Of course starfleet is a military. They explore yes, but in times of war Starfleet is most certainly the military. It is the same as any Navy today, yes you serve about military vessels, but when a war is not occuring you do other tasks. I served at sea for several years, not everything as combat related. If starfleet was not military, the only other options were that they were privateers or mercenaries...and considering money had little appeal to Federation peoples...it had to be military.

I agree the uniforms look far more true to the true feeling of Star Trek. They blend the explorer and the authority of rank. They look like they command respect.
