    To be fair these are merely just very well done costumes (not official), and the dress variants are not the same as the ones on the show unless they surprise us with a full color dress variant. As far as I can tell from what Nhan had on in "Brother" the TOS top is the same for both men and women, it's just that for the bottoms one can either wear the black trousers (Number One) or the black skirt/leggings (Nhan).

    Also found another neat photoshop and comparison done by reddit user Clark1984. Hopefully as I said before season 3 gets some color in their palette.

    Do you think the girls will show some leg? Might as well wear trousers otherwise.

    I don't foresee them removing the leggings from the skirt option. My guess is that it merely gives actors/actresses an option if they wish to wear one or the other for comfort. I mean Nhan is currently wearing a dress variant of the DSC uniform and she still has leggings on with that.

    I know. It’s very disappointing. Jadzia Dax wouldn’t be impressed. :)

    Well Rick Berman had an affinity for skin. However I don't think it suits the current taste of productions and those running them. After all this isn't the 90's anymore or for that matter the 60's either haha.

    But we know by the 2260’s it was in fashion again. Beehives as well.

    I like the leggins version.
    Makes it look practical and still a bit sexy in a not creepy way.
    Would also work for males much better than the Zap Brannigan version.

    Yeah, sorry, perhaps poor wording on my part. I knew that, meant in the sense that i didn't notice it the first time i saw that photoshopped picture plus a bit surprised the photoshopper went to the extra effort.

    My only problem with this image is that Detmer and Owo should be in gold, like Chekov and Sulu.

    Really, putting the pilot in with the "people who do stuff" category makes more sense than having them with the vague "command" category. Or on the other hand, if pilots and navigators are command, why not tactical?

    Owo is an Ops officer, so she should be in Red if Discovery ever adopts the TOS uniforms.

    Detmer is the one character in that image wearing the wrong Division color.

    The second pic looks like Disco done Kelvin style. If you took the walls and covered them up panels, you'd have a Neo-TOS look. It shows that the differences between DSC, the Kelvin Films, and TOS aren't as much as they've been made out to be.

    But I think the color palette of DSC fits the overall tone of the series better. I chalk the visual difference between Disco and Kelvin as being the same as the visual difference between TFF and TUC.
