# 782 Accolade badges
03-09-2012, 05:54 PM
How about special badges that are unlocked by accolades? I'm thinking specifically of STF accolades such as the Starfleet Cross or UFP Medal of Honor, but I'm sure there are other places that would be appropriate. This could be a simple way of giving us "service ribbons".

The same could be done for the Klingons by sash variants with special insignia on them for specific achievements.

Ideally, what I'd really want would be a separate "slot" for the special badges that's separate from the normal combadges. It's certainly within canon -- flag officers such as Admiral Cartwright wore service ribbons on their uniforms.

Not sure if it's been mentioned (TLDR)

http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Caitian and http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Caitian both talk about the caitians having hair, but there's no option in game. They look weird being 'bald'.. I realize that their supposed to have fur, but... no, they look weird.

please!! I'm not the only one that feels this way...

The word on this is that supposedly they're holding off on giving Caitians hair because they are developing new hair "tech" for everyone (similar to what you see in the Caitians' beards). That was a long time ago though..

I would also like to know what is going on with this hair tech.

Agreed, most definitely. However they should also be uniform options. Remember a TOS episode where Scotty was in dress uniform wearing a kilt? Also in the first and possibly second season of ST:TNG I seem to recall male crew members wearing a sort of dress or smock like duty uniform, sans pants. After all thru out most of human history pants were the exception. They only came in serious vogue as horse back riding became more common (and when was that last time most of us were on horseback?). Even in the early 20th century many babies up thru toddlers, both male and female, were dressed in baby dresses. Boys only got short pants once past the toddler stage and didn't get long pants until around 10 - 13. Historically skirts/kilts/kimonos/dresses were as common as male wear, if not more so, as pants were. That's one of a HUGE laundry list of things I hated about the recent BSG series. No imagination. We have an entire seperate evolution of humanity that took place on a different planet and they're wearin' suits and ties? Even today ties are the most useless, senseless piece of adornment I know of.

C'mon Devs! We need kilt/skirt/kimono options for male uniforms! heheheheh

While I agree with you main post. Pants are the exception not the rule in men's clothing historically. I have to point out that you are misunderstanding BSG. A big part of the naturalistic scifi idea is that just like you hear the people speaking in English instead of Caprican, you see them wearing and using items that look like what we wear and use and for the same reason. The shows creators were very clear on that. It was not a lack of imagination,, but a deliberate choice.

# 787 Federation Uniform Ideas
03-21-2012, 09:46 AM
This first one could actually apply to both FED and KDF. I'd like to see some additional Borg pieces for my Liberated Borg, mainly a male version of 7 of 9's hand "webbing". I’ve been having my Captain wear black gloves for the time being but it makes him look like he should be working for Section 31 or something. Even better (but would take more work) would be a range of hand implants. Maybe even bulky ones for the people who like that old school Borg look… Personally I prefer a more “human” look with hints of Borg

Examples-
“Webbing”-

“Star” hand Implant-

Bulky Borg Hand-

Now that we have some form of Environmental Suits I’d love to see The First Contact/VOY style suits… Ok you might have the “black” out the helmets so we can’t see our captain’s/crew’s faces but still would like it-

Finally, Fed uniforms for KDF officers that have been obtained through diplomacy! I’ve mentioned this last one in other threads before and I remember reading in one Engineering Report it was under Development… then nothing.
I’ve got a Gorn that I have had for absolutely aaaaaaaages that I use as my chief of Security/away team bodyguard, along with a recent Orion Female as a Jr. Engineer officer. But they don’t feel part of the crew!
I know their SUPPOSED to be like Kurn in TNG: Sins of a Farther-
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y26...cbc9e28065.jpg
But I actually want them to be part of the crew, like Worf. I even did a quick mock up of my Gorn in a Starfleet uniform-
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y26...n/Toshnarr.jpg
Ok maybe he doesn’t need the sash, that’s more of a Klingon thing, but if I could dress him in a Fed uniform with bare Gorn Feet and Claws I’d be happy as Larry!


PS would love to see-
U.S.S. Relativity Uniform-

“Enlisted” crewmen rank pips for all uniforms.-

I'd like some way of getting MACO/OMEGA/HONOR GUARD outfits without requiring the gear or accolades involved.

The sorts of people most interested in making nifty costumes for their characters and the sorts of people interested in doing STF runs several hundred times likely have a fairly small intersect.
