More Star Trek Sequel Set Images: Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana Spotted In New Uniform

TrekMovie is back and there are more of those leaked spy pics from the Star Trek sequel production. This time actors Zoe Saldana (Uhura) and John Cho (Sulu) have been spotted, both in a uniform not seen in the 2009 Star Trek film. Check out a few of the images below but beware of spoilers.


These boots are made for walking with Cho and Saldana on Star Trek set

Here are just some of the latest images of Cho and Saldana on the Star Trek set.

As noted before, ignore the coats, which are just issued to all cast by Bad Robot and are not seen on screen. But we can see a bit of what is going on underneath. Both Saldana and Cho appear to be wearing the same type of uniform, but this is not one seen in the 2009 Star Trek film. While grey like the uniforms worn by instructors at the academy, this does not have the same lines and the boots are certainly different. If you look closely at Saldana’s, you can see a touch of red on her right collar. Cho’s uniform appears to have a different shade of grey or silver at the same location.

By the way. It is possible that the uniform Simon Pegg was wearing in the video he shot from the set last month was also of this new type. It is hard to tell as we only got a glimpse of the collar.

UPDATE: Not the new main uniforms

Some have speculated that these uniforms are replacing the classic Trek-inspired colorful uniforms we saw in the 2009 Star Trek movie. However, the last set of photos already showed us both Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana wearing the same standard uniforms from that previous film. And in the above mentioned video, Karl Urban’s blue tunic could also be seen. These grey uniforms are just some kind of variant, possibly for some kind of special mission.

One of the nice things about having a big budget is that we get to see the characters in various different outfits. Past Trek films tended to have little variety in wardrobe, with some actors appearing in the same outfits from film to film. 

You can see more of these photos from at and JustJared.

Great… another style of ST unforms for us fans/collectors to wear!

Sing the praises of pants!

March 19, 2012 11:51 am

I wonder if there is a headpiece made of shower curtain to go with that uniform.

The way the bottom of it fits to the boot for some reason reminds me of the suit in Naked Time.

What – boring grey? and everybody in pants? So it seems that patriarchy still rules, even in the 23rd century. They have to be kidding.

TOS uniforms spoke energy, colour, variety, individuality (as in various departments, whether they be science, administration etc were allowed their own identity). As an ecology guy called Schumacher once wrote – “Variety is not the spice of life. It is the necessity of life” and I think that refers to most, if not all, aspects of life. He has yet to be proved wrong.

Q came back. He was so bored with Picard he transported the whole kit n’ caboodle to the 23rd Century. Now they are in the Next Gen reality where there’s a Vulcan (plot point resolved). Kirk has to say “Make it so…” before the Enterprise can warp out.

“TOS uniforms spoke energy, colour, variety, individuality (as in various departments, whether they be science, administration etc were allowed their own identity)”

This was basically to help NBC advertise its color broadcasting capabilities, not any special in-universe reason (other than probably a 3 second discussion on “Well we’ll do this and have all the command people one color, science, etc. This should make NBC happy.”

But I wouldn’t worry about it though, uniforms wouldn’t be the only thing on screen.

March 19, 2012 12:00 pm

They look too cheesy to be anything but wetsuits of some type.

March 19, 2012 12:04 pm

The new uniforms look sort of like they’re from Galaxy Quest. ..I hope they don’t wear these full time. Still have high hopes for the film though.

#8 – To be honest, I did not need to know that. The fact that they put these characters in different coloured uniforms is neither here nor there for me. I still love the style and colour and since then SF uniforms have either become drab and/or too militaristic looking.

When I first watched Star Trek, it was on a little b/w TV set. It was not until the early 80s that I saw my first TOS episode in colour, although I had seen colour pictures of the three main characters in their uniforms. I liked those pictures I saw in the NZ Listener – not sure but I think they were in that magazine.

Finally, a bit of common sense! Glad to see that Uhura will wear a real uniform instead of that skimpy dress. I realize that they were paying homage to the old series with it, but in practical terms, such a uniform is really insane in a working environment.

March 19, 2012 12:24 pm

#17, I am not a wet blanket just frustrated that this once great site is getting to be unreliable for Trek News.

These are probably special mission uniforms, something better for a hostile environment, say Ceti Alpha V.

