Im not sure why you guys are having an issue but I am able to put my unlocked Uniforms on my Boffs. I have the TNG Movie Uniforms and I can put them on my Bridge Officers just fine.
Go back and re-read the first post. Nobody's having trouble with the "Starfleet - The Next Generation - Film" Uniform Upper option on their BOffs. It's the other 5 "named" options that are failing to apply to BOffs when selected:
Starfleet - Deep Space Nine
Starfleet - The Next Generation - Series
Starfleet - The Original Series
Starfleet - The Wrath of Khan
Terran - TOS Mirror Universe
And, as of this posting, I still can't apply any of these 5 Uniform Upper options to my BOffs. Which means that I'm still holding off on launching my main captain, since I bought both the Gamestop preorder and Atari's deluxe digital edition in order to start with a TOS Connie-class crewed by folks in TOS uniforms. And, of course, I'm also still waiting for the issues with missing TOS skirts and Mirror female everything to be resolved, since I'd planned to have my slightly-less-than-button-down crew make a few "tailoring options" to their issued uniforms by the time they got their 2nd ship.
