So yesterday I teased the above image. It is the uniform that Pike’s friend (customer?) wears in the dream sequence with the Orion Slave Girl in The Cage. Well, Axanar costume consultant Caude Doziere and I discussed making one of these for Garth for use in the next two episodes of The Four Years War.
One of the things we always like doing at Axanar is plying the reaches of Star Trek history and canon and honoring it. We are hard core Star Trek geeks and we love the Easter Eggs we can drop, not just for the sake of dropping them, but because they FIT into our era of Star Trek. Star Trek Discovery can do what they want to “reimagine” Star Trek. But the fact is that look, like it or not, is NOT Prime timeline Star Trek. (It is actually the only real issue I have with Discovery)
One of the things we are all focused on as we work towards our next two segments is making the next two episodes BETTER than Prelude to Axanar. That is a pretty high bar, but we look to improve in every way we can. So when it comes to costumes, what can we do?
Well Claude and I talked at length, and after Claude was well under way with Garth and Sonya’s tunics, we decided to add another tunic for Garth.
And the close up detail:
We kind of think of this like Picard’s jacket in season 5 of The Next Generation.
We hope you like the direction we are going. Your comments are always welcome.
