Does anyone here like the uniforms from the future in all good things?
Thought they was ok but again no pockets.
Actually, it didn't occur to me until after I had made the poll that I forgot about the future uniform seen in "All Good Things..." and "The Visitor". Personally, this one ties with ST: TMP for my least favorite uniform.

And since I only commented on the black/gray unis in my first post, I'd like to say that a close second would be the Early DS9/Voyager/Generations uni. It looked very practical as a duty uniform, and that much black I thought was a good change from the revised TNG ones (tho I did like those). The colored shoulders I liked, as well as the pips on the undershirt (which was retained when the undershirt became branch color in the black/gray, whee).

After those, I'd have to say the revised TNG uni. When season 3 came around, it was a VERY welcome change, and I still like them as a good uniform and not just by virtue of being better than the S1-2 uni. The collar and looseness of it made it much more respectable looking I think I share the opinion that Picard's gray uniform with his red jacket that went over it to be really cool. I remember watching "Darmok" and really liking it.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I voted for the ST 2-6 uniforms. That said, I really liked the 29th century uniforms. I just hated the combadge.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I went with the FC/Late DS9 ones, I think they look excellent. Close second is the late TNG era ones, they are a bit colourful, but still sleek and stylish.

I was always partial to TWOK and beyond movie era uniforms. Next would have to be the jumpsuits from Enterprise, they seem to be perfect for the era.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I've got to go with the classic TOS uniforms. They are just so iconic, and still look pretty sleek today if you ask me.

Honestly, I like all the Trek uniforms, with some slight reservations, such as the scant. I also never cared for the enterprise uniforms, but that's just part of my hate towards the whole concept and series.

I really think the TMP captain's uniform is sweet.

Re: What is your favorite Star Trek uniform?

I voted for the TNG season 3-7 uniform. I like the simpler, bright color scheme.

To me, there has never been a completely perfect uniform set. TOS uniforms may have been relatively simplistic, but there were a surprising number of variants/styles. I like the realistic concept behind having the many variants of the TMP uniforms, but not most of their design qualities. I like the 'monster maroon' jackets of TWOK-TUC but not as a uniform for everyone - more like a class A uniform that is only worn maybe half of the time. I like the DS9/VGR coveralls (and their FC reincarnations) but they felt more like a class B or class C uniform that was more relaxed and shouldn't be used without a more 'dressy' counterpart.

They were the duty uniform, and both had formal dress uniform counterparts. The Early DS9/Voyager/Generations had the same dress uniform as the revised TNG uni as worn by Jadzia here:


While the black/gray FC and beyond uni had this for the dress uniform:


Just to note that they did indeed have more dressy counterparts.

Late DS9 ones. They make people look thin.

I remembered the dress uniforms, and I do appreciate the screencaps (and perhaps I should have been more clear) but I still feel like the jumpsuit was too dress-down to be the next uniform down from the dress uniform, if that makes sense.
