    IMHO Beyond shouldn't be grouped together with '09/ID for reasons I have explained before. (i.e. Beyond's vastly superior uniforms. Compare this to this.)

    Also, I wanted cast a vote for the FC/INS/NEM uniforms but there was no option for them.

    Very hard call. Jumpsuits are inherently sexy, but ENT's jumpsuits look like something worn by janitors rather than pilots. I'd say it's a tossup between Beyond's interpretation of ENT-era uniforms and Discoball's uniforms. I voted Discovery because you didn't include the latter as a selectable option and honestly I think DSC's uniforms are slightly better-looking.

    1) I voted for the TOS uniform because nothing beats the classic.
    2) As someone who spent 26 years wearing a uniform, I think the most practical / most comfortable is probably the DS9 / VOY and/or late DS9 / TNG-films uniform. Worst would be any one-piece jumpsuit. I know fliers who swear by their flight suits for comfort, but they look baggy as all get-out, and I think it'd be a pain to have to strip down just to use the restroom.
    3) This very subject ran for six pages on Trek-BBS just last year March-Sept 2016.

    I forgot all about the Franklin/post-ENT era uniforms.

    They make a good impression.

    Enterprise for practicality.
    TOS for simplicity.
    Reboot for solid updating.

    The black Earthside officer uniforms from Star Trek + Into Darkness as worn by Pike, Spock and Thomas Harewood. The smartest Trek uniforms ever.

    I've gone for TOS movies and TNG movies.

    Although the monster maroons are pretty impractical, I view them as an officer's formal outfit, a little overused perhaps.

    But what I really love are all the variations for different tasks and roles across movies 2-6(7). A warm field jacket in TWOK, the enlisted crew outfits (altered and dyed TMP ones), the engineering suits, medical scrubs, engineers vest, captains vest (7), field outfits (5). So while not every outfit was the best, you really get the feeling of a world, a starship with lots of things going on and prepared for anything.

    TNG movies were a better budget version of DS9/VOY really. I would have actually preferred it if they had kept the coloured shoulders, but with increased production quality and detailing as overall they are too dark. Loved the captains vest, and would have loved to have seen some more variations.

    This is ridiculous, why can't I vote for the Disco Suits!?! :hugegrin:

    Okay I have to say I'm not a fan of the 'monster marroons'! But I agree that there is some nice variety throughout at least.

    I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I love women's TOS era uniforms but not quite so much the men's. I think that Abrams era does a good job of updating the men's though, they look really nice.

    But for classy-looking chic Starfleet look, I think that Next Gen did it best. I love that picture with Troi in uniform! If only they hadn't done her up in that ridiculous purple onesie most of the time.

    I don't dislike the early DS9/Voyager uniforms but I just think they look very..unsophisticated. Too baggy. They look the most like pyjamas to me. Though I do enjoy the colour combinations on them.

    I don't dislike the Enterprise uniforms, though they are a bit janitorial. As with Troi, I wish T'Pol got to wear them instead of the very dated looking catsuits...When we see her wearing them, she looks way better in my humble opinion (The only catsuit I ever really like in Star Trek is Seven of Nine's starry blue one!).

    I actually think Discovery is doing the perfect update of the Enterprise uniforms. It's inspired by that look - but not janitorial, actually smart and classy looking.

    I feel like I'd be comfortable in the DS9/Voy uniforms at home in the couch with a cuppa and a good book.

    I like the late DS9 uniforms on the women...but the mens' ones are still too baggy, and the grey shoulders are too big on them too.

    This is also as good a place as any to point out that nobody ever looked as good in any Starfleet uniform as Kira Nerys did in hers during the final arc.

    You forgot the "All Good Things " uniforms. I am currently using those outfits on Star Trek Online and loving it. For me, the All Good Things uniforms are in my top 5 uniforms.

    Thinking back on it, I maybe should've included the future 24th centrury uniforms. They do appear in AGT, The Visitor, and Endgame. I my mind, I put them in the same place as the Yesterday's Enterprise outfits. One offs that, don't represent the uniform of a series as a whole.

    My next poll shall be more inclusive.

    What about the super tight Jammies from the first two seasons of TNG??

    Okay kidding.

    I liked the season three TNG look and the DS9 ones were good too.

    I like the early DS9/VOY uniforms and that's probably what I would wanna wear. But honestly I think all of them look good, with maybe the exception of the 09/ID uniforms with the repeating delta thing. They did that with Superman too and I just don't get it. Anyway, love ENT because they're like cool flight suits, love TOS because it's a bona fide classic. I even love the TMP uniforms, particularly Kirk's admiral uniform. TNG looks good but not my first choice. And those Beyond uniforms! I love collars!

    The TNG movies and late DS9 uniforms are kinda cool but they look like they'd be way too warm and uncomfortable.

    Yeah. I had the same problem in both "Man of Steel" "BvS" and the "Amazing Spider-Man" movies. I practically cheered in the theater when Beyond's costumes got rid of the Delta texture.

    Textured fabric does not equal realism, Hollywood.
