Legacy of Romulus Devblog Outlines the Design of Romulan Uniforms
Uniforms are obviously a huge part of Star Trek Online and the Star Trek universe. They have come in all sorts of designs and colors, and most of them are available in the in-game C-Store. Suffice to say, when it came to designing Romulan uniforms of the 2409 variety the STO art team used elements from all different versions of Romulan attire.
Elements of the 1960’s Balance of Terror and The Enterprise Incident were used, including the checkered patterns as well as go-go dresses and thigh-high boots for women. The checkered pattern was continued in The Next Generation and finally in Star Trek: Nemesis; a V-pattern on the chest was introduced as well. All of which have been used in the the new design for Romulan uniforms in order to reflect how the Hobus Supernova and subsequent civil war have ravaged the Romulan people. The end result is reminiscent of what Cryptic is describing as, “a rugged space explorer and a refugee in search of a new home.” Uniforms from The Original Series will also be available for purchase in the C-Store.
Legacy of Romulus will be released on May 21st, 2013. A gallery of the uniforms, old and new, is available for viewing below.
