Re-Used Costumes
by
Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider

Uniforms - Civilian Clothing

 

Many costumes of Star Trek were later modified or even recycled without changes for a different purpose or another civilization. Here are quite a few examples. Please note that every statement made here should be taken with a grain of salt. There is no need to seek for explanations. Certainly we are not supposed to watch closely enough to notice that galactic fashion is not as diverse as it should be.

 

Uniforms

Cadet uniform Finnegan's glittering gray cadet uniform (TOS: "Shore Leave") shows up on Deep Space K-7 too (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles"). This certainly isn't a big deal though, as the uniform could be still the same and we can make up reasons why there should be a cadet on that station. The uniform also showed up on Argelius in TOS: "Wolf in the Fold".

Bartender jacket The bartenders in TOS: "Court-Martial" and in TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles" are wearing the same glossy pink jacket (as if it were a uniform).

Eminiaran bonnets The security forces of Eminiar VII in TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon" are wearing three different types of caps. At least two of them were re-used. They can be seen on two of the inmates of the mental institution on Elba II in TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy". It is possible that the two are actually Eminiarans.

Ferengi headgear A part of the Ferengi headgear first seen in TNG: "The Last Outpost" was re-used for the ragtag uniform of the Gatherer Brull in TNG: "The Vengeance Factor".

Police uniform The following races wear the same blue police or security uniform: the Rutians, the Vulcans, the Mari and the New Sydney authorities. Besides the decoration or rank signs only their emblems are different, and even these are often not original (see Re-Used Props - Badges).

Green uniform The long-extinct Promellians in TNG: "Booby Trap" have green jumpsuits that should reappear a few episodes later, now worn by the inhabitants of Bre'el IV in TNG: "Déjā Q". Curiously, the recurring race of an extra named Pardshay in DS9, whose make-up is the same as that of the Promellians, is wearing this uniform too!

Zalkonian uniform The Zalkonian military uniform from TNG: "Transfigurations" later appeared in several DS9 episodes. It was worn by a number of Dopterians on the show.

Work coverall The costumes worn by the miners in TNG: "The Perfect Mate" later show up in a couple of Deep Space 9 episodes. One costume is worn by a crewmember of Kasidy Yates' ship, the Xhosa, in "Family Business" while another can be seen on a Bajoran archaeologist in "Rapture".

Enaran uniform The Enaran uniform from VOY: "Remember" reappears as an Annari uniform in VOY: "Nightingale". Even the Annari badge is exactly the same.

Civilian Clothing

Pink tennis shirt In "The Cage" there is a woman wearing a pink shirt and white miniskirt. Fashion has not changed until the time of TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" where we can once again see a woman with exactly this shirt and presumably the same skirt too.

Triangular vest The Andorian Thelev, actually an Orion in disguise, is wearing a triangular leather or velvet vest in TOS: "Journey to Babel". The same piece of clothing can be seen on a human inmate of the mental institution in TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy".

Slit gowns Harry Mudd was obviously very fond of the dresses that two of his three "love slaves" were wearing in TOS: "Mudd's Women". Two of his many android creations in TOS: "I, Mudd" are clad in identical dresses, namely the Maizie and the Barbara series.

Pink/golden dress The pink and golden dress that Dr. Wallace is wearing towards the end of TOS: "The Deadly Years" reappears in a recording of the Starnes Expedition in TOS: "And the Children Shall Lead".

Fur coat The megalomaniac people in the 23rd century have the same taste of grandiose fashion. At least Anton Karidian aka Kodos in TOS: "The Conscience of the King" and Fleet Captain Garth of Izar in TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy" are wearing identical coats.

Flower dress The very same green/yellow dress with a rose pattern can be seen on several occasions, each time worn by a woman of a different race and for some time in Garak's tailor shop too. This cloth pattern must be the most popular of the galaxy. The oddest appearance of the dress, however, is in VOY: "Prophecy" when Neelix and the Klingon woman Ch'regha leave it on a sofa in Tuvok's quarters after performing a Klingon mating ritual with its usual devastating consequences. We can see both of them step out in their normal clothes (although Neelix is obviously in disorder). So who brought the dress there and who put it on?

Silver dress Yet another dress that can be seen in DS9: "Sanctuary" previously appeared in TNG: "Déjā Q". In the TNG episode it was worn by one of Q's two scantily clad women. It is the dress that Haneek pointed at in the DS9 episode, but Kira failed to understand that Haneek found it particularly awful.

Blue/brown dress Another dress appears at least twice. It is worn by one of the two women accompanying the fat Ferengi in TNG: "Unification, Part II" and by the aged Deanna in TNG: "Man of the People".

The shirt was also for sale in Garak's tailor shop in "Past Prologue".
