Okay, I know there are already a few threads to this effect, but I think I'll include visuals.

Let me show you what STARFLEET formal wear looks like:
[Pre-Insurrection]

[Post-Insurrection]

It's called a Dress Uniform (or Class As) and is what we see Starfleet officers wearing at every formal event ever seen on screen (Weddings, Military Dinners, Awards Ceremonies, etc).
We never see Starfleet Officers in anything other than these unless they're on the Holodeck in period clothing.

And now KLINGON formal wear:
[DS9 Wedding]
Screenshot (only good image I could find of those, my google0fu sucks right now)

What is this that we're seeing on the C-Store? It is not formal wear, it's costume wear for the holodeck. Players want dress uniforms (and not as a reward for Admiral, every Starfleet officer has a dress uniform, not just Admirals and Veterans).

I, for one, would much prefer that the C-store credits go to formal wear that makes some cannon sense.
I've defended you pretty vehemently Cryptic, but c'mon, just for once can we play on the same team?

(in all fairness, I'm sure folks will love them for RP purposes, I'm just not impressed myself I guess)

Er... this stuff is for off duty. These are not meant for military use.

There is a military Dress Uniform in game, but it is a grind to get it.

As I had said in the Uniform poll, I would like to see the 18th Century sailing outfits from Star Trek: Generations added as an option. They could be customizable such that one could be British, French, Spanish, American or another sea faring power from the time.

I would also like to see serveral Dress uniform designs added. Kirk and McCoy's Dress uniforms from "Bable", The stupid dresses that the Next Generation crew wore for female Federation characters, the White Dress Uniforms the DS9 and Enterprise-E crew had, and perhapse Navy Whites simalar to modern World Navies complete with medals (the level three accolades medals).

The post insurrection uniform is already in game. It's the reward for reaching Federation Ambassador in the Diplomat Corps. I'm actually wearing it in my avatar pic. I would like to see more dress uniforms made available though. Perhaps retroactively through each eras C-Store pack(if you have the pack, you get the dress uni) Added in game as a reward for some other missions/achievement, or, if in the C-Store as a separate pack, Dress Uniforms Throughout The Ages that includes several dress uniforms from each era of Trek.

Who are you to say what the players want? I would sooner have the new formal wear than Starfleet dress unis.

Yes, how dare I have the nerve to wear a holodeck costume in-game, because they never wore holodeck costumes on the TV shows, right? Oh wait, no, they did.

I agree with OP in part. This formal ware surely isn't trek, as it says in the name 21st century formal ware. I also want to see more dress uniform options, but I am glad we didn't see them in the c-store. I think this formal ware is a good addition to the C-Store because it isn't not canon, it's just a fluff option, take it or leave it. I think dress uniforms are big enough deal they should just be in the game at no additional cost. I wouldn't mind as a vet reward because I know they have to justify the time taken to make it when they could be working on other things, but I would prefer to see dress uniforms in the game rather then this formal ware.
