This is a rather eventful year for Star Trek since it has two big things going for it. This July marks the release of the new movie Star Trek: Beyond. However, whether Old Spock will make an appearance in the film is a mystery since we recently lost Leonard Nimoy who was mourned by Trekkies everywhere. Nevertheless, as we know, this franchise has produced 6 TV shows and several movies. And it continues to appeal to generations. This September will mark Star Trek’s 50th anniversary.
Conceived by the late Gene Roddenberry and first aired in 1966, Star Trek has been a franchise focused on space, the final frontier with missions to explore new worlds, to seek out life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no man has gone before. While the original series only ran on NBC for 3 seasons, it managed to attract an enduring and vocal fanbase that its cultural impact can’t be denied and it’s become a cult phenomenon for decades, especially since it had several movies in the 1970s and 1980s as well as notable spin-off series that were more successful like Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. In recent years, they’ve even made a reboot of some of the original movies but in a different style so they wouldn’t be sued by the Roddenberry family (well, that’s my theory). Not to mention, it’s also notable for Trekkies and Star Trek conventions.
Since Star Trek is well known for Trekkies to dress up as their favorite characters at these conventions. Of course, you might come across people dressed as Kirk and Spock as well as some Klingons. But you might find some other characters there as well. And as you see, you’ll find many aliens in outlandish costumes from the original series and beyond. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of Star Trek costumes from the final frontier boldly going where no man has gone before.
- Here we have a lovely Andorian woman from Starfleet.
The Andorians are noted for their blue skin, white hair, and antennae. They also tend to call humans “pink skin.”
2. This little guy is a proud member of Starfleet and the Enterprise.
Well, at least that outfit’s from The Next Generation. Because if it was a redshirt from the original series, I’d have a problem. Still, so cute.
3. Guess these Starfleet officers are from an alternative timeline.
These are Starfleet Steampunk uniforms. And yes, they look kind of cool if you ask me.
4. From TNG, may I introduce to you to the lovable android and Operations Officer Data.
Sure Data might be an android who admires humanity. But he’s such a lovable guy that you can’t help but like him. This one’s not bad looking, too.
5. Hop aboard the Starfleet Express.
Once again, I give you more Star Trek Steampunk. The guy resembles a train conductor. Like the woman’s dress, too.
6. Those who remember “Amok Time” might also recall T’Pring.
T’Pring was Spock’s fiancee since childhood who dumped him for another Vulcan man. But not before she had Spock fight with Kirk. This, when Spock was going through his pon farr, which isn’t pretty.
7. Where would Deep Space Nine be without its chief science officer Jadzia Dax?
While she seems like a young woman, she’s in symbiosis with a wise, long-lived creature called a Dax. Even before she became a host, she was pretty smart.
8. Oh, shit, seems like Kim Cardassian has to be everywhere these days.
I’m not sure if I’d want Kanye West to be with this woman. I hear the Cardassians are known for their brutality. But I think this is hilarious.
9. Against a Borg cube resistance is futile.
The Borg Cube is a spacecraft that’s home to the hive like Borg Collective. If your ship comes across one of these, avoid it at all times.
10. We should remember that even Klingons were young once.
Sure this baby may look adorable now. But once they grow up, they can be quite ruthless. But they do exhibit a code of honor.
11. During the Next Generation, no one can run a better Enterprise than Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Along with Kirk, Picard is seen as one of the more iconic Star Trek captains. He may be a consummate Earl Grey drinking gentlemen and diplomat, but he’s not a guy you’d want to mess with.
12. As TNG’s chief engineer on the Enterprise, you just have to give a hand to Lieutenant Commander Geordi LaForge.
Notably played by LeVar Burton, LaForge has his own visor due to being born blind. Is an engineering whiz, nice guy, and Data’s best friend.
13. I bet these two are just like Romeo and Juliet.
Meaning that these two fell in love despite that their planet is engulfed in a stupid civil war. From “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield.”
