Re: What was wrong with the TMP uniforms?

Wasn't there also a problem with the way the pants were designed into the boots, making them difficult to remove? It seem like an impractical uniform in that respect.

Though probably the most practical uniforms in all of Star Trek were those on the NX-01, as they had pockets.

Re: What was wrong with the TMP uniforms?

Those ENT uniforms were also very tight. That kind of diminishes their practicality somewhat as they were still designed more to look good on actors.

If Chief DiFalco wasn't wearing her uniform while off duty (which is fine), then would not what she was wear be "civilian clothing?" We saw this frequently in TNG.

I'm not sure exactly what a off duty uniform is suppose to be.

In TNG, the ship was designed to have civilians on board, and to have facilities for them. Civilians were never regularly assigned to Kirk's ship, just for special instances.

CCC.
While there might not be any civilians on Kirk's ship, there were civilian articles of clothing.
Yes and I can't remember the episode in particular of the top of my head where we saw a lot of it in the corridor, but that Enterprise remains primarily a military ship with limited civilian activity facilities, and certainly no Holodeck.

Which reminds me, in the TNG episode where Geordie is brainwashed by the Romulans, why is he wearing his uniform in the shuttle? If he is on leave, shouldn't he be in civies?

CCC.

That's just the tailoring. The non-actor (realistic?) variation would be loose so you could use the pockets.

Because the wardrobe budget was spent else where.

Could be he was going to change when he got to his destination.

The ones that fans can wear perhaps, but on the show, they were all snug and atomic wedgie-inducing for both regulars and extras alike.

The "in universe" idea was that it was beamed on and off (as with Ilia's robe), so practicality wasn't supposed to be an issue - in real life, however, they were super uncomfortable and the actors hated them.

Geordie was on a Starfleet issue shuttle craft. Maybe regulations call for the pilot to be in uniform when in flight?
