The prototypes have caused a stir and have widely been compared to uniforms featured in televisions shows such as Star Trek and BattleStar Galactica.

The Space Force’s prototype service dress uniforms have arrived. Gen. John W. “Jay” Raymond, the Chief of Space Operations, introduced them during a Sept. 21 presentation at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber Conference in Oxon Hill, Maryland.

The coats are a very dark blue in color, with an upturned collar and a diagonal row of six buttons that feature the service’s delta logo. The final uniform could be a bit different. Raymond invited suggestions for “comments and tweaks,” which would be reviewed before the uniforms are wear-tested.