14. When it comes to glitz, Ferengi know how to dress.
I think this might be from a Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. It’s a place I think Ferengi will feel right at home since they love money.
15. We should remember that while Romulans may look like Vulcans, they are not.
While Vulcans are seen as logical, Romulans are cunning, passionate, and opportunistic. They’re also really hated by Klingons.
16. While Klingons are known to be a proud warrior race, there’s always an occasional non-conformist among them.
On your left, you have a rather normal looking Klingon. On your right, you have a Klingon dressed like Elton John in the 1970s.
17. In a parallel universe, Spock is known to sport a trademark goatee.
Yes, that’s Evil Spock all right. He’s very scary and also not to be messed with. Not sure who the woman’s supposed to be.
18. Of course, even Bones McCoy is bound to get some action in “Shore Leave.”
Yes, I know that’s Dr. McCoy with two women who are dressed like they’re from a Dr. Seuss porn parody. But yes, this was in the original series. Don’t ask me how wardrobe came up with those outfits.
19. On Vulcan, Spock’s family matriarch is T’Pau.
She was to officiate on what should’ve been Spock’s wedding. But his fiancee had other ideas.
20. From “The Way to Eden” is Irina Galliulin a Starfleet dropout and onetime girlfriend of Ensign Chekov.
And as space hippie, her costume was possibly made from curtains. Still, “Eden” in this episode is basically uninhabitable.
21. This green girl apparently has a gig as a Las Vegas showgirl.
Okay, that’s really clever. I know Kirk might want a piece of her. Like the feathers though.
22. On the Enterprise, you might find space suits like these from the original series.
Interestingly enough, I’m sure this guy’s suit was made by the same materials as the original ones were. Seems like an almost perfect replica, too. Screen windows, especially.
23. This orange space suit is said to have a certain hazmat variant.
Well, it’s not exactly like the original but close. Still has the hazmat design in mind.
24. Aboard the first Enterprise as resident Vulcan and science officer was none other than T’Pol.
And this is her in her trademark outfit. Still has sexual tension with Archer and Tucker.
25. Staffing on Deep Space Nine as Chief of Security and First Officer are Odo and Major Kira.
As a shapeshifter, Odo is well suited for the job but doesn’t know where he comes from. Major Kira is a Bajoran who wants independence for her people.
26. As far as sexy get ups go, Losira’s is interesting.
I know it looks like a mix of harem attire and TRON. But I have no idea what Star Trek’s costume designer was on during the 1960s.
27. Those who’ve watched the original series might remember Harry Mudd and his women.
Well, here he is with one of his women. Still, the guy is a con man you shouldn’t trust with anything, especially if it pertains to money. Also, his beautiful women, they’re on drugs to appear super beautiful.
28. Member of Starfleet or 19th century Trekkie?
And yet, another Steampunk Starfleet uniform. Still, like the sword. Couldn’t resist this one.
29. I bring you the command of the Enterprise you all know and love.
I guess these consist of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, and Scotty. And it seems Uhura is holding a tribble.
30. Looks like Captain Kirk likes to have a bunny or two on bridge.
We all know that Kirk has a well established reputation as a perv. This is why casting him as Hugh Hefner with Starfleet Playboy bunnies is so funny. And one is even green.
31. Even Princess Leia can’t help herself to the occasional tribble.
Yes, this is a Star Wars and Star Trek mashup. And yes, Chewie’s depicted as a tribble. But it’s clever.
32. Occasionally, you might have a chance to see T’Pol in pink.
Yes, she wore an outfit like that, too. But not as often. But that expression is rather typical of her character, especially when Commander Tucker got himself into a little escapade.
33. Second to Picard on the Enterprise is Commander Riker.
Seems to resemble the guy from the show. However, he’s not nearly as likable as Picard at any rate.
34. I’m afraid this Starfleet crew member has already been assimilated.
The Borg are a nasty bunch in Star Trek since they turn people into mindless cyborgs. They make Cardassians, Klingons, and Romulans seem friendly.
