    First Contact onward at least has the single band around the cuff with the division color. That's kind of the best of both worlds when combined with the pips.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I don't care that much about humanity's future happiness with nakedness. But you've got to work with these guys.
    Imagine you are sitting in navigation and Decker sneaks up behind you(he just blends into the background beige) and you just turn around and you're literally face to face with his lack of underwear.
    Bad enough if it was the handsome Decker but what if it was some old ugly Admiral. No. No. No

    Spock wore the Vulcan version of tighty whiteys in The Quest for Whales. Why couldn't he have worn them under the TMP jumper? Why? Why, I say, why? ;)

    KIRK: I'm taking over the center seat, Will.
    DECKER: You're what?
    KIRK: I'm replacing you as Captain of the Enterprise. You'll stay on as Executive Officer. Temporary grade reduction to Commando....Commander, I mean Commander.

    Maybe it was the nature of the new uniforms that prompted the Oath of Celibacy...

    What happens if this still goes on during TNG? Can you imagine being the young Ensign looking forward to your first shift at the Ent-D helm, only to have to avoid Riker's junk hanging next to your face everytime he props his leg on your console?!

    And then there is the Riker Maneuver when ever he sits down.

    Plus it doesn't help that Data puts everyone else to shame!

    Well, of course it still goes on during the TNG era. Why do you suppose it is that Riker does that move so often to people like Data and Ensign Gates, hmm? ;)

    If you also have the gray theme turned on for this forum there are support organizations who can help you. Good luck with your twelve-step program.

    Absolutely. And since we have absolutely no idea what humans of the real 23rd century will be into, clothing-wise, all we have to go on is what we like right now.

    :guffaw: :guffaw:

    As for the "everyone walks around naked" thing: Pass. That may have worked with Gene Roddenberry's "new humans" thing, but not Starfleet. It would just look silly.

    New Humans might get away with being naked all the time because of that New Age-ish groupmind philosophy that they're into, but Starfleet officers are supposed to look professional at all times.

    And for all they know, they might run into aliens who react with shock and horror at nakedness. 'Course, aliens could also do this with people wearing clothes, but I'm sure that's much less likely. You don't see many naked alien space fleets, do you? ;)

    That's exactly the flippant attitude that got us into the three Nuditarian Wars.

    The Ferengi reaction to seeing "clothed females" springs to mind. ;)

    And there was the Xindi fish people.

    And were the Xindi insect people clothed?

    This would take a ton of work, but I would love to see a TMP test scene with the TWOK+ uniforms grafted onto the cast. Any takers?

    Actually, we've seen the TWOK costumes for so many movies, I would prefer the reverse. :) TMP uniforms in TWOK.

    I remember jackets at the end of the movie that went over the uniforms that looked to be directly for the cage.

    To me, any time there is a Time Travel episode, those should have been for the far future, with ST II uniforms coming after TNG, were I to adjust the timeline of uniforms.

    The TNG Nemesis movie uniforms are the worst, to me.

    I don't think I want to see anyone over the age of 40 in those TMP outfits.
