Have a couple of questions for you regarding the first 5 F2P uniforms you've listed above. My first question is this - within the ST universe, on what sort of officer or section or what occasions or reasons do you envisage those uniforms being worn?
My second question is what inspired you to go with the Star Trek Generations combadge instead of the 25th century version? Was the Generations version actually used in the F2P trailer?
Thanks for looking at those questions!
It seems to me that white is usually added to a uniform during more diplomatic missions, so I would envision the first set being worn for more peaceful exploration type missions. The Sierra 2 variants I would envision as being worn as a simple variant available to any crew that wears the Sierra 2 uniforms.
As the F2P 1 variants sort of look like an intermediate between the DS9 uniforms and the Destiny uniforms, I decided to use the last used badge on the DS9 uniforms. The AGT badge would work just as well and I would assume that depending on the captain some crews would wear that instead.
I'm glad you like them and I hope this answers your questions satisfactorily.
More to come.
