Re: Uniforms

NBC was the "full color network" at the time I believe, ABC and CBS were still in transition. And it was still owned by RCA possibly, and Star Trek often showed up in RCA television set print advertising.

There's definitely a glitch in the Matrix with Kirk entering the room he's already in while Uhura holds a phaser on Klingon Marlena.

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.
Personally, I'd have the male uniform as a loincloth and an endless supply of baby oil

Absolutely right, Bry, it can swing both ways.

Or they could wear those ridiculous man-skirts seen in early episodes of TNG, and later lampooned on Futurama.

Seriously... who thought these were a good idea? More to the point... how'd they get these poor guys to wear these?

Re: Uniforms

What you're wearing right now would look incredibly silly, if not offensive, to someone from 1713.

I like the manskants... they must breathe really well. It's a shame we never saw Picard in one

Getting paid union scale probably gets a lot of them to do things they wouldn't outside the studio.

HA! That is excellent.

I will never know what the Season 1 costume designers were thinking. Maybe it was in the spirit of gender equality, but come on. Do you see any self-respecting male Starfleet officer wearing that skimpy little number?

I can imagine for security officer engaged in hand-to-hand combat it would be of great benefit. It gives free, unrestricted range of movement--far better than the spandex bodysuits.

Plus the element of surprise. Who would expect a guy in a miniskirt to kick your butt?

They could also psych out the enemy by pooling a moony

Re: Uniforms

The best part of the uniform change in DS9 was when we come face-to-face with Bashir wearing the old uniform and realize that he's been replaced on the station by a changeling.

Invisible zippers. Look at Ro's uniform in her premier episode. Seamless... until it isn't.
To me, that's very futuristic.
Haven't seen the episode in years, but wasn't she wearing a backup communicator underneath?
