United Federation Starfleet uses technology and customized uniforms based on the the First Contact / Insurrection / Nemesis / Post-Nemesis time line. Upon the completion of your UF Starfleet Academy periods, a set of uniforms will be issued to you according to your Branch of choice and rank, consistent with this era. Each uniform has a specific purpose and occasion when it may be worn.

This policy is the guideline to when and how a uniform can and cannot be worn. It is expected of every UFS Officer or Enlisted member to follow this policy when on-duty and at official functions.

These Uniforms are all available for Metaverse Chapters. These are not Available Via Mail Order
