this also happened in DS9. People on starships wore picard's type of uniform while those on DS9 wore riker's type.

There's been a lot of discussion on this over the years. People can't seem to decide whether it was monetary concerns, or they were just trying to ease out of the TNG uniforms and into the new ones.

I like the theory that the DS9/VOY unifroms were introduced as alternative uniforms to be used at the discretion of the commanding officer on starbases.


Later, they proved popular and were slowly introduced on starships. Janeway opted to use them, and Picard let his crew wear them them if they chose.


 


Then, of course, everything was replaced with the brand-spankin' new First Contact grey uniforms, which everybody wore (except Voyager, which didn't get the memo, for obvious reasons).

I like the one just before the grey ones the most. They seem simpler

The ones with the purple undershirt? Yeah, those are my favorite, too.

yeah, those. Telling what color they are is easier than looking at the undershirt of the grey ones

monetary concerns was the reason we saw 2 uniforms iin the film.............but its because they blew part of the budget on a new uniform design that was rejected after some of the filming was already done.

Here is what the Star Trek Vault: 40 Years from the Archives has to say about it:


 


"As it happened, though new uniforms had been designed for Star Trek: Generations, it was decided just before production to scrap the new designs and go forward with a mix of existing uniforms from The Next Generation and spinoff series Deep Space Nine; accounts vary as to whether the decision was a financial one or made for creative reasons, out of fear of introducing too many new elements to the audience."


 


This is also why the action figures had the new uniform that would've been in the movie.

I'm not sure if your source is a on line site or some kind of publication, but it isint 100 accurate.


the claim that the new uniforms were scraped "BEFORE" production is in error.

When they said production, they meant filming, not making the uniforms. You are correct, the uniforms were made before the movie, but scrapped after they were made.


 


I was just expandng on what had already been said.


 


Also,I use my original theory above to expain how it all fits into canon, not why it happened in real life.


Kind of like, "We all know TOS effects were bad because of the tight budget, but to explain it in the Star Trek universe, we say that it occurred much before Next Generation.

I understood what they meant by "production", and they are still wrong.


Some filming was done with the "scraped" uniforms.
