A look at Spock's jammies from TMP

In my latest installment to my "Starfleet Guide To Style", I take a look at an odd peice: Spock's sickbay togs as seen in TMP. They were never seen before or since. Get the full story at:

Seriously, what is with all the TMP threads? If we're not careful, the mods will insist on a single running commentary thread for the film!

I'm actually hoping for the creation of a special sub-forum just for topics related to The Motion Picture. They can even call it "The V'Ger Orifice" if they want."

I loved the TMP uniforms. If they just got the comfort and the *ahem* bulge problem figured out we would've seen them again. We might after Trek XIII comes out.

Actually, we might have seen them again had Nick Meyer not insisted on making every single aspect of Starfleet resemble an antiquated sea navy from the 1700's.

I always thought those looked more like a spacesuit undergarments, but the other guy in sickbay was also wearing them, so it isn't like they just pulled Spock put of the thruster suit. I suppose they could play essentially the same role and help manage body heat.

I read that the cast hated them because they were so uncomfortable.

That's true. The cast didn't like the uniforms because they itched and because they created an uncomfortable problem for male cast members. However, there's no reason why they couldn't have come up with a modified uniform without those issues.

I was of the impression that western navies of the 1700s barely had what we would recognize as naval uniforms, as in, particular outfits everyone aboard ship would be likely to be able to wear.

First reaction is it reminds me of Steve Zodiac's wardrobe in Fireball XL5.

Actually, it covered BOTH functions in the film. While there are others wearing the same type of garb in Sickbay (two other patients can be seen in them) I think Spock's is also clearly used under his thruster suit which makes the tubes more logical:

British and French naval officer's uniforms were thoroughly regulated by 1750, and the Continental and US navies from their inception. But enlisted naval uniforms were more of a late 1800s thing.
