^ You think the TWOK uniforms were cool, look at this. Check under "Monster Blacks".
It is probably a very fun group; however, I am so glad our U.S. Marines are not that out of shape!
Out of shape? In that picture I just mentioned, there is no one actually IN that uniform...
I was referring to the first photo one sees when going to the page. Those people are definitely out of shape. As for the "Monster Blacks", I did not care for any of the Space Marines uniforms on that page.

I did say "the Monster Blacks" section...

As for the banner at the top of the page: It shows a different photo every time.

My, my, my... being a little overly defensive, huh? Well, I choose not to go that route. I still hated the uniforms when I scrolled down to see them. 'Nuff said.

Interesting group... that one with the black uniform instead of maroon. Anyone here a member of it? There were some cool uniform variations there, but I prefer the real stuff as seen in the series and films.

Re: Favorite Starfleet Uniform Design

Alright, this is probably how I would go about ranking the uniforms when it comes to those which I favor:

1. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan/TOS movie uniforms/Monster Maroons
2. Star Trek: The Next Generation mid series to late
3. Star Trek: The Original Series, the uniforms used most of the show
4. The later variations of the so-called "Monster Maroons"
5. Star Trek: First Contact and later Deep Space Nine uniforms
6. Star Trek 2009 uniforms
7. The early Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Voyager uniforms
8. Early TNG uniforms
9. The very early TOS uniforms
10. Star Trek: Enterprise uniforms
11. Star Trek: The Motion Picture uniforms

I prefer the Admiral's uniform from TMP.

I forgot to mention that in my post. Admiral Kirk's uniform is the only one from TMP that I liked. I also liked the nod when Pike wore it in ST09, although it wasn't as cool as the one from TMP.

Re: Favorite Starfleet Uniform Design

I went for the Khan era gear, though the TNG movie/late DS9 stuff always appealed to me. And still does. Oddly, my custom designs could be seen as a mix of the two.

I've always liked the TNG (s3 onwards) as it fits the feel of the show quite well, but for some reason I've recently wanted to put together a spandex s1 uniform. I really don't know why as I hated it growing up.

The new 2009 uniforms are also the perfect adaption to the classic ones and as for TMP - I hated most of them, but... liked the short sleeve variants.

Re: Favorite Starfleet Uniform Design

In terms of "Practicality" then the DS9/GEN/VOY uniforms would be the best, since they are lightweight, unrestrictive, temperature reactive and likely to be made with a strong material

However in terms of "Functionality" the TWOK uniforms serve that purpose better, in particular the "Away Mission Jackets", each of these jackets have several modules for Weapons, Communicators, Tricorders, Survival Supplies and spacious pockets, they are heavy and bulky and perhaps restrictive, however in harsh climate, they are ideal since they are likely made with a thermal material

It would be a close one for me but I think TWOK is my first choice. A close second would be the uniforms from Enterprise. IMO, they are the most practical and TWOK seems more "uniformish", for lack of a better term.

Re: Favorite Starfleet Uniform Design

I voted mid to late TNG because I absolutely love the Captain's jacket, especially with the leather shoulders. Marina Sirtis may have objected on the grounds they're a super ethical society that wouldn't use animal skin but come off it, it's replicated anyway and there are more important things to worry about.



You know it's awesome.

I, for one, never cared for the FC uniforms. They were all just too... similar. There was little color difference. The Voyager/DS9 ones are alright, I guess. They grow on your after a while.

Re: Favorite Starfleet Uniform Design

The only thing I don't get about the "Captain's Jacket" was the fact he wore a Gray regular uniform top underneath, what significance does the Gray Top serve? And does that not make the Captain's Jacket pointless if he's already wearing a top underneath?

Surely an Undershirt (like the DS9/Voy uniforms) and Captain's Jacket would be more practical?

unfortunately, they only used that one in one episode (I think it was Darmok). After that they replaced the leather with suede.
