    I only know the Commodore rank, it has a shiny gold rank between the twisty braids.

    Yes. The TOS tech manual that Franz Joseph wrote had the Commodore as 3 equally solid bands (which didn't match what was shown on the show) and an Admiral as 4 bands.

    I made them by pulling the arm pngs into photoshop elements and extracting 1 solid stripe from each side. To make the Commodore, I placed the solid over the slashed Commander band (V4c-tunic-Operations-r5.png and 4KRDvalTunic-Command-r5.png). For the Admiral, I simply added a 4th stripe.

    I have made a number of modifications to the fine work that JamesJAB did. In addition to the flag officer ranks, I have reworked the badges (by both department and ship command) and changed some of the colors also (Weapons/Security is a hunter green, and Support is a grey. At some point, I'll get around to adding a few other colors.)

    In the example below, the Male Admiral is the new Chief of Naval Operations (Figure is Rikishi) talking with the incoming commander of 5th Fleet Commodore Heniemann. (V4 3d Celebrity Lola - http://www.daz3d.com/shop/3d-celebrity-lola, get it, it's good) She gets promoted to Admiral shortly.

    No, the Franz Joseph Star Trek Tech Manual was in Black & White & printed in the 70's.

    slightly off topic, I got my Halloween costume in the mail today. I got a blue JJ-verse uniform shirt and a science division pin. I'm going to do make-up for Trill spots.

    Heh, looks like your klingon wants to "work on" you... with some sharp pointy objects. ;-P

    I'm working on an RPG with some friends set in a post-film era and I'd like some Star Trek-style uniforms but with a sleeker, more modern sci-fi flavor. Any suggestions? I need matching uniforms for M4 and V4.

    the Star Trek Online styles for Valiant and Courageous are not bad.

    Didn't see those--thanks for pointing them out. (Relatively) canon and cool; works for me. ;)

    Any free bridge sets out there? Preferable in the TNG era?

    I'd stick with the DS9/First Contact uniforms. But, that's just me! ;-)

    I like those uniforms, but I want something a little more...mainstream sci-fi in feel. Especially since at least one of my players is not much of a Star Trek fan (at all, really) but liked the JJ Abrams reboot. So he's going to need some...convincing to get him to play in the traditional timeline. ;)

    How does one install and use this one? I've tried several times and I can't find it, let alone use it.

    I'm using Daz 3, byw.

    It won't work in Daz. He has it packaged in a Poser scene file. Someone with the time, will have to import the scene file into Poser and export the obj- making sure all the textures work with it.

    only takes a few minutes and is easy using Poser Debut - the free version of poser
    just load it in and export out
    to double check can then load it in poseray

    but it works fine - just have to increase scale in DS

    I like those too--even if I don't use them as the main uniform, I might offer them as a uniform variant. :)
