feelings of nostalgia. It's so classic.
Fair enough. To each their own, I suppose, as I much prefer the S3-7 uniforms.

And agreed on the Jays logo. They've brought the classic one back as something of a secondary logo, but I'm holding out hope that they'll re-instate it as the primary one someday.

I'd say I'm mixed between DS9 and TMP's uniform.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

The most practical would be the TOS uniforms. It's just your basic shirt, pants and insignia on the breast. I would change the insignia on the uniform to the insignia/communicator they had in TNG...that was a great idea in my opinion.

But the sharpest were the TOS movie 2-6 uniforms. Shatner and Nimoy looked pretty damn good in those red jackets.

None of the above. The only "uniform" I've ever thought both practical and cormfortable was the the black BDUs Pine wears in the second half of the movie.

Which is just the undershirt of the uniform. The gold/blue/red tunic goes on over it.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

The FC uniforms are the coolest looking... even though I imagine they're hot as balls and unpractical.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I think the design of the latter two uniforms is excellent, but I think that the season 3 TNG uniform, once they'd got rid of the Theiss crap (a skant for fucks sake!) was as close to a definitive star trek uniform as you can get. Look at the costumes they're flogging on e-bay, look what the sci-fi porn girls are wearing, look what people are basing odd looking corsets on...

I like the TOS, but now the new movie improves a classic design.

Certainly the ones introduced by First Contact, though I must say that lookalike Enterprise ones are actually really easy and cheap to make at home.
