Why dont we see TOS gear or gear from the new movie??
BECAUSE IT WOULD BE OVER 100 YEARS OUT OF DATE.
They pressed the constitution and several ships in between it and present because they were solid dependable designs that could be retrofitted with modern equipment. Any gear from that time would be like pressing civil war hand loaded guns into service to use in Afghanistan. They might be usable and would deffinatly kill just fine but they cant compare with modern body armor and automatic weapons. To modify gear from that era would require a complete rebuild to stand up to personal shields and armor and would no longer be the same weapon.

That aside it would be a nice skin affect to go along with the Tos uniforms but it would be strictly a costume option not actual gear.
