Uniforms

Starfleet uniforms are some of my favourite pieces of costumery in television or film - but which do you guys think was the best look?

I know we'll have had this thread many times prior, but I'm new here and I want to gauge some opinion.

For me, I think my favourite is the TNG uniform from Season 3 and onwards. It's very striking and looks very good. Close second is the DS9 and VOY uniforms tied with the TOS uniforms which I adore.

Re: Uniforms

Easily the First Contact era movie uniforms. They made the Federation look more profossional than the bright primary colors in TNG and in TOS. I also like the TOS movie era uniforms from TWOK on. They looked great but I would hate to have to put that on everyday as they looked somewhat cumbersome.

Re: Uniforms

The Enterprise uniforms from the 2009 reboot. TOS + big budget + full length pants = winner.

If it weren't for nostalgia clouding my judgement, I'd go for the realistic and practical uniforms worn in Star Trek: Enterprise.

I've never been a fan of any of the TNG TV uniforms. I used to like the First Contact ones, and they looked cool in the movies, but I quickly grew bored of them in DS9.

The Wrath of Khan uniforms look like good dress costumes, but seen impractical for day-to-day wear. Plus they make everyone look like Space Mounties.

All-time worst has to be the alt-future ones seen in "All Good Things," "The Visitor," "Endgame" etc.

Re: Uniforms

Surprised to see majority like the late DS9/TNG movie uniform... to be it's rather dull.

My fave is the TNG Season 3-7 unfirom as well Thete.

Re: Uniforms

TNG for me.

I didn't care for the DS9 ones with the zipper. It always seemed like people just had them unzipped way too low. May be my military mind that's ingrained with uniformity, but that always bugged me.

Re: Uniforms

I'm another fan of the TNG movie uniforms. They just looked "smarter" to me than the others, and more "taking business seriously-ish."

A few different variations of this would have been nice, too.

Agree. 2009 reboot and TWOK are my best.

Re: Uniforms

The movie uniforms from ST II - VI are my favorites, but I did like Kirk's wrap-around shirt from the series. And . . . the ladies mini's, of course!

Here's a question...

Why is it that in 100 years starfleet uniforms went from

Yellow = Command and Red = Engineering/Security to

Red = Command and Yellow = Engineering/Security?

Because Patrick Stewart looked better in red than yellow.
