A bit of a shame, really. Guess I'll just have to stick with my Sierra Ones for now.
I don't quite understand where the problem lies.
Data is Captain of the Enterprise -E...
Romulus is destroyed...
In my opinion this means the events
(whatever happens in Countdown)
do in fact occur previously to STO and so the countdown uniforms have a good chance to exist in STOs timeline.
I must emphasize that i really like these uniforms, i would give all Sierra and Antares uniforms for the Countdown uniform in exchange.
Personally i use Sierra 3 uniform as a substitute for the countdown uni. If you give the lower part (the paralbe) the same color as the main unifrom, i think it look much better than Sierra 1, but that's just my personal preference.
The only thing that bothers me is the colored sleeve, of course it shares the same color as the collar... well done cryptic, lol.
