    Star Trek Film Series Starfleet Officer's Uniform with Jacket and Shirt Worn by William Shatner as Admiral James T. Kirk. One of the most accomplished and popular feature films to come out of the Star Trek franchise, The Wrath of Khan (1982) was also the first to feature the distinctive scarlet and black duty uniforms that subsequently appeared throughout the original film series as well as several episodes of the various TV spin-offs.
    When Gene Roddenberry created the original series in the '60s, he gave Starfleet a basic military structure but avoided what he called "excessive militarism," keeping such details to a minimum. During production on The Wrath of Khan, director Nicholas Meyer (The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) decided to expand this part of the Trek mythos by writing the dialogue to be more accurate to actual naval protocol and adding such flourishes as a ship's bell and boatswain's whistle, and by introducing redesigned uniforms by costume designer Robert Fletcher.
    This particular costume Starfleet duty uniform features a jacket and undershirt worn by none other than William Shatner in his role as Admiral James T. Kirk, and later modified and worn by Leon Russom, along with the included trousers, as the Starfleet Commander-in-Chief in Star Trek VI.
    The uniform consists of the distinctive maroon jacket, sleeveless white undershirt, black trousers, and black leather belt with metal Starfleet insignia buckle included. The jacket features a Western Costume Co. tag with Shatner's name typed onto it and Russom's name handwritten on it in black felt tip; the slacks have a Paramount Studios tag bearing Russom's name in felt tip sewn into the waistband. The uniform is in overall Excellent condition with the exception of a small hole on the front of the jacket where an insignia pin was attached. Accompanied by a COA from The Hollywood Studio Collection. Photo-match for reference purposes only. For authenticity guaranty see Terms and Conditions.
