Multiple Emmy award-winning Robert Blackman presently holds the position of costume designer for Enterprise. Largely recognized for the current design of the Starfleet uniforms and many of the alien costumes, Blackman's work in other-worldly garb began when he became the costume designer for Star Trek: The Next Generation at the beginning of the show's third season in 1990.
Blackman has continued these duties as head of Star Trek wardrobe ever since, overseeing Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Enterprise. His credits also include the movie "Star Trek Generations." Through his work on Star Trek, Blackman has earned a total of eight Emmy nominations (with two wins) for outstanding costume design.
However, Blackman's work is not confined to Star Trek on the big or small screens. Other feature film credits include costuming "'night Mother," "Running Man" and "Worth Waiting," along with television credits for "Stones of Ibarra" and "Day by Day." Blackman's career has taken him to numerous theatre companies, including San Francisco's American Conservatory Theatre, as well as the Ahmanson Theatre and Mark Taper Forum, both in Los Angeles. The productions he has worked on have included "Cyrano de Bergerac," "MacBeth," "Richard III," "Foxfire" and "The Crucible."
Blackman graduated from the University of Texas with a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. He went on to receive a Master's degree, also in Fine Arts, from the Yale School of Drama.
