Once again I get carried away with the contest itself and not read everything about the event! Sorry.
Will this contest be up for a membership vote or just the Leadership?
Cause I get the feeling the membership should be able to have a say on what they will be wearing ingame as a fleet uniform. Unless you plan on adding all entries into the game?
Then starting on Sunday the 18th, all fleeties can vote on their favourite submissions in a separate thread. How the voting works will be explained in the new thread. For now, let’s focus on participating!
Here are my uniforms. I stayed away from using the Fed red, gold and blue colors to signify departments because, well, we're KDF, not Crayola Federation Power Ranger wannabes. Instead, I used gold to signify Tactical, bronze for Engineering, and silver for Science. Sure, you might say the Federation did that in the Discovery era, but it looks much better in the original Klingon.
Also please note that this uniform was designed to be worn with the sash designating your rank in the Klingon Defense Force, though the rules of the contest do not allow me to include that in my submission. Still, as an act of defiance, I have included pictures of how the uniform looks with a Tier 3 (Commander) sash as an example of how you'd look fully-dressed.
Model: Klingon Defense Force Dahar Master Toj
(First off I am sorry for the low quality of the pictures. I only have a really overworked, underpowered old laptop to use at the moment.)
Warriors of our house do not hide our wounds with dark cloth or armor. We proudly wear the spilled blood of our fellow Warriors. The blood of our own bodies with pride. We enter battle clean, our Armor a blank Canvas ready for the art of glorious battle to be painted across it. We of the house Nagh'reD shall never hide our wounds, our bodies tale the stories of Glorious battle. While other warriors of our Great Empire rage into battle like a dark mass, the Warriors of Nagh'reD surge forward gleaming like the tip of our blades before bloodied with our foes life.
Careful analysis of the battlefield needs of the noble warriors of the House of Nagh'reD has resulted in the following design for their Fleet uniforms. Hand-crafted with only the most supple and durable leather, and dyed with Vantablack NX to inspire awe in your enemies psyche, this uniform will actually feel like your second combat skin! The heat and steam of battle will be readily transmitted from your skin through the quantum tunnelling nanofibers impregnated in its leather to prevent that nasty post-battle soreness and rashes. The subtle yet distinctly discernible elements of red, yellow, and blue lining, makes it straightforward to identify the career specialty of your comrades-in-arms in the heat of battle! Furthermore, Nagh'reD's proud and lavishly rich history is boastingly displayed through the 24 carat gold elements, giving every warrior the perfect visual trinity; fabulous, formidable, fearless!
Whether you're defending Starbase Strength from its enemies in glorious battle, designing a new process to refine Dilithium at Nagh’reD’s asteroid mine, or investigating the unknown and wonderous fauna on Mol’Rihan… this uniform is every warrior’s dream!
