Well, seeing as the first movie started with an aggressive attack that clearly made Starfleet more militaristic resulting in a different look of the Enterprise... it seems to fit that they'd go with that type of uniforms... even if they are just parade/dress uniforms for social appearances.

Has to be a dress/ceremonial uniform of some sort because other pics have already shown the same uniforms from 2009 Trek.

Even in modern military, hats like that are never part of the standard working uniform, they're always reserved for dress uniforms (with the rare exception where the daily working uniform is the dress uniform, like embassy guards and the like).

There's always been variations based on department as well (Scotty and Chekov have always worn different colors). In all of Trek, that's never changed, and I see no reason for it to change now.

So I'm going to jump on the "It's a dress uniform" bandwagon. We'll probably only see those costumes for a few minutes.

I certainly don't see Starfleet there.

I do see a heavy Starship Troopers influence. :rolleyes






And forgive me, but I was just watching "The Cage" the other night- where is Pike's cap? In his quarters?

This is clearly just a clever ruse to throw us costumers of the track.

Even JJ would never put hats into his Trek uniforms.

Right?

I heard they wear them at the end of the movie when Kirk is promoted to Fleet Admiral for saving the Earth from Khan.

Yes. It's on a table built onto the top of his super advanced 23 century console TV

And we've never seen hats in sci fi before?
Not in Star Trek.


And I'd hardly call that cap on Pike's tv console a "precedent"; you could barely see it, and he never wore it.


All I see is Starfleet being represented as a military force. And while this has probably been debated to death, Starfleet is not the military. It can act as Earth's defence force when necessary, but its primary mission is exploration.

Starfleet becoming militant is like the equivalent of NASA being used to fight aliens.



Yeah, yeah, yeah... they did it in Wrath of Khan- naval military looking uniforms, much more comportment etc.
