    The Late DS9 and First Contact uniforms are by far my favorite. They even had my favorite Dress Uniforms, the white and black ones. My second favorite is the STII-STVI ones. As for my LEAST favorite? TMP... although, the early TNG ones aren't far off...

    While I'm fond of the TOS uniforms -- from Man Trap on -- and also like the 2009 movie uniforms, my favorite is the later season TNG uniforms. There's an elegance in their simplicity, and I've always preferred red as the command color.

    The modern grey 24th Century uniforms are the best!

    I also liked grey and white uniforms worn by the Voyager crew who were in that one alien race in the episode called "Drive".

    I also liked the recent white dress uniforms as seen in Insurrection, as well.

    And I did like the Original Series film red jackets with the flap in the front, too.

    And the Voyager style uniform with the grey underneath was pretty good, too.

    I always thought the 3d season TNG uniforms looked cool.

    It had a sleek, stylish look to it, along with how the rank pins were placed on the collar.

    If a fan were to wear one, you'd recognize it immediately.

    The FC uniform, hands down. Looks comfortable and functional enough, while still being very stylish ;)

    I liked the TWOK uniforms, they were a cool design, albeit incredibly uncomfortable for the wearer (hence why they ditched the bulky underjumper in later appearances of the uniform)

    I like the FC uniform, however it has an annoying habit of changing colour slightly in different lighting, for instance the uniform clearly has a gray top, yet in different lighting it appears navy blue and sometimes purple, also the FC uniform was the laziest effort on the costumers parts, fair enough its an awesome design, however it was just a modified version of the already existing uniform, with different fabric and colour scheme

    I think my favourite has to be the FC/late-DS9, in my opinion it looks like a more professional uniform but with the ability to be easy to move in and it doesn't look too heavy (the TWOK uniform looked smart, but far too difficult to actually do much in, and it looked like it would get so hot)

    I also like the fact that the colours of the uniform were toned down slightly.
    So yeah.... FC/late-DS9 for me

    The FC uniforms are the best. They managed to take the same premise as what had been used on the series and made them more militaristic... but not as much as the TWOK uniforms.

    Call me an old timer but I still prefer the old TOS uniforms. The had a military style edge to them and yet still seemed comfortable. (When not shrunken by the cleaners :p)

    My first runner up is the FC/Late DS9 jumpsuit. Very professional and yet still had a military style appearance.

    My Second runner up is TWOK uniforms. I still think they would've made decent dress uniforms but seemed to formal for regualr active duty.

    Pretty much my sentiments exactly. I really liked the whole 'NASA/submarine in space' look that Enterprise went for. And we finally got to see some common sense in the form of pockets :p

    Then again, I really like the FC era grey-on-black uniforms. They don't give the impression of Starfleet being as friendly as the TNG or DS9/VOY jumpsuits due to the lack of colour, but it looks good on screen.

    And I am so glad I'm not alone with disliking the future uniform we saw a handful of times. I don't know what it is I don't like, I just remember my heart sinking during Endgame when they dragged out that uniform again, but I can't put my finger on why.

    It is probably a very fun group; however, I am so glad our U.S. Marines are not that out of shape!:alienblush:

    I wonder why the poll doesn't include the unis from the Kelvin?

    EDIT: Oh, hang on. Yeah - "Other". I didn't mind the Kelvin unis - very retro...

    Not to mention that the DS9/FC uniforms could be stripped down for functionality as seen below:

    There were also the Starfleet uniforms used between the early DS9 uniforms with the colored shoulders and the above uniform..... when Jake Sisko ran off during a battle, got lost in a desert and stumbled onto a dying soldier wearing a completely different uniform (Nor the Battle to the Strong):

    The Captain's "Casual Jacket" always reminds me of a wetsuit, on Patrick Stewart especially it looks really restrictive

    My favorites are the white dress uniforms from First Contact/Insurrection. Incredibly good looking and incredibly dressy.

    ^ I never did like those unis. They look like Love Boat rejects.

    Another reason why I prefer the SFMC unis I linked to. They have that same style as ub FC/INS, but in black. Somehow black doesn't look as goofy. :lol:

    Then again, apparently I somehow need to "get a life", so what the hell do I know. :p
