    The point obviously is to have De Lancie reprise his role, otherwise, they could have hired a young lookalike and with a few CGI tweaks made it look like Q had remained unchanged.

    Knowing them, it would involve a few times where they switch to something wildly different from the Monster Maroons then back again, but to actually an earlier version, like the one with the crewneck undershirt Troi's dad wore.

    You just made me realize, I don't think we actually saw anyone from the Stargazer wearing the monster maroons. The closest we get is the holographic recording of Jack Crusher wearing one in Family, though there's wiggle room in that we don't know where he was at when he recorded that. So if we were to see the ship during monster maroon era but the crew were wearing a different uniform, that isn't technically violating canon at all.

    I forgot they were wearing the TNG S1 unis in Picard's flashback. I'm sure some novel or comic or something on the Stargazer had those WoK costumes.

    Lower Decks has skewered Trek's fetish for uniform changes (Mariner went from wearing a LD uniform to a DS9/FC uniform during a flashback sequence).

    Oh, yes, plenty of novels have featured the Stargazer crew wearing monster maroons, among them Reunion, Requiem and The First Virtue. The Valiant most likely used the monster maroons, though that's not completely clear.

    The main Trek association that Paradise Lost brings to mind for me is Khan...he alluded to it in "Space Seed," and had copies of it on Ceti Alpha V.

    The original idea was that the black uniform was station uniform and that only changed during Voyager

    To think Khan only had a handful of books to read for fifteen years and no other distractions, although he spent a great deal of time trying to teach fetch to his pet earwig.:D

    Must have made lots of babies too cause his new crew was too young to be the Botany Bay crew.

    He also clearly spent a tremendous amount of time working and waxing his chest

    Although living on this hellhole of a planet aged him prematurely it had the reverse effect on his crew...One mutant's rapid aging planet is another mutant's fountain of youth.:lol:

    That always bugged me about the film, in the original Space Seed episode which introduced Khan and his crew, they went out of their way to establish by look (and by name) the genetically ideal group would be a diverse multi-ethnic crew, in look and names; Singh, Joaquin, Rodriguez , Ling, etc.
    Scotty upon first seeing them, even notes how mixed the still dormant crew are.

    Then jump ahead several years suddenly they're all changed to Nordic Sven looking types.
    Like the 60s show was more progressive forward thinking in their vision.
    And later gen defaulted back to the Idealized nords cliche.

    That's not new, Montalban always stayed pretty fit.
    Don't know what kind of crazy morning space-tai-chi this is?

    But yeah there probably wasn't allot to do on Ceti Alpha other than workout and procreate, which is pretty much what they went there to do!:lol:

    That's Hollywood for you, first, they whitewash Kahn's team and then Khan himself!!! Maybe in a couple of decades, they'll make a movie with a white Sisko!!!

    Don't be silly. We're never getting a movie with Sisko.
