“Star Trek” Costumer On Crossover Uniforms


One of many notable modifications between the unique “Star Trek” sequence set within the twenty third century and people of the ‘Subsequent Technology’ period set within the twenty fourth century is the uniforms.

While the model of the uniforms modified each few years, one factor that modified between the 2 time durations was the colour. Within the authentic Sixties sequence, the command officers wore yellow, operations officers (engineering/communication/safety) wore crimson, and science/medical officers wore blue.

Within the ‘Subsequent Technology’ period, the crimson and yellow coloration designation switched. Consequently, exhibits set across the Kirk-era resembling “Star Trek: Unusual New Worlds”, retain the outdated coloration scheme, while these set within the TNG-era just like the animated “Star Trek: Decrease Decks” have the Subsequent Gen coloration scheme.

The distinction will reportedly be addressed within the upcoming crossover episode between these two exhibits in accordance with Slashfilm who spoke with ‘Unusual New Worlds’ costume designer Bernadette Croft.

Croft spoke concerning the problem of adapting the animated uniforms into precise garments for live-action actors – from microprint on the uniforms, which started with the extra fashionable Paramount+ period of Trek, to some key choices about coloration. A very powerful factor was listening to element:

“The important thing issues to contemplate had been: Had been we going to make use of microprint on the uniforms? Ought to the material and colours be the identical because the ‘Unusual New Worlds’ uniforms? Curiously, while you see the animation, the colour of the pants is charcoal, they’re not black. And likewise, the soles of the boots have this distinct emblem. Even the way in which Mariner wears her uniform on this nonchalant method, she has her sleeves rolled — these are all essential references for me, and I all the time needed to be aware of these specific issues.”

Croft additionally spoke about one key visible component – Ensign Boimler’s purple hair. The present’s hair and make-up division handled that query, and Croft mentioned Decrease Decks’ showrunner Mike McMahan was key to selecting the ultimate consequence:

“They examined just a few choices, which was actually attention-grabbing. All through prep, we consulted with the ‘Decrease Decks’ showrunner Mike McMahan. He needed to be concerned to assist us steadiness all of those parts in order that it made sense for each exhibits. I can not look forward to this episode. I’ve seen it and it’s so humorous.”

The second season of “Star Trek: Unusual New Worlds” will debut on June fifteenth and run for ten episodes by means of August seventeenth. Jonathan Frakes directed the ‘Decrease Decks’ crossover episode, and it’s at present not recognized which episode within the run it will likely be.