35. These Andorian women are just hanging out.
I guess those are what the Andorians normally wear. Seems to go well with their complexions.
36. Guess Klingon Gandalf decided to make an appearance.
So let me get this straight. He’s a Klingon. Yet, he’s also a wizard. Let’s just say you shall not pass by him on any day.
37. Fresh from Starfleet Academy, here are some new Guardians of the Galaxy.
And I see that Groot has a red shirt on. Let’s hope it doesn’t mean anything bad. Then again, he does regenerate somehow.
38. Here we have Captain Jean-Luc Picard meeting up with Commander Benjamin Sisko.
Of course, while under Borg assimilation, Picard killed Sisko’s wife Jennifer. Because of this Sisko doesn’t really like him much.
39. With Spock, it’s always “Live long and prosper.”
Yes, that’s Spock all right. He’s one of the most popular characters in the franchise. Leonard Nimoy will sure be missed.
40. Here we have Data sharing a moment with his beloved cat.
His cat’s name is Spot and is in TNG for the last 4 seasons. It’s also a female and has kittens.
41. On board the Enterprise TNG, we have Counselor Deanna Troi.
She’s half-Betazoid with empathetic abilities as well as detect lies and helps give Picard the edge in negotiations (by usually stating the obvious). Usually functions on the show as the damsel in distress and therapist.
42. Of course, Troi also wears a blue dress as well.
Well, that blue dress is lovely. However, as far as the TNG cast is concerned, she’s not among the most liked.
43. Joining the Voyager crew is the Doctor and Seven of Nine.
He is a mere hologram physician. And she is a highly attractive woman who’s recovering from Borg assimilation. These two are probably the best liked characters of the Voyager series.
44. And here Kim Cardassian looks stunning in her Vogue formal gown.
This is brilliant and hilarious. Love how Kim K’s depicted as a reptilian alien who tend to be enemies of the Federation.
45. In the new movies, you tend to see Spock paired with Uhura.
As far as putting Uhura with Spock, this Trekkie is not a fan. I mean such romance doesn’t really make sense to me. What the hell were the screenwriters thinking?
46. Here Captain Kirk tells a female redshirt to set her phaser to “stunning.”
Female Redshirts: To some they are eye candy. To some they are candy. Still have a higher survivor rate than their male counterparts.
47. Deep Space Nine serves as the exploration base of the Gamma Quadrant.
Well, I guess Deep Space Nine makes an easier costume than the Enterprise. Love the light effects though.
48. Guess these two people are from Scotty’s family.
After all, they’re both wearing kilts. Then again, you never saw Scotty wearing one but that’s probably for the best.
49. Here we have Captain Picard on bridge fighting the Teddy Borg.
I have to admit, this adorable. However, this little squirt will probably end up getting assimilated though.
50. Tending the bar on Enterprise is Guinan.
She’s played by Whoopi Goldberg in TNG. Still, she’s said to be the person whom Q most fears. Also, she’s of much better use than Troi.
51. Seems like Captain Kirk can’t get enough of those green girls.
Well, given Kirk’s reputation, this should be expected. His green girl fetish is a running gag in the new Star Trek movies, which I think is appropriate.
52. Guess Lieutenant Uhura has a call from bridge to answer at this time.
Well, she’s a communications officer so what do you expect. Still, she does get to land on a few planets, however.
53. Didn’t know Deep Space Nine had its own baseball team.
At first I didn’t know what to think of this until I realized the “Niniers” reference was to Deep Space Nine. Also, giving Sisko’s love of baseball, this is appropriate.
54. On Star Trek: Voyager, Seven of Nine is easily the most remembered.
Then again, she’s probably the main reason why most people remember the show at all. Not to mention, she tends to be very popular among teenage boys as well as 18-35 year olds.
55. Of course, sometimes Kirk’s presence can be made known for months at at time.
Yep, Kirk was here all right. And it seems like he wasn’t using protection at the time. Kirk probably has kids all over the galaxy.
56. That man is undead, Jim.
He says so himself. Most likely died when Kirk and some officers visited a planet. Not sure how he became a zombie.
