Star Trek Discovery uniforms

It was a rule that plagued writers of previous Star Trek TV shows: in order to better represent Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s idyllic vision of a utopian future, writers were strongly encouraged to avoid having Starfleet crew members in conflict with each other.

Berg have lifted that restriction for their writing staff, which should lead to a very different Trek show than any we’ve seen before.

Below, read more about the discarding of the old rule, see a photo of a new Star Trek Discovery uniform (ooh, tactical armor!), and check out an infographic that breaks down the new styles of the uniforms in detail.

The newest Star Trek live-action TV series was announced to air on the CBS All Access streaming service back in November 2015 and had trouble getting off the ground, as showrunners Bryan Fuller left the project during a troubled development. But with a teaser trailer generating hype for the show, and a star-studded diverse cast including Chinese superstar Michelle Yeoh and The Walking Dead star Sonequa Martin-Green, it seems like Star Trek: Discovery can finally boldly go forward.

Co-creator and producer Alex Kurtzman dished on the reason for the show’s delay, as well as the celebrity cameos that are peppered throughout the series.
