# 1 Standard Starfleet Uniforms
09-12-2012, 04:06 PM
Star Trek online takes place in the year 2409 and ST:VOY Endgame takes place in 2404 so don't you think we should use the Endgame/All good things uniforms as standard as it would be more appropriete to the time STO is set in?

On the other hand, as far as I can tell, that uniform only seems to show up in potential future timelines that always seem to get wiped out. Every time I see that uniform, I find myself thinking, "Aha. Parallel Universe time."

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!

I think I would stop playing the game if my Fed characters were forced to wear the All Good Things uniform.

The suggestion doesn't prevent YOU from wearing whatever uniforms you want. The suggestion is that the DEFAULT uniform style (on all NPCs) should be the AGT/Endgame style uniform. And not the Cryptic "maintenance jumpsuit style".

And I agree. Being that it's pretty much the same time period as Endgame, it should definitely have been the default style. Bad enough really, to have every uniform from every time period in the game, but worse to have the NPCs running around in uniforms which -isn't- canon for the time period.

That's a matter of personal opinion. Personally, I think they look alot better than the TNG "early season" uniforms, and a HUMONGOUS improvement over the Male Skant version.

The short answer is 'no' because I really hate that uniform design. I prefer cryptic's variants over it any day of the week.

The longer answer is that those episodes took place in timelines that became invalidated due to the acts of the various characters (Picard was time hopping thanks to Q, Adm. Janeway went back in time purposefully to change the timeline, Jake Sisko killed himself to prevent his dad from becoming permanently stuck in subspace or whatever was happening to him in that episode). So it's not anymore valid than choosing some other uniform.

I kinda wish they'd taken a few cues from it for stock uniforms.

I think AGT uniforms were designed to make actors look MUCH older. In fact, if not, I'd be shocked. The hiked up pants. The more sloping look of the shoulders.

It's the opposite of what DS9 and First Contact uniforms did, which was to slim the actors torso and broaden their shoulder.

I think what should have been kept, however, are the chest fastener clasp with its "<"-cut, the collarbone pips (which they did keep) and the combadge (which they made C-Store/vet). I think a big mistake with the default in game uniforms was too much detail, too many colors, and too leathery looking.

I wouldn't be averse to Admirals wearing Janeway's uniform because it has mods in its cut designed to make her look LESS old and to the extent it ages an actor, well... I want NPC Admirals to look old.


If they'd made the AGT combadge the default, I think people would be fine with that. Almost everyone I know who has it uses it on all uniforms.

What about the Academy uniform? It's like a progression of the AGT uniform, like what the DS9/First Contact is to the Voyager one. I think it looks pretty good and very Trekish for the Federation.

Best combadge in the game actually imo. I bought the AGT uniform partly for the comm badge, that was back in the day though before I discovered the KDF.