57. As Bones, Dr. McCoy is the Enterprise’s Chief Medical Officer.
He also knows when a man is dead, Jim. Also, don’t make him do stuff beyond his job because he’s a doctor not a________.
58. Looks like Captain Kirk is having some trouble with tribbles.
By the way, “Trouble with Tribbles” one of the best Star Trek episodes ever. It’s also hilarious. Remember tribbles make terrible pets.
59. These Klingons decided to show up in their casual wear.
However, the man’s clothing does have the Klingon logo on them. Still, for Klingons, these two seem so friendly.
60. Guess these Klingons have a sensitive side after all.
Nevertheless, they’re dressed up as Imperial Stormtroopers in tutus and tiaras. Hilarious.
61. This Seven of Nine looks absolutely stunning.
Not bad looking for someone who’s been assimilated by the Borg and survived. Then again, she was probably Voyager’s resident fanservice personnel.
62. This little Spock seems like a logical tyke.
Now this is so adorable. Love the little pointy ears. Still, remember that he’s half-human though.
63. Oh, look, here comes the Redshirt brigade.
Whenever one of these beams down to the planet, chances are they’re never coming back. Well, at least for the men. Not sure about the women.
64. As far as Star Trek villains go, none is more menacing than the dreaded Khan.
Had to include this since Wrath of Khan is one of the best known Star Trek movies ever. Was famously played by Ricardo Montalban.
65. Guess Gorn decided to dress for the occasion this time.
Unfortunately, for us, you won’t be seeing him fighting Kirk any time soon. Still, Kirk’s fight with Gorn is pretty funny.
66. You might not know her, but at one time Yeoman Janice Rand was seen as Kirk’s main squeeze.
Here she is with a tribble and a basket weave (on her head). And yes, her hair was like that in the original series, too.
67. As chief engineer of the Enterprise, there was never a problem Montgomery Scott couldn’t fix.
However, the phrase “Beam me up, Scotty,” was never uttered on the show. Still, he’s one of the few redshirts on the series to survive planet landings and live to tell the tale.
68. On TNG, Q is an entity of mystery and a formidable foe.
Q is part of a race of godlike aliens who live outside a plane of existence. However, though he plays pranks, he’s not a malicious character. In later shows, he’s more of a teacher.
69. So I guess this redshirt isn’t really dead after all.
He’s just been seriously injured by aliens and has been treated in sick bay. So it’s no fuss.
70. Seems like Worf really tries to set a good example to children.
Actually I think this is a dad with his kids. But Worf is a very popular character in Star Trek since he’s a Klingon and a badass.
71. Sure Klingons kill but they won’t eat you.
Seems like this Klingon has a sense of humor. Nevertheless, Klingon warriors can be quite aggressive and ruthless.
72. Speaking of Klingons, here’s a Klingon Hello Kitty.
I know it’s kind of a weird mashup since Hello Kitty doesn’t seem to live to Klingon warrior preferences. Still, this is funny.
73. Where would a Klingon warrior ever be without his signature weapon?
Not sure what this weapon is called. But it sure looks quite badass. Now I see why Klingons are popular among Star Trek fans.
74. For fans of the original series, who could forget Kirk’s fight with Gorn?
Now the Gorn and Kirk episode might’ve been poignant for the time. But it hasn’t aged very well within the last decades.
75. Guess Evil Spock is sharing a dance with Evil Uhura.
Okay, I might see this pairing. Still, while I’m fine with Uhura and Spock, I am not okay with them getting together in the reboot movies. Because I just don’t see them getting together.
76. You know that dog with the horn from the original series? Well, there’s a costume for that.
Man, that looks so freakish it’s unreal. Still, that original series didn’t seem to have much of a budget on visual effects as far as I’m concerned.
77. Borg assimilation: fun for the whole family.
Yes, this is a Borg family. Even the baby’s teddy wasn’t immune. Resistance is futile.
