I've got to confess, some of the uniform variations I see in-game make little or no sense to me.

While it is true that some military types have probably had custom-tailored "uniforms" over the years, there should still be some common elements with "normal" uniforms.

The color variations are especially wild in many cases. (Why on earth is any shade of green even on the uniform palette?)

About all I can do is think to myself that different units/divisions/etc. might have different uniform standards, much like the differences between Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines. While Cryptic could have standardized those differences somehow, they leave it open for people to interpret it in any way they want to. I suppose that's not all bad, even though it's a bit hard to see some of these outfits and think "Starfleet".

To the point of the original post, it's mighty tempting to see the default uniform as the "official" one, and many of the NPC's appear in it. I do not see NPC's running around in any of the non-standard outfits (No TOS, ENT, TMP, TNG, etc)
