Star Trek Style

When the new Star Trek movie opened on Thursday I was right in line to see it the first day, and I loved it.   Star Trek has always been one of my favorite shows, and the Wrath of Khan is my favorite movie ever.  Star Trek is credited with inspiring thousands of sciencetists and influencing the development of a lot of things including cell phones and lap tops.  I'm not sure if there is any truth to this, or at least the product development part, but I love the show.   On the subject of style Star Trek is a bit iffier, with some people blaming it for the leisure suit trend

and certainly several of the alien races are fond of unflatteringly large shoulder pads

However, the first Star Trek series, had definite, if wacky, style.    Here are a few of the more outrageous get ups.

In defense of my favorite show I cite this quote from the British writer Arnold Bennett: "Good taste is better then bad taste, but bad taste is better then no taste at all."  You certainly can't accuse Star Trek of having no taste at all.


  1. What a blast. I don't remember some of these. My husband is a trekkie, so he won't mind a Star Trek marathon. My daughter has seen the new Star Trek movie and loved it.

  2. Hahaha! The furry pink and yellow one reminds me of a Muppet or Sesame Street character. There sure were some bizarre characters and fashion.

  3. Thank you so much!
    Your post brought back many happy memories.
    Good luck with your new blog!

  4. What a great post! They had so much character - you have to love that!!

  5. Absolutely! Star Trek has taste, excitement, romance, science, and plenty of good old fashioned fun. I wouldn't call myself a hardcore fan, but I've always enjoyed the original and Next Generation (when I was about six years old, I had the biggest crush on Riker), and am looking forward to seeing the latest movie.