78. Apparently, Klingons know how to dress for a wedding.
However, would you want to attend a Klingon wedding on Star Trek? No. Seriously, I don’t want to know what a Klingon wedding is like.
79. Now won’t you take a look at this San Francisco Worf.
Still, I don’t think I’d call Worf a hippie beyond any stretch. But I think this is quite funny.
80. When these Redshirts are hit, they just keep going.
However, on the original series, redshirts don’t survive wounds like these on the planets. In fact, they usually don’t come back.
81. I’m afraid she’s dead, Jim.
Here we see a redshirt doing what redshirts do best: dying on the planet. That’s what they mostly do.
82. For little ones, these little Starfleet costumes would do nicely.
Let’s see, there’s Kirk, Spock, and I hope the kid in red is Scotty. If not, then I think he’s doomed. Still, these are so cute.
83. Of course, as we all know about Ferengi women, clothes are seen as obscene.
Nevertheless, on Earth, their naughty bits had to be censored. Still, this is funny.
84. Seems like we have a new bombshell on deck.
And I’m sure Kirk is going to have his way with the new science officer by the end of this episode. Still, that’s a pretty good costume.
85. Here I introduce to you Data with the Borg Queen.
Heard they got together in the movies, don’t ask. Still, the Borg Queen is a very insidious villain in the franchise.
86. Heard of Sherlock Holmes and Watson? How about Data and LaForge?
I think they did have a Sherlock Holmes episode. However, I’m sure they’re sleuthing skills are very astute at least in the engineering room.
87. Kirk and Spock are such best buds that you can see them on a bicycle built for two.
And apparently, it’s fire powered. Still, you have to love this or at least think it’s clever.
88. Let me guess, that’s Chakotay from Voyager.
Because the guy is best known for being No. 2 Janeway, having a tattoo on his face to show his Native American heritage, and ending up with Seven of Nine. That’s all you need to know about him.
89. Looks like the sun god Apollo decided to pay a visit.
He may be a Greek god but he was featured in a Star Trek episode. Also kind of a jerk by the way, not unlike his mythological counterpart.
90. Looks like tribbles seem to get along with Romulans quite nicely.
However, according to “Trouble with Tribbles,” tribbles don’t like Klingons at all. This is why the tribbles were sent aboard a Klingon ship in the end.
91. This Spock tyke knows his Vulcan signs.
Being half-human, you’d have to expect Spock being bullied while he was a child. Still, this is adorable.
92. In original series, some alien costumes tend to be rather outlandish.
I don’t know what this alien is supposed to be but she’s kind of a cross between a supermodel and an Ooomah Loompah. She also appears scantily clad in tin foil.
93. Whenever there’s a problem, this cat LaForge could always fix it.
Yes, it’s a cat dressed as La Forge as you can see. I’m sure some people might find this incredibly cute.
94. In a parallel universe, you have Captain Kirk with his Marlena.
In the normal Star Trek universe, Marlena only lasted an episode. But so do most of Kirk’s girlfriends.
95. While Klingon men are fearsome warriors, you can’t underestimate Klingon women either.
Because they can be very aggressive and are also expected to be warriors. So don’t try to mess with them.
96. On TNG, where would Riker be without Counselor Troi?
I don’t have the slightest idea. However, TNG would’ve probably been a better show without either of them.
97. Seems like this Vulcan girl of Starfleet has a lovely dress and jacket to match.
Sure she’s supposed to be a female Spock. But I think this is a lovely dress. I kind of wish the women on the original series would wear something more like it.
98. Seems like joining Starfleet is a tradition for this family.
Then again, in later Star Trek shows, people do have their families on board with them. Still, this is adorable.
99. Guess this Starfleet officer will suffer a fate worse than death.
He’s probably going to be assimilated some time soon. And I’m sure any resistance he tries to put up will be futile.
100. Guess these green women are part of the Starfleet entertainment company.
Still, if they were in the original series, I’m sure Kirk will try to hook up with one of them. Nevertheless, I think their costumes are quite creative.
