Alright so we need a fleet uniform, especially to wear at fleet events. A good idea was brought up to have a contest for this so that's what we will do. Please read this whole post before submitting an idea.
First of all, you can submit your ideas until February 4th. Sometime on the 5th I will lock this thread. So from now until the 4th is the submission period. After that I will create a poll which you can vote in. That will probably be open for another week or 2. I'll decide when the time comes. The plan is to have a fleet uniform before the STO Academy's 2 year anniversary on February 22nd.
You can only use uniform options that everyone has access to. Anything from the C-Store is not allowed. C-Store items will either have a C-Point price next to it or a check mark if you already purchased it.
Do not add a combadge or rank to the uniform because everyone will want to have their own.
Don't forget to add the fleet logo to the uniform.[/list:u]
Everyone can participate. Just go to the tailor at one of the stations and edit your uniform. Create something that you think would look nice for the fleet then click the save button at the bottom. You do not need to purchase it for your character. Don't forget to press SAVE . You can also go through the create a character process and save it that way.
You will also need to take a screenshot of your uniform. All you have to do is press the Prt Scr (Print Screen) button on your keyboard and the game will automatically save a screenshot for you.
The location of your save file and screenshot depends on your operating system:
Windows XP = C:\Program Files\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots
Windows Vista = C:\Program Files\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots (it could also be the Windows 7 path)
Windows 7 = C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots
You can upload the screenshot directly to this thread. If for some reason it isn't giving you an option at the bottom to upload an image then let me know so I can fix it.
After the submission period is over I will create a poll. The winning uniform will become the new fleet uniform and the creator can send me the save file.
Any uniform that is not using standard options (non-cstore options) will not be considered for the contest. Remember if it has a check mark or a c-store price next to it then you cannot use it. If you are unsure feel free to ask me before submitting.
I would prefer only 1 submission from each person, but if you have two ideas that is fine as well. I won't accept more than 2 from a person. Please keep in mind that a male and female variation of the same uniform is considered only 1 submission not 2. You do not need to create one for male and one for female, I can easily convert it if I have to.
I think I covered everything. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Sorry for the long thread!
I want to apologize ahead of time, I forgot to remove the comm badge on most of these pictures and on one, to remove the rank. Also, I noticed I overlooked the fleet logo on most of these after I got them all cropped. You still should get a general idea of how the uniform should look.
As a side note, I edited the brightness and contrast, so the colors might not be 100% accurate.
Includes options for fatigues, duty and dress uniforms for officers, command, and flag officers.

Sans, there are too many different choice there. Only two entries for a person and there are about 6 or 7 different ones (I'm grouping the different career colors together into one entry each). Please pick two styles out of all of them and submit those. You don't need to show it with the different career colors if you don't want to. If you need help let me know.
