This is basically how some devs get their console games looking so good on 5 year old hardware like the 360: render fewer pixels but make em as pretty as possible.

haha, Thats what i do, play STO on a 40" 1080p tv, but with the full res and everything maxed.
Modern hardware is sooo nice

Those academy uniforms are somewhat like some of the ones seen in Star Trek 6. except for the shoulders. they had some full length uniforms as well. Close to the costumes I currently wear for conventions! Nice Work!

You probably don't want to say that to a Klingon's face...

Maybe thats just klingo rite of initiation is they have to wear a dress while they train and fight animals and stuff lol. This has to be a dark, hidden secret of Klingon culture. Maybe this is the root of their warrior temperament and their need to kill anyone who insults their honor. I'm sorry let player I didnt realize you had to go through this kind of abuse. I understand why youre so angry all the time now lol. JK

Honestly though what's up with the federation man dress? What do you guys think they were thinking? Some men would be thinking "well I know the pants uniform is the standard male look but i think im going to opt out for the alternate male uniform..."

It was the 80s, the height of the Progressive explosion. Being a manly-man was way out, and in true Trek style, they took a current trend and magnified it 10 fold to show how "enlightened" we'll be some day.

In short, women wearing pants was already so commonplace, they needed to step it up to illustrate just how progressive we would be in the future

The Klingon thing isn't a dress or skirt though, its a battle tabard - Knights wore such a thing quite often, made from banded leather or chain or scale armor

If anything, SKIRTS are the mark of a warrior culture.

How soon can we expect the armor and the academy. Also will we be able to mix and match the armor with non academy pieces.

I gotta say I'm a fan of these Klingon academy uniforms. They have a bit of a "medieval" feel to them, almost as if the Klingons are attempting to instill a sense of tradition and having their up and coming warriors get to know their roots.

There going to be any Nauscican, Lethean, and Orion specific uniform options for the academy?
