# 1 Standard Starfleet Uniforms
09-12-2012, 04:06 PM
Star Trek online takes place in the year 2409 and ST:VOY Endgame takes place in 2404 so don't you think we should use the Endgame/All good things uniforms as standard as it would be more appropriete to the time STO is set in?

On the other hand, as far as I can tell, that uniform only seems to show up in potential future timelines that always seem to get wiped out. Every time I see that uniform, I find myself thinking, "Aha. Parallel Universe time."

I think I would stop playing the game if my Fed characters were forced to wear the All Good Things uniform.

This guy again... Yeah, I'd call the whole thing off if I were forced into that.

The problem about it is that they were originally just designed for this one time-travel episode, and not given quite the same care and consideration that the shows' regular uniforms got. Then it got reused a couple of times, and it's been hell ever since...

My middle ground is this: Cryptic needs to take another crack at this open uniform thing of theirs, only then create a variant with the uniform jacket unzipped all the way - as it should've been all along - and have the shirt underneath be the All Good Things one. As much as I loathe the uniform, it's sorta how I figure this thing'd evolve.

But anyway, they can't force us to wear a uniform that we have to buy off the Z-store. Nor could they go and put NPCs in it, cause then they'd be pressuring people into buying it to fit in. And if they do give it out for free, there'll be hell to pay from those who already bought it. So that's a ship that's sailed...

The suggestion doesn't prevent YOU from wearing whatever uniforms you want. The suggestion is that the DEFAULT uniform style (on all NPCs) should be the AGT/Endgame style uniform. And not the Cryptic "maintenance jumpsuit style".

And I agree. Being that it's pretty much the same time period as Endgame, it should definitely have been the default style. Bad enough really, to have every uniform from every time period in the game, but worse to have the NPCs running around in uniforms which -isn't- canon for the time period.

That's a matter of personal opinion. Personally, I think they look alot better than the TNG "early season" uniforms, and a HUMONGOUS improvement over the Male Skant version.

The short answer is 'no' because I really hate that uniform design. I prefer cryptic's variants over it any day of the week.

The longer answer is that those episodes took place in timelines that became invalidated due to the acts of the various characters (Picard was time hopping thanks to Q, Adm. Janeway went back in time purposefully to change the timeline, Jake Sisko killed himself to prevent his dad from becoming permanently stuck in subspace or whatever was happening to him in that episode). So it's not anymore valid than choosing some other uniform.
