    Y'know, there comes a point when uniforms stop being, well, uniform. I'm pretty sure sticking the whole cast in either different colours or different clothes qualifies!

    Yeah, but you have to reflect the fact that this is a TV show where there were only seven regulars who wore uniforms as standard. To get more than three - or four at a push - colours in, you have to go down the TWoK route and reduce the division colours to a small detail, or else it looks chaotic to the average viewer. Imagine the TWoK uniforms in division colours rather than maroon.

    [Also, there would be the extra cost of making uniforms for extras and guest stars to account for...]

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I said over in this thread, in the context of TOS.

    Already posted this in another thread (the Photoshop one?) but here's some of the cast in Yamato 2199 colors (or as close as I could get it in Worf's case).

    Kirk is sticking out so much with that color, he might as well run around with a shoot me sign. No wonder redshirts ended up dying left and right. They were actual decoys.
