That's exactly the flippant attitude that got us into the three Nuditarian Wars.

The Ferengi reaction to seeing "clothed females" springs to mind.

id say its the uniforms that mostly make TMP feel and look like its from another series of movies than that of 2-6

imagine if TMP had the WOK uniforms...or vice versa...

This would take a ton of work, but I would love to see a TMP test scene with the TWOK+ uniforms grafted onto the cast. Any takers?

Actually, we've seen the TWOK costumes for so many movies, I would prefer the reverse. TMP uniforms in TWOK.

Colour-wise, they're a more natural progression from the CAGE era uniforms (as is the bridge colour palette).
I remember jackets at the end of the movie that went over the uniforms that looked to be directly for the cage.

To me, any time there is a Time Travel episode, those should have been for the far future, with ST II uniforms coming after TNG, were I to adjust the timeline of uniforms.

The TNG Nemesis movie uniforms are the worst, to me.

I don't think I want to see anyone over the age of 40 in those TMP outfits.

Spock's outfit with a collar looked ok. I'd be interested to see a TMP version that had a TWoK type jacket with shoulder pads (instead of a pyjama top) using the the TMP colour scheme and ordinary boots. It would probably look like a pastel version of an imperial uniform from Star Wars.

Re: What was wrong with the TMP uniforms?

I think my preference for "movie" uniforms would have been the tops from the two-piece TMP movies, with a slightly more vibrant color palette, combined with black pants/separate shoes boots (which occurs to me would probably look like the pants/boots from the TNG S3-7 uniforms).

I liked the monster maroons, but they'd be even better in black.

I liked Kirk's short-sleeved tunic and admiral's uniform, but the colors were blah.
This. Those were the only two good looking uniforms of the bunch.
We were used to the colorful gold, blue, red and green uniforms from TOS, and the 180 degree shift in the color pallatte to grey, tan and brown, plus the weird boots and the monitor-thing (and McCoy's disco medallion) was just unappealing to me.

Back in the 1980s, I thought they'd look good in grey, I guess sort of predicting the FC uniforms.

I'd like the 2-6 coats more if they were a little less busy and had any sense of continuity with what came before - say using the traditional stripes to indicate rank instead of the out-of-nowhere pins.
