    Snipers are always grateful when they do that.

    Yep. During Viet Nam they instructed officers to remove their rank devices to keep from getting sniped. The practice may have started sooner - not 100% sure when - but it became common practice in Nam. Subdued insignia came out of that.

    i don’t think there are many chance of getting in a sniper’s scope while standing on the bridge of your ship.

    Sniper rifle from DS9 could work.

    so has identification technology. I hope they don’t rely on eyesight to identify a target when they could lock on their genome, katra or whatever!

    I still remember B'lanna's Skeletal Lock idea with the Transporter.

    ‪‪I had wondered the same thing, but ‪‪I finally saw another red uniform on Disco, aside from Saru and Michael, in last night’s episode, S04E02 Anomaly.

    At the moment when Tilly begins talking with Culber, from about 41:10-41:19 as Hugh exits a turbo lift, there is a Disco crew member wearing red, and who, from the ears, I believe appears to be Vulcan or Romulan.

    I know the new uniforms are a mixed bag, but I like them. Star Trek just doesn't feel "complete" without the color coded uniforms. It was the one weak spot I felt for "ENT" and I had for "DISCO" for a while. I like them. *Shrugs*

    The uniforms are fine. The badges and rank signifiers needs work.

    Yeah, it's hard to see the Starfleet delta on the new combadges. I wish the badges were just in the shape of the delta instead of having it engraved into the oval.

    I just wish the Oval was transparent and made of glass encasing the Delta.

    This is probably the smallest nitpick ever, but...what's with that gray stripe? What function does it have? What logical purpose does it serve? Everybody has it, so it's not like a division thing.

    I mean, the S3 uniforms also had the stripe, but it was the division color on an otherwise gray uniform. THAT made sense. This, as far as I can tell, doesn't. :confused:

    What function do the stripes on the New York Yankees' uniform serve?

    Admittedly, none, but that's different. That's entertainment.

    Design-wise it serves to break up a big block of color, so as to provide a little more visual interest in the overall look.

    I like the 32c unis, both gray and color-coded.
    Color-coded looks better, Imho, and I appreciate that Vance retained his "admiralty greys".
    Now, if the hem could be symmetrical...

    Tactical/security now wear operations gold, as evidenced by Lt. Commander Rhys. I wonder what Lieutenant Willa will be dressed in next time we see her?
