    His hair wasn't really black in the first one, more of a brown.

    I would pay more attention to the sleeve stripes than the epaulettes, because they could mean something different (or a costuming error on Chekov's costume).

    I laughed, but the truth is that my country is becoming more like that every day.

    Those uniforms stink, look more like Starship Troopers. Shouldn't they have just used a broken stripe for Ensign? Bit silly, wonder if they have an non-com ranks would have thought the reboot could use a new system

    1) Section 31 is a black Ops terrorist group not space marines.

    2) Going back to exploration doesn't necessarily mean you could have space marines, I mean intrepid explorers need someone to guard them from anything hostile they might run into, and this is Star Trek we are talking about that seems to happen a lot.

    Besides just because your an explorer doesn't mean you can't be a solider too, just ask Kirk.

    IIRC - a single broken stripe was Lt Junior Grade. At least one did appear in TOS that I can recall.

    And yeah, I'm not a big fan of these new uniforms either. They look like they're supposed to be derived from the dress gray cadet uniforms from VMI or the Citadel, but these guys aren't cadets any more. :shrug:

    Their not cadet uniforms, those are red. They look like the uniforms the instructors, Spock, and Pike where wearing in Trek XI.

    I'm guessing that those are dress uniforms. The hats are kind of weird looking...must be the angle of the photo.

    No, the hats are just very Russian/Soviet military in style.

    A broken stripe was used in TMP for ensign ranks, there either was no Lt jg or they used the same rank as Lts.

    The epaulettes might be one row for junior officers and two rows for senior?
    Also they may not be the same.