No Trek sites is more reliable than this site because this site is having far more reliable sources than these sites.

#22 – If we are seeing what could be Starfleet uniforms, I can see wearing them in a hostile environment as being a practical option, but not as everyday wear on a properly functioning environmentally controlled state-of-the-art USS Enterprise.

March 19, 2012 12:44 pm

I’ve a feeling these are something JJ Abrams have made the cast wear while on walkabout so as photos don’t leak of the real things. He’s been known to go to those kinds of measures before. It’s akin to carmakers putting dazzle camouflage on their prototypes so people with telephoto lenses can’t identify them.

March 19, 2012 12:46 pm

#24 – The future will be hawter.

March 19, 2012 1:07 pm

#6 – The TOS uniforms were campy looking space pajamas.

Nick Meyer had it right for the TOS films.

TNG finally got it right with the FIRST CONTACT uniforms, which DS9 adopted.

I wish the new TREK would be more like those, but I think these “new” uniforms are “Away Team” type outfits.

March 19, 2012 1:11 pm

These are outdoor uniforms, seen and worn in TOS “The Cage”.

March 19, 2012 1:15 pm

I was wondering if this “reliable” site was up anymore…Glad to see it is…If I saw SHAT on Psyche one more day…. I thought J.J. was begging to have all these photo leaks not shown..For someone who is so upset about them going over the web, he doesn’t seem to be doing anything about it…
for us fans though..this is great…I was beginning to think that all of these shots were something J.J . was doing to throw us all off.. that seems like something he would do?….Keep up the good work Anthony!

Oh man…if these ARE the Galaxy Quest uniforms….I will LOL HARD! And Welcome Back Anthony…we thought you died or something, glad to see you around again!

March 19, 2012 1:23 pm

I like what is going on. They look like away team uniforms. Very practical. The 2009 uniforms were based on the sixties series uniforms. Those were a product of their times. Colors were emphasized because of the advent of color TV. The women wore mini-skirts. I actually like the uniforms from “The Menagerie.”

Still, it looks like a nice break from the sixties series uniforms.

March 19, 2012 1:34 pm

It’s a shame the jackets aren’t part of the uniform. They almost resemble a proper Navy Pea Coat.

March 19, 2012 1:43 pm

Anthony, nice to see you back, even if it is with old news. Hope whatever the problem was is resolved and it’s full steam ahead to the next movie!

Why not just have them in NASA-type flight suits, with TOS-style primary colour jerseys or tees underneath? Kinda like what Enterprise almost did.

Are you listening, Bob?

March 19, 2012 2:27 pm

I I were JJ Abrams, I would have the cast walkaround in the open wearing beekeepers outfits just to mess with photographers.

March 19, 2012 2:39 pm

33. Agreed.

March 19, 2012 2:39 pm

I bet this is their new “commando” uniforms. We never got to see those in TOS, but they wore them in ST:V and rarely in the TNG era.

BTW, wonder what Cho is listening to?

March 19, 2012 2:56 pm

Welcome back, Anthony!

As for this gray uniform, remember that the first leaked photos had Uhura in the red miniskirt brandishing a phaser. She did not seem to be on the ship, so one cannot say por certain that the red mini is her day uni and the gray suit is for away missions. The data are too meager.

March 19, 2012 4:48 pm

I agree with you–in part–on all except the uniforms Nick Meyer adopted for TOS movies. I thought they were way too militarist, and were a lift from Horatio Hornblower–one of Roddenberry’s clear influences for TREK. The only thing Meyer missed were the naval hats. Lol. The uniforms were way too obvious, and too much of a caricature of the seafaring, nautical-like adventure Gene and company were going for with STAR TREK.

The shirts of TOS television series kinda recalled pajama’s, but not the pants. At least the producers were attempting to be creative, and not relying on the easy and standard military-look so many sci-fi projects–past and present–go for.

I still say the TOS pants, with the bell-bottom-like flange cuffs at the end of each pants leg–mixed with boots, were kick-ass awesome, and totally original. No one can ever copy it and not pay homage to TOS. That’s for sure.

March 19, 2012 4:49 pm

Hello again everyone. Just like I predicted, no comments from Bob Orci since the first of these leaked photographs were posted.

I doubt we will even get a working title until the trailer is released.
