    And all the posters used Serpentine for the "Star Trek" wordmark. That's what I would probably use for Picard.

    Admiral Picard's uniform has been revealed on the cover of IDW Countdown to Picard #3, and the actual costume is going to be shown at Destination Star Trek.

    Interesting. I like the uniform. But how'd he get up to four stars so fast?

    He must've known someone who knew someone, who bailed on him when it all went south.

    Starfleet is not what you know, but who you know.

    Janeway has the same issue with her rank in Nemesis. Wait, what if we are interpreting Admiral ranks wrong. Rear Admiral is 4 pips plus a box, promotion removes a pip, so Ross is a Vice Admiral with 3 pips and a box. Admiral is 2 pips plus box, and Fleet Admiral is one pip in a box. We've never seen the 2 and one pip version, which makes sense because they would be much more rare.

    I think this might be a possibility. There's also the idea that the pips are split up between the two sides. Going from Captain to Rear Admiral is like going from four pips (on one side) to six pips (between the two sides). The number of pips never decreases, this way.

    If Picard was an Admiral from 2381 to 2386, I could see him getting at least one promotion during that time. "We'll start you off at this rank and if you did good, we'll make you this rank!" Four promotions in five years is far-fetched. But two sounds reasonable (the original promotion to the Admirality and then getting moved up a notch).

    It looks like a 24th Century Admiral Uniform. Read into that what you will. ;)

    It fits. It looks like a version of what an Admiral Uniform would've looked like if they'd had one in the DS9/VOY style, but updated. Which fits the design aesthetic of PIC Starfleet. The DS9/VOY-ish style is a step back from the FC/late-DS9 wartime style, but still looks post-TNG. They want to hearken back but they don't want to hearken all the way back.

    This is probably the Uniform Patrick meant he was wearing in a flashback, not the TNG uniform in the Data dream.

    Or this could be for the Short Trek.

    Oh, I like the split pips idea, it does explain why they wear a pair. Upon further research we do see several Admirals with 2 pips. This could be Rear admiral lower half, under the split system. Under my system it would be Full Admiral, which doesn't work for people like Admiral Pressman, he's clearly supposed to be a relatively recent promotion. You would add 2 pips upon promotion to keep things symmetrical.

    I think they will be one and the same, that Patrick was referring to the Short Trek.

    The TNG uniform on display looks like it has less depth to the black shoulders than the one Picard was wearing in the trailers, more like what was seen in TNG.

    I guess that comic cover pretty much confirms that the rescue armada incident that caused Admiral Picard to retire had to do with Romulus (most likely an evacuation.)

    I like the admiral's uniform, it's actually a bit more interesting looking than the duty uniforms we see in the trailer.

    Still don't get why it would be unauthorized. Starfleet really didn't feel like helping Romulans at all?
