    Can’t believe I missed this post... :D
    The Missus and I were there for the Saturday and Sunday.
    ‘Twas fun but a little disappointing in some ways.

    That's 2 minutes long. I'm not watching that. They give away too much even in 2 minutes.

    New Spoke is so hip with that beard, luckily for me I can stomach almost everything.

    Spock needs a maroon turtleneck and a tightfitting gray cardigan.

    Ah, glad I'm not the only one who thought so. I was up there for the Saturday and thought the event left a lot to be desired. Was somewhat surreal seeing the cast (and some of the characters; Ferengi) in person, but otherwise was a bit of a disappointment. I expected more … themed stuff.

    Couldn't quite believe how obnoxious William Shatner was either; he was the only guest there with noticeable security detail.

    It's for his ego. It needs to be secured from everyone else.

    Why are the uniforms on the Discovery so different than the ones on the Enterprise. Has that ever happened before? Doesn't every crew in Starfleet usually wear the same ship uniform? (Except for Voyager, of course because of being lost for so long that they were still wearing the DS9 uniforms when Starfleet evolved to the grey shouldered First Contact ones)

    Maybe the Enterprise are trialling new uniforms and, being the flagship starship of the Federation, they get to try it out first while everyone else has to continue to wear the old blue uniforms. That can be one of the only reasons for that, because the rest of the Federation, including that woman admiral who was kidnapped by the Klingons and wasn't even part of the Discovery crew, had a blue uniform.

    I think it's happened on DS9 before, specifically where Admirals have been wearing a different colour variation compared to officers. Swear there's a scene or two with Ross wearing Black & Red, when Sisko is wearing Grey and Black.

    In any case, maybe it's more to do with the department? Think about our military (in it's entirity); the air force has one theme, the Navy has another, the armed forces (or common infantry?) have another. Maybe (because the Constitution Class is more an exploration vessel than say, a Science or Military vessel) they simply wear different clothing?

    ...doesn't explain the Admirals mind you. Otherwise we'll just adhere to what @Dark Raven has said.

    In terms of in-universe chronology, Enterprise came first. And there, the uniform was a NASA-style blue jumpsuit. ~100 years later, on DISCO, blue is still the standard color (except for medical personnel). But the uniform evolved into a more formal and sleeker look with metallic trim. (The same ship uniform is also worn by admirals, etc. - which wasn’t the case on Enterprise.) Presumably, fashions continued to evolve; so by the time of Star Trek TOS, the iconic gold/blue/red tunics were regulation.

    Now (apparently), season 2 of DISCO represents the intersection of two distinct visual continuities (DISCO, in our present; and TOS, from the 1960s). And I’m guessing (along with @Dark Raven) there’ll be an explanation along the lines of the Enterprise crew being the first to try out yet another design scheme. And - meta-textually - the audience will know that this design became standard in the Captain Kirk era.

    The enterprise being the 1st to try it is something i can believe. Admirals usually dress differently than ship crew anyway (like in Star Trek: Enterprise i believe the admiral wore a black wardrobe compared to the ship crew's grey).

    Looks like the Enterprise has had a bit of a change... :D

    If you look at the dimensions on the screen grab, they are in line with the original connie!

    Got this for Christmas on BR, having not seen in on Netflix at all, and am 2 episodes in and have to say, incredibly impressed by it, in every way, visually, characters, story structure, performances thus far.

    It gets better, especially the MU stuff. There's a couple of filler episodes, but overall, despite the haters, Discovery is a win as far as I'm concerned.

    Sorry, that was supposed to of been MU. I've amended my above post. In any case, MU = Mirror Universe.

    He's not going to get one right away. It will take a whole season or possibly more. He needs to earn that shave and haircut first before becoming the Spock we all know. Maybe in the last 15 minutes of the season he'll get his beard and hair trimmed. :o

    @Dark Raven
    Okay, that was pretty funny... :D

    I just hope they don't give him slanted nacelles, if you know what I mean...

    In my opinion, this is the design the reboot films should have used. I don't remotely like the JJ Connie, but I very much like the DSC one.
