I like Voyager's the best (there's something I don't say). Second favourite TOS's. Least favourite are the grey ones from the TNG movies and later seasons of Deep Space Nine, I think they look horrible.

Definitely the TMP uniform. Sweetest uniform ever.
Yep...they looked like aliens in a bad Japanese sci-fi flick.

Good times.

Heh.

LOL @ the one vote for early TNG uniform.


Yeah... they were pretty horrible.
That's embarrassing. I didn't vote for it, but it's actually my second favourite. I would have voted for it if I didn't like the early DS9 uniforms so much.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

To me, nothing says "Star Trek" like the the original series uniforms. If I were in space, that's what I'd wear! I'm not so keen on the DS9 and First Contact styles - too much black for me. Bright colours are what Star Trek's all about!

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

My favorite were the late DS9 uniforms, in part because they were used for the shortest time (and I haven't rewatched those episodes too much) but they did seem the most dramatic, a good reflection of the war and shades of gray that were occurring in those episodes (which in a way reflect the conclusion of the world TNG and ST set up).

I voted for Movies 2-6.

But I also love the duty uniforms on ST XI - and I really love the Kelvin uniforms.

Honorable mention to Enterprise - they looked like they were very practical.

After some consideration I've changed my choices...

Favorite uniforms: Enterprise

Runner up: The monster-maroons from ST II through VII.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I voted for the movie "monster maroons," but just watched TSFS last night and they seem bulky/complicated. The simplicity of TOS: untucked sweatshirt basically, makes good sense.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

My problem with the TOS uniforms is that they have too much simplicity. Looks like a buncha guys just went to a store and bought matching long-sleeve shirts and then reported for starship duty. All the others (including the STXI ones-that's one of the things I liked about the movie) excluding perhaps the ridiculous space pajamas of TMP actually look like uniforms.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I never knew they'd be able to take the old series uniforms, tweak them a bit, and then reintroduce them in a new way for the 2009 flick. The last ones are really superbly done.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I prefer the DS9 uniforms -- first the FC uniforms, followed by the black suits with colored shoulders Voyager/early DS9 look. Of course, I'd stick the new movie uniforms in the middle.

I gotta say, I really love the new 2009 Star Trek uniforms. But unless I'm blind, that's not one of the poll options...

TOS female uniform, minis and go-go boots. One thing the nu-movie got right was the fabric on the dresses and the guys shirts, wonderful.
