Hando you are correct Pike had four gold bars because he was a full admiral.
He had on his cuffs two thin gold stripes over a thick gold stripe with one thin gold stripe below.
Marcus had the same cuff stripes, however he had five gold bars as head admiral.
Starfleet at this point doesn't seem to have any Fleet Admirals.

Really? To me the updated TOS Gold/Red/Blue uniforms are perfect.

Which costumes are you referring to when you say the original cast uniforms?

I liked the tip of the hat to TMP with the white frontshields on the admirals.
Also, McCoy's medical outfit right near the end of the movie. Very TMP.

I love the uniform designs. To be honest, they make a hell of a lot of sense.

The burgundy from the movies.

I think the gray dress uniforms are a riff on those.

Ah, yes. The big, bulky wool coats with turtle-neck sweaters underneath them.

I liked the gray, which surprised me.

I liked the wetsuits more . Not enough below-the-waist shots, though.

I agree, the updated TOS uniforms don't really look that great. I actually like all the other uniforms we see in the Abramsverse, the Kelvin uniforms, the cadet uniforms, Pike's jacket he was wearing in the bar scene in XI, the admiral's uniform, and the dress uniforms and the flightsuits all look great. But the TOS style uniforms just look cheap and don't fit with the lineage established with the other outfits at all.

Re: Grey Dress Uniforms

I didn't like the color bands on the grey tunics at all. You do that on a tunic collar or on an epaulet. Made it look like an NFL warm up jacket.

At least they didn't Wehrmacht everything up like the producers of Starship Troopers did.

The flightsuits are meant to has transparent bands that simply show the colour of the shirt underneath.
In reality they just stuck a matching shape of coloured material behind the window.

That is my take, they are giving nods to the uniform change for TWOK by giving us a dress uniform which looks like it could be worn by sailors today up to using the "bus driver" service caps

I liked the TOS uniforms and wanted to see more of those and less of everything else. And yeah, the other outfits did unfortunately make the TOS uniforms look out of place at times.

Thinking about it now, it would have been nice if the Vengeance uniforms were exactly like the updated and embroidered TOS uniforms, but in black. Dark green or purple might have worked too.

Re: Grey Dress Uniforms

Not feeling the Vengeance uniforms, at all. I am a huge fan of the dress uniforms, because they actually look like military uniforms, rather than costumes.

I dont see it myself, theres nothing in the styling which would suggest those uniforms other than them being a smarter looking uniform to the TOS ones. The uniforms in the re-imagined BSG remind me more of the old movie uniforms (them and anytime I see Due South)

Which didnt make sense when Marcus changed in the shuttle unless she changed out of her dress and into a tunic and trousers before putting on the flightsuit. I would have thought she would have stuck the flightsuit over what she was already wearing.

I liked the grey uniforms, it was a nice update. More structured than the TMP uniforms, they looked smooth.
Not sure about the hats, wasn't expecting them, but they didn't look terrible. Thumbs up on the uniforms here.
