    It says we'll be able to recreate Captain Pike's uniform, does that mean it's going to come with a variant that doesn't have the metallic deltas up the sides?
    You can get really close currently, the colors do not line up though.

    On a positive note, it's looks like we'll be able to use Admiral badges *yay!* My admirals were only able access ensign to captain, but not the final rank. :)

    Again, the rank-badges should be irrelevant on the 'Pike' style uniform - it's SUPPOSED to have rank stripes on the sleves instead, with a 'plain' badge.

    Sadly it won't - and that's a pity. Would it really have been that difficult to 'port' the sleve rank insignia from the KT uniforms to these ones?

    I already got them the first time they were released, however I never really had any desire to use them.

    I'd like to get the Discovery Mirror uniforms and the Discovery crop sleeve uniforms.
    Mad Science means never stopping to ask "What's the worst that could happen?"

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options like rolled sleeves, adding a "thickness" modifier to hair, and letting the complexion affect the entire body, not just the head.
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts.
    4) Terran Empire event similar to AoY, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    5) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    Neck color is missing on Andorian females, Human females, and Holographic Geordi LaForge. Probably others as well.

    You can recolor the collar, but you have to swap to a different uniform that has 4 color channels and set channel 3 to the color you want, then change back.

    As predicted, no sleve/cuff rank insignia/stripes.

    Pedantic perhaps but this basically means that, even if we get the colouring correct, we can't accurately recrate that style of uniform.

    That is beside the point. The notes said the collar would be separately editable. Why is it not? My uniforms are basically stuck being blue because of this issue. I get there's a workaround for it, but THERE SHOULD NOT BE A NEED TO DO SO.

    I will probably get the free uniforms for RP reasons though I think they are extremely fugly and impractical.

    If you watch how stiff they are and the stress lines they make as the actors move they are obviously very binding, a looks-over-practicality philosophy which is the very opposite of the one Roddenberry had for the show. That and they are so hoplessly unfashionable, channeling the1980s androgynous power business suits. Yuck.

    The weird part is that the Cage and early TOS uniforms, with just a little cut adjustment and the use of real velvet (ideally in slightly darker, richer shades) instead of cheap dull (and ever shrinking) velour, would look great by todays standards. Fashion has come full circle in many respects.

    I will agree that on TV the uniform do not look well at all. However the STO version is great. Although I am not a Discovery fan all of my Fed characters haven been using this uniform since it was first released. They look even better now with the new colour palette. My crews all sport the Discovery uniforms with the TOS colours. The blue ones do not look as good as the gold and red ones but they still look amazing.

    Oh, you can make it work if you tweak it right. The trick is that color channel 3 works, but the picker is hidden. So you have to set the color of channel 3 in a different outfit that actually shows the picker. This should be fixed tomorrow though. Here's a result I made by tinkering:

    Oh, wow. Tricky. But it should be fixed after the hotfix patch? I hope? It was shockingly limited when I tried updating my Doctor's uniform after the Admiral made his Captaincy official. I hope the Lieutenant rank badges get added, as I was surprised to find none, yet a dearth of Cadet badges. And no option to change the collar black. I was wondering if I needed to Claim the DSC uniforms from the C-store to get the complete options?

    I am Not (what I consider) a fan of the DSC uniform but I have been amusing myself in my attempts to make it 'work'. My John Harrison (Khan) is wearing a DSC uniform I made 100% Black.

    Thank you! Got the collar black, made the shirt/jacket red, left the bronze trim and pants blue, as an in-between hybrid uniform. Will make full TOS variant and, as soon as it shoes in C-store correctly again, claim my TOS uniforms. It says I purchased it, but I guess the 2256 Tailor is not allowed access to it...

    The in-game department colours are different: A1 for Command, A10 for Engineering and A13 for Science/Medical - but the codes for the base jacket and boots are spot on.
    People ask how long have I been playing STO - well the answer is simple: I have been here since the beginning. I just haven't always had a lot to say.

    Ugh that dingy white...

    We need a full-on RGB color picker for all outfit options (within reason) as well as a "default" color settings to get canon clothing colors.

    This color pallette is growing tiresome at times, and sucks when you can't precisely match things up.

    Ah! That is much clearer! And a good point! Will probably have to be added as the S2 jacket or something. Hopefully they can retroactively fold it into the existing DSC Uniform, which already has Lt, Cpt & Admiral options.

    Same here, though watching the trailer and looking closely the pattern does still seem to be there, just doesn't show up as well against the gold.

    Well, can't be bothered trying to replicate the 'Pike' style uniform personally.

    The colour can't be made quite right, there remain a few differences and they didn't make it possible to use the 'cuff' rank stripes/insignia.
