Star Trek: Lower Decks makes fun of changing uniforms – game updates


from Andreas Bertits
In the trailer for the upcoming cartoon series Star Trek: Lower Decks, the crew is wearing new uniforms that we have never seen in any series or film. This is intended as a funny allusion to the rather frequent change of uniforms at The Next Generation.

During Jean-Luc Picard's adventures, Starfleet underwent a number of uniform changes. Also in the cartoon series Star Trek: Lower Decks the crew members get new clothes.

Always new uniforms

Already during the seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the uniforms changed: from a jumpsuit to a two-piece with a high collar. New uniforms were introduced again in Deep Space Nine, which in the movie Star Trek: Generations Meetings led to the crew on board the USS Enterprise wearing different versions – which made the term "uniform" somewhat absurd. Only with Star Trek: The first contact, a version with a gray shoulder piece was introduced, which we kept for a long time.

At least until shortly after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. Because in the cartoon series Star Trek: Lower Decks – which incidentally belongs to the official canon – the crew is again wearing uniforms that are more reminiscent of the series The Next Generation. The series takes place in 2380, a year after Nemesis. Funnily enough, looking back at the Star Trek: Picard series, we see that other uniforms were used again in 2385.

These "intermediate uniforms" in Star Trek: Lower Decks are meant as a kind of homage to all these changes. Because Starfleet is constantly introducing new uniforms, new ones are used between 2380 and 2385.

"There's a lot going on in Picard. If you're on a California class ship in 2380, you'd better wear this uniform," said Lower Decks inventor Mike McMahan, humorously.

Star Trek: Lower Decks launches in the U.S. on August 6th. It is not yet clear when we will see the series in this country.
