    Hi Paul, and welcome!

    Some costumes are definitely more challenging than others.

    I'd say a TOS tunic is probably the easiest TREK uniform to tackle. I obviously haven't done pattern(s) for those yet but there are a couple available from other vendors.

    TNG jumpsuits aren't difficult to make, but they can be challenging to properly fit. Skants are pretty straightforward too, once you manage to wrap your brain around their bizarre paneling and overlapping invisible zippers.

    Happy sewing!
