Please don't be such a hardcore grognard. The old Trek uniforms were somewhat pretty, but rather stupid. Starship engineers who are exposed to things like hot plasma etc don't wear protective clothes just because STarfleet makes them look good in their standard non-protective uniforms.
And it's about time! Perpetual had some good ideas, but the aesthetic design they had was horrible. Those uniforms do not look Trek, they do not feel Trek, they are not Trek. I could see them as the outfits/uniforms as some random race of the week to be saved/killed. But nothing a Starfleet Officer would wear.
The Odyssey uniforms should replace the other uniforms on all the NPC's throughout the game world, and the Antares and Sierra potato sacks (*ahem* uniforms) relegated elsewhere.
100% agree with you.
Instead of having to argue about bad looking uniforms, cryptics designers should have a unequal good understanding about Star Trek aestethics. We should be in awe about every new uniform they have done or will release instead.

I actually like the Sierra 1 uniforms, as they are (in my opinion) the closest to the DS9/First Contact design before the Odyssey uniforms came out. I pretty much have all my BOffs wearing Sierra 1 uniforms. Didn't really like the Antares uniforms, but I won't go so far as to say they should be removed.
And in case anyone forgot... you can have it as either glossy or matte.
I've been reading the Mirror Images comic line and I have to say, there's an interesting uniform design in it. It's a altered Wrath of Khan style uniform, but with a different collar, and a division patch on the collar (as well as a Terran Empire insignia on the chest).
People forgot about the IDIC philosophy unfortunately.
Wanna see a war? Post stuff about a Star Trek mod for a Star Wars game.
Instant bashing because its "Not Star Wars". Saw that plenty of times when I browsed FileFront and saw something for Empire at War's Pic of the Day.
I think its because of IDIC that Star Trek fans are more accepting of non Trek stuff. Although... there are exceptions, even in regards to some Trek stuff. Which I still don't understand.
Back on topic... rolled up sleeves would be nice. Especially on my Engie.
