Re: Uniforms

You know, there's one thing about Starfleet uniforms that's always bugged me a little. Most of the time it's obvious that they're one-piece jumpsuits, but then they have this miraculous ability to transform into a two-piece jacket and trousers combo. How exactly does that work?

Invisible zippers. Look at Ro's uniform in her premier episode. Seamless... until it isn't.

All fastenings and seams are cloaked.

Because it would just be terrible for the audience to see something as functional as a zipper.

To me, that's very futuristic.

Re: Uniforms

It's a good thing I wasn't the costume designer. The men would all be in the standard uniforms. The women would all be wearing boy shorts, sports bras, and go-go boots.

So you designed the mirror universe uniforms in ENT?

You know, it probably does date back to when I first saw "Mirror, Mirror" in 1967 at 16.

There's a Mirror Universe in ENT? Oh, goodie. That's something I'll look forward to with lively anticipation.

Re: Uniforms

I still think they should have gone all out and given all the guys goatees, but we only got one. It would have really fit evil Malcolm.

Re: Uniforms

Pffff! Yeah, those female crew members' uniforms look really practical. They'd offer a lot of protection in combat, too.

That's a great expression on Archer's face.

Re: Uniforms

Yeah, that was silly at best. I'd almost say I liked the mirror uniforms save for the female version just can't be taken seriously at all. Why not just issue T'pol and Hoshi a bikini to wear on duty?

As for Mirror Archer... yeah he has that "I hate my parents" look on his face the whole episode.

Someone should have told the costume designer that sparkly gold sashes do not = evil.
