    I thought that the TOS pants had pockets at the waistband - basically coin pockets (if the Federation used money that is...:whistle:).

    Are we sure those are uniform pants? (Can you see flared cuffs as he chases dudes?) Maybe they're exercise pants.

    The Enterprise uniforms were the most practical and functional uniforms in any Trek franchise. It was ridiculous that the ever logical and practical Vulcans didn't either (a) already have similar uniforms in use for their VDF personnel, or (b) adopt the human model quickly.

    I had no idea.

    Mystery solved. TOS uniforms HAD pockets. However small.

    Ditto.

    Someone recently linked to an article that attested that the TOS uniform pants did have pockets, with the opening very high up near the waist. Sorry, I can't remember who, what thread, or exactly when, nor could I personally attest to the veracity of the claim. Maybe someone can fess up or snitch. :)

    The HD Sulu pics are fantastic, though!

    Size doesn’t matter.

    I looked back at these and you know what the ship at bottom right, I don't mind that one.

    The top row look like Trek versions of The Liberator

    I agree. I’d like to see the Independence some day. If only there was some callback-heavy, obscurely referential version of Trek out there….

    The pants look tucked in but it appears to be the normal boots so I tend to think he is trying to rock a d'Artagnan vibe.

    That would explain Spock calling him so. "Take D'Artagnan to sickbay." He said.

    In Star Trek everyone is equal because NO ONE has pockets.

    - The Section 31 of Sloane is necessary and good. Let's just forget about every other Section 31 ever to make it to the screen.
    - Voyager never should have made it back to the Alpha Quadrant.
    - There is a GREAT Star Trek movie hiding within Star Trek Nemesis that could be fixed with significant editing.
    - Nearly every canon issue about Discovery Season 1 could be fixed by setting it in the 2430s (just cut all Sarek / prequel references out of it). Obviously with Pike ans Season 2, that becomes impossible.

    Discovery is fine as it is. No need to change a thing.

    Exactly, it's the fans that make it a problem
