    It would be interesting from a historical point. There is almost a century between the Enterprise NX-01 and the NCC-1701. Filling in what happened, if done right, can be very entertaining.

    Yep.

    It took me a moment to realize those weren't Anston Mount and Rebecca Romejin, leaving me wondering what Nimoy was doing there.

    The bridge looks so good, but the uniforms look so bad. :/

    How about a Scotty show. It can cover his tour on the USS Hasselhof when he was a trickster and troublemaker, before he got his act together on the Enterprise.

    Anything fun about that concept was finished after ENT came out and set the past in stone = - the original fun, IMO, about a prequel would have been to bridge it backwards to some real atomic age, 50s and early 60s style aesthetics and tech, that truly looked pre-TOS, but with modern filming dynamics, like any good period piece. Retro doesn't have to look cheap.

    The oddly mis-lined up collars throws it all off for me. I could deal with the rest.

    Agree on the collars, but the 1940s spaceman shoulders are no good, either.

    I think the asymmetrical collars, bright colours and spaceman shoulders give the uniforms a cool retro-futuristic vibe.

    agreed on the collars. but there appears to be a variant in the new short treks trailer that does not have the collar or the asymmetrical zipper:

    Is that a good thing? I keep hearing how all the design updates were necessary because the show has to look modern and futuristic.

    If they’re going retro, give me 1960s retro, not Buster Crabbe retro.

    I wish that ultimately, the DSC uniforms end up being a dress overcoat rather like the WoK uniforms, with TOS uniforms underneath, and that a later retcon reveals that underneath the monster maroons, there were division tunics.

    Could you imagine wearing something with an "asymmetrical zipper"? It would throw my entire equilibrium off, like a cat with no tail.

    Aren't they just the away team uniforms minus the body armour?

    It's impossible, we are all know that Burnham takes 50-80 % of the screen time.

    No retcon needed, the turtlenecks under the monster maroons are already division colors. You just need to move the badge from the jacket to the shirt, which is an option not ruled out by what we see.

    Retcon? We see Kirk with his jacket off and a white turtle neck underneath. The division colors were pretty much part of that uniform from the word "Go."
