U is for Star Trek Uniforms
U is for Star Trek UNIFORM. Heres an email fom Trekker fan David which trek fans should know the answer to. Why did Klingons change from the original blokes with beards and silver vests to the Worf types of today? You'll love the answer Brent Spiner (Data) gave which is a real Stumper.
"Well they're talking about the difference between what they looked like on the original series and what they look like now. Obviously technology increased and makeup techniques increased but also the budgets of the shows increased. "(So far so good Brent, now here it comes!)
"You know The Original Series costumes were made by the actors mothers!"
Now come on! I didn't fall for that, DID YOU?
I heard the interviewers chuckling at his theory which was of course one of Spiner's gags. So the interviewer says "No but seriously." sadly Brent has to come clean.
"NO" he admits, before finally having a quiet laugh himself.
Keep on Star Trekking!
