Star Trek’s original series ran on a budget of $3.75 per episode and regularly featured guest stars wearing bikinis made out of curtains and tinsel. Yet somehow its costumes still managed to look more plausible than the unsettling fleshbags we see in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Starfleet’s oldschool “red shirt/blue shirt” uniforms are iconic for a reason. They’re extremely simple by sci-fi costume standards (which is why the 2009 reboot movie barely had to update the uniform at all), and make it easy to differentiate between characters when they’re running around. The Motion Picture’s uniforms, on the other hand, are distractingly terrible in every regard. The palette runs from beige to pale blue — a selection of colours usually restricted to hospital scrubs and control underwear. — Star Trek: The Motion Picture — A costume design nightmare.
