I found a thread here weeks ago in which a Lead STO gfx dev assured us that all the admiral rank insignia uniform textures had been fixed and would be pushed out with the next patch.
I have waited patiently for weeks, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is incensed to find my RA5 still looking like THIS.
I feel I must remind Cryptic that this is a role-playing game. 'Cosmetic' is not synonymous with 'Unimportant'. Furthermore, Trek is different things to different people. For some, it's TOS, while for others TNG is the only 'true' Trek', and so forth. Uniforms tap into that 'series loyalty'. I think you fully understand where this is going.
Please fix the _______ TNG admiral rank insignia already, like we were told you had weeks ago. It's an immersion-breaker and RolePlay-killer when one's avatar is stuck with such a retarded-looking flaw.
Fixed an issue where the Tribble Of Borg was unable to be claimed again from the C-Store if it had been discarded

Clarified the /Stuck UI which would previously lead users into an an infinite UI loop with the /killme command
Stacked Item counts will now display appropriately in the exchange
Fixed typos in the description of the Tribble of Borg item
Well, the TNG series uniform, as of what I assume is the first March 27 patch, now shows a single admiral pip on the uniform collar, instead of a big gray plastic missing texture. Thank you!!!
Unfortunately, the problem with TNG Film and DS9 variants remains, and is the result of the neck/collar geometry having a much wider base than the TNG series collar. The result is, sadly, a rank insignia layer that must be increased in size (with the avatar's physical neck size slider) until the person's neck is disproportionately wider than their head, just for the admiral rank pip to show partially. This may be true only for female avatars.
And a new bug seems to have appeared. I can't change uniforms using the right-click-my-portrait method, nor using the tailor's Wear command. Nothing happens when you click the button.
edit 3/27: And after a bout with the "retrieving list of characters" bug, I have managed to log back into the game, and now the "change uniform" options are working correctly, so that might have been an isolated case...
Anyway, time to knock wood (if I can find any) and dive back into it.
