Lot Essay

Star Trek: The Original Series aired on the NBC network. NBC was at the time was owned by RCA, the company that owned many of the basic patents on the then-new technology of color television. It's therefore not surprising that original series costume designer William Ware Theiss was asked to make his Starfleet uniforms vividly colorful.

These original-style Starfleet uniforms nevertheless remain a highly-recognizable symbol of the beloved first Star Trek.
