    In some lighting the uniform looks dark purple'ish, on others dark blue.

    Very nice! Does this mark the first time that a woman is the chief costume designer on a Star Trek show? Nice to get confirmation on the theory that the uniforms were intended as a natural progression from the Enterprise jumpsuits.

    show yes, but deborah everton had a hand in redesigning the starfleet uniforms for first contact, which obviously impacted DS9 and voyager. though robert blackman always gets credit for that iteration.
    but meh UsS kelvin uniformz over here

    Very interesting, I didn't know that. Always thought Blackman designed them.

    That's surprises me I thought everyone understood that the design came from first contact.

    And TNG 's 2nd season had a female costume designer, I think (on phone to lazy to check) Durinda Dice Wood, I think.

    It is a bit weird to care about natural progression from uniform that existed a century ago though.

    In any case, has there been any pics of the long-sleeved away team uniform without the protective vest? I'd really like to see how that looks.

    Yeah looks to be a flight suit, which is how we see it.

    The concept art was a lot better (if a bit Stormtrooper-y) than the finished result.
