I realize that you either tolerate or hate the new uniforms, so where did they come up with a design like this? Well, SG-1 uniforms are based on US Airforce gear. Today I watched a 50min 3D documentary on the International Space Station and noticed something very familar, the uniforms. While not exactly the same, they have similar color schemes, pocket positioning, and triangular designs (not identical, but similar theme). They also had their country flag on their left arm, as in Atlantis. From this standpoint I can understand the design.

NOTE: If you wish to discuss your feelings toward the uniform design use this (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=237) thread.

No problem. I have attached two images from NASA's website which best illistrate my point. More images from the International Space Station can be seen here (http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/station/index.html).

Yes, but then again, the ISS crew isn't likely to be thrust into sudden combat with attacking aliens, are they? Or fight a pitched ground battle? Or heck, fight at all, except over who gets the last tube of pizza? ;)

Heh... ShadowMaat's right, but still, at least the images show us that there is some realism to the Atlantis uniforms.

I saw something on NORAD the other day, and they had patches that signified which country they were from. I dont really see why anyone would have issues with the patches on the new uniforms though...

How so? Who is to say that the uniforms we use today are going to be the same in the next decade or so?

Uniforms change...

Jerry is right. A while back (I think it was the Army) the Army released design plans for their possible new uniforms. Most of them looked like they came right out of Star Trek.

So the new uniforms are based off of NASA instead of the Air Force? Interesting...

wonder if they will use teh P90's or the new Personal Defense Weapon the Army has been developing...

I don't mind the uniforms anymore. By the looks of it only the Civs will be wearing them. And they don't look to bad in good lighting. I think it was just the BAD promotional pictures that made it look so bad. In the actual show they seem to fit.

Only the civs? There's an Air Force Major wearing one of those Trek uniforms in the pictures.

EDIT: Oops, I meant to post this in the how do you like the uniforms thread. :(

I may have missed if they explained it anywhere, on the count that I've been trying to stay away from Atlantis spoilers, and if I did I'm sorry, but...

Does the SG Atlantis team actually KNOW that they are going to meet a new hostile species? If not, then that could explain why they aren't decked out in military clothing. If it was originally supposed to be a mission of peace, then you wouldn't need a ful military uniform or a lot of weapons. Agree? Disagree?

Disagree. They are venturing into the unknown. Common sense would dictate that military personnel would bring weapons and expect the worse in unkown situations. If anything, they might bring more weapons. If they do encounter peaceful conditions then no need to use the weapons. Better be safe than sorry...

Disagree?They didn't know that they would meet an enemy, but they were certainly prepared to. If you'll notice, the Marines did wear their MARPAT camo, and have worn it since for specifically tactical missions.

The Atlantis uniforms look like something from a film of which I cant remember the name! :D

I think the point was that it was a purely diplomatic mission with a military escort. The idea is to seem a lot less threatening.

IMO, the uniforms look a like they would be something we would use, although at times, I am wondering why they do not wear the same uniform, I mean as a team and all.
