I guess it is one of those things that most if not all of us have been fans of star trek for many years..why would we then create such a silly non canon uniform?
The later TNG movies show dress uniforms that are white with departmental color pinstriping/piping. Could be that's what some folks are going for.
My own toon's uniform
because the early movie era is my nostalgia sweet spot, and my char is sci, so I tried to design a uniform that felt like it was in the same family as the various background engie/sci/starbase uniforms seen from TMP to ST-VI. So more off-white and earth tone than actual white, but still. I'm basically assuming/RPing a fleet meta equivalent of the red/gold/blue shipboard division system: the "hero" crews seen in the shows wear the fleet meta equivalent of a red duty uniform, because they're front line multitaskers who handle most of the contact work, while support/logistics division ships have their own uniform, and so on with sci division ships.
My away team boffs get
of my toon's off-white uniform, and my shipboard boffs get a derivation of the TNG two-tone pattern (
). Again, it's kind of a different role/different uniform idea, but with a sort of white collar/blue collar division: folks who's job involves getting their hands dirty get utility uniforms, while folks who operate consoles and viewscreens get the more minimalist & dressy TV-style uniforms. Although My toon should wear the dressy type in theory, I created a sort of intermediate uniform for her instead because she she goes on away missions all the time.
A lot of it on my part isn't so much trying to make my character's uniform distinctive as it is RPing what I'd like to imagine as the standard uniform(s), since I don't like the Cryptic default/official versions.
