    When Mork and Mindy go to Ork for their honeymoon, Mindy get arrested, the Orkan police uniforms are the STTMP Klingon uniforms. Robin Williams picked out his famous spacesuit it out of a paper bag in the paramount costume department.

    Look here around the 9:30 mark

    Good catches...makes sense. Didn't Shatner appear in a Kirk uniform in one scene? I suppose that might've been a leftover as well.

    Wow, I wonder if that's the same triangle for the Mork series jumpsuit. Happy Days didn't have black trim, but series version does.

    I also wonder if the series version is an entirely new suit. The Happy Days one is surely a match to Colonel Green's, though.

    On one of those Happy Days specials Gary Marshall said John Byner was who they originally wanted for Mork - the spacesuit was tailored to his size (he's only 5'6 so Williams was popping out of the thing - they built him a new one for his second appearance on Happy Days.

    Just a tid bit - the black stripe added to his triangle was some kind of achievement mark for his mission to the 50's.
