    I like the Discovery uniforms in the show as they are alot, but I do wish they had gone more like the photoshops above. Oh well.

    That looks so much better.

    That's the type of design thinking I want to see in this: a modern take on the retro designs.

    Even though @Beamer already beat me to it and did a much better job, here's my effort:

    Thanks for the compliment ^^
    If I had found this particular screencap, I'd totally have used it. I really wanted the guy sitting down as opposed to turning his head to the point where he's developing a serious neck condition. Resizing the head is the hardest thing to do when it comes to photo manipulation, so don't feel bad.

    Seriously though, this dude looks classy in just about anything.

    They might have desaturated the blue to a cool blue/gray and highlighted with departmental colors, which could be fully saturated and pair well. The problem with rich colors is that very few other colors can be paired with them. So they're forced to give everyone gold or silver which is not only too loud, but repetitive (much like my griping about it :biggrin:).

    I really hope they publish Fuller's team's original concepts at some point. I'd love to see what he envisioned. Like or hate his work, the costumes are phenomenal in all of the productions he ran.

    These three together might be good.
    1. Eliminate shoulder stripes
    2. Make the delta mesh and shoulder boards black
    3. Pants black
    4. Ribbed collar
    5 TOS Departmental colors for tops.
    6. With or without zipper. And,
    7. More traditional and visible rank insignia. Either Stripes or pips.

    Honestly, the shoulder-stripes are my favourite part of the new uniform:shrug:
    They look super 50s retro-scifi-y. Which is IMO perfect for a show made in the 60s. I would hate to loose them...

    That's probably why I don't like them. And metallic? Yikes. That's a little too 50s Space Ranger for me.

    Aliens are also metaphors for "otherness" and things different from normal experience. They teach tolerance because if you accept them, you can accept other humans of differing races, creeds and beliefs. Surprisingly, you missed this part of Star Trek...and also the point that there are 100s of aliens established in the federation as well as 100s of others in-universe that make humans a tiny minority.

    The fact that they are a different color and wear makeup and you can't accept them having character development says a lot about you.

    I think this is a pretty clean look. I should have used a different recoloring method though. Recoloring by altering hues doesn't give the best results.
    If I made another change, It'd probably be to take out the underarm mesh, and then it'd pretty much be a t-shirt.

    That's a lot of ..... blue. He looks like a wonderful captain figure, but that's just a lot of blue. Looks rather sterile as well. Kinda like, kinda don't like. I guess I'll stick with not sure for now. Nothing like pre-series release photos and trailers to give you the absolutely wrong picture of what it will really be.

    So essentially we've just replaced something new with the TOS tops from the 60s and declared that we like it? :lol: we're nothing if not predictable.

    Well yeah, makes sense.
    "Lemme see. Yeah, yeah.... this new thing, I totally dig it. But, what if... just bare with me.... what if we alter this, change that and adjust here.... See, now it looks more like what we had and I can stay in my comfort zone instead of realising change is part of life."

    No, it actually says that they don't have much and that they're usually clumsily used "funny hat" characters. Repeating the tired fanboi can't about "otherness and acceptance" is superficial and doesn't make it so.

    They're used as a metaphor...... I thought that was obvious enough?

    Clumsily, and in an embarrassingly trite and evasive manner. See: "The Outcast" and that DS9 thing about Dad and her ex, among too many examples.

    This stuff was clever...in 1966.
