From what I've seen on other sites, the grey uniforms ended up being the same colour as Discovery
's corridors/non-bridge sets, so the actors were all fading into the background.
The more times I watch the trailer, though, the more it's bothering me how thick and structured these look, with thick pads inside the shoulders and things to keep the fabric basically rigid at all times.
I get that too, for all the Bad-Robot-Era Trek shows; the costumes just look so uncomfortable
. It was particularly bad on Picard, when ghost-Data was clearly wearing a version of the FC-era uniform that came from a Halloween store rather than an actual screen-quality costume (you can see
the zipper hanging from his ill-fitting nonelastic collar).
Yeah, I hadn't even thought about it in those terms and just kinda uncritically accepted that, oh hey, there's the plot for this season. Like, of course it's going to be fate of the universe, etc. etc.
That's the other
hallmark of modern Trek that I hate. We have Star Trek: Epic
, Star Trek: Emotions
, and Star Trek: Wacky
, with Star Trek: Uplifting
joining us soon.
I miss the era when a single show could do all
Don't hand me a bread roll, some ground beef, some cheese, and a salad, and tell me it's a hamburger.
