Strange New Worlds Starfleet Duty Uniforms – Medical Lab Coat & Jumpsuit

Sciences Division, circa 2259

For wear by medical personnel while performing their duties in a hospital, laboratory, or assigned facility aboard starships as well as ground and space-basted Starfeleet installations. Like the standards sciences division duty uniform, the assigned division is depicted via the uniform tunic’s prevailing blue color. A lighter shade of blue distinguishes this variant, with the wearer’s rank denoted by the stripes on the tunic’s sleeves.

This uniform is worn by actor Babs Olusanmokun for his portrayal of Doctor M’Benga. It is a creation of costume designers Bernadette Croft and Gersha Phillips and the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds costume department.

Division Fabric (Downloads)

The raised superhero-esque print used on these uniforms sits much more flush with the fabric than the deltas on the Discovery uniforms. I scaled the image to actual size in Illustrator, then traced and averaged the pattern before tiling it. Since the fabric was not laying flat, I only based the traced pattern on stars in the center of the frame and closest to the ruler to minimize distortion. Below are tiled Illustrator files you can download. One large sized 30″x60″ and another smaller 8 1/2″x11″ sized. Print at 100%. Do not scale.

The Details

All I could snag was a shot of the zipper. The magnetic clasp at the top was very strong and I didn’t dare try and open anything further.
