Standard Duty Uniform
There are two Standard Duty Varients: the v-neck and the high neck varients. Both are available for the crew to use at any time. In general, the v-neck varient is more commonly worn, but the high neck is more common during diplomatic missions. The uniforms are color coded according to division: Yellow = Command, Helm Red = Security, Operations, Engineering Blue = Science, Medical Certain divisions vary in color assignment. Strategic Operations varies based on the background of the officer, always being yellow or red. Intelligence also varies, often red, yellow, or black. Exchange Officers can be assigned in any direction, frequently black.
The Mission Jacket is a possible accessory which can be added to the Standard Duty Uniform. Though intended to be used on away missions, many officers chose to wear them aboard ship as well. Bearing several pockets on the exterior and interior, the mission jacket allows for officers to carry more equipment than the standard uniform. Its pockets also allow for the concealment of certain vital pieces of gear that might be too visible on the utility belt.
The Starfleet Dress Uniform is always in a state of flux, but the current uniform is a grey suit-like outfit, with rank stripes on the wrists and an optional ceremonial hat. The "Dress Greys" denote division via the version of the Starfleet Insignia displayed on the front.
Tactical Exo Suits
Useful as both an exo suit and a temporary hazmat outfit, the Tactical Exo Suit serves a wide range of purposes. Intentionally built to be flexible and durable, the suit is capable of taking some abuse and still maintaining its airtight seal. The suits parachute also allows it to be used in suborbital drops. Though not as truly protective as a full Hazmat suit, many crews find that this is more useful than its more cumbersome cousin. The Tactical Exo Suit comes in three colors to denote division. Since they are not intended to be personal, the suits do not denote rank.
The Starfleet Flight suit is a varient intend for use in climates that aren't temperate enough to wear the Standard Duty Uniform. The exterior is intended to act as both water repellant and windbreaker. Often worn during colder seasons on Federation worlds, it is also frequently worn by shuttle crews, as it is more protective should the shuttle be forced to land in a less hospitable climate. The Flight Suit displays division on stripes near the shoulders. However, due to its less personalized nature, the suits do not denote rank.
Starbase Duty Uniform
The Starbase variant of the Standard Duty Uniform is intended to differentiate between starship crew and station crew. The exception to this is the command crew of a vessel docked at the Starbase, who are expected to adopt the station unifrom while docked. Because the Commanding Officers are part of the Admiral's extened crew, they are expected to wear a uniform bearing their vessel's patch as well as the station patch. Division is denoted via the same color methodology, on the shoulders and arms. Rank is denoted via pips on the neck.
