Re: Conjectural movie era uniforms

What kind of material would these be made with? For that matter, what kind of material would the TWOK uniforms be made of? I'm thinking about getting one of these made for myself.

Officer's duty uniforms inspired by Kirk's Nexus vest. For these less fancy uniforms red has been phased out except for the senior officers. The red version of the coat is only worn by the captain and the first officer. Science and medical has again been combined under a single colour. Movie uniforms remain as formal wear.

These look awesome, especially the red one. I can actually see these in place of the First Contact/DS9 gray shouldered uniforms. I think I'd even prefer them.

Alternate jumpsuits. Mostly worn by enlisted personnel, but also on occasion by officers that find pockets handy, such as engineers.
I like these!

I like the pocket idea. One thing I noticed from the early movies (original cast) was that Scotty had a sleeveless vest with a breast pocket for holding various tools. That might be another option for the engineering uniform.

YMMV

Re: Conjectural movie era uniforms

Would you consider making the grey jumpsuits in TWOK red, but using the color pattern of the original TNG jumpsuits? Could you also do the same for the two-piece uniforms?

I'd be interested in how both would look.

I usually hate fan-made uniform designs ... but I really find all of these very attractive. They also fit well in the timeline between the TUC formality and the TNG jumpsuit explosion.

Re: Conjectural movie era uniforms

So is this to tie into the new movie universe, as once the time goes through to the 24th century?

Succinct reply, and seconded.

That being said, as much of a travesty as the new universe's plot is, the design work is frequently impressive, and it would be interesting to see someone's take on what the uniforms would look like later on. I've done a First Contact-era set by sort of combining the JJ-TOS uniform with the Prime-FC one, but I've not really thought the intervening evolution out.

On a related note, there are other sites that have suggested the Class-A/Class-B distinction before. Some have even gone so far as to suggest that the red "bomber jacket" worn by Scotty in Star Treks III and IV was the Class-B, although that makes less sense when one considers that we never actually saw it on anyone else. I always just sort of figured Scotty was going casual to give Starfleet a giant "screw you" for sticking him on Excelsior.

Did we see that jacket on Scotty before he was promoted to Captain? Kirk also wore that jacket in STV, but outside of his and Scotty's, you're right - we never saw them on anyone else. Could this be a Captain-only variant, similar to Picard's suede jacket from TNG?

Didn't Admiral Morrow wear it at one point?

Did Kirk wear it? I thought it was just the vest (another thing we usually only see on various captains, I might add), but then again, it's been years since I've seen V, being as I am of the Roddenberry school-of-thought on that one ("Oh god, how could we make something that sucks this hard, it never happened, happy place, happy place...").

But it is perhaps a Captains-only thing. Certainly it was after Scotty's promotion, because that came with the transfer, although he may have been wearing it when the Enterprise pulled into Spacedock... hell, someone is probably going to have to check on that.

This one here? Yes, Kirk wore it in Star Trek V. It was certainly one of the inspirations for the earlier class B, but in itself it does not really look like uniform meant for general use.
