Saldana in 2009’s ‘Star Trek.’ Hopefully the Enterprise isn’t drafty.
Space might be the final frontier, but at least it’s fashion forward. Zoe Saldana has taken to Instagram to post a shot of her redesigned costume for the upcoming Star Trek Beyond — and for the first time in the rebooted franchise, her Uhura is sporting sleeves!
During a visit to the Vancouver set last summer, the actress talked up her new duds, which pay homage to the Enterprise uniform worn by Nichelle Nichols in the original 1960s series.

“I do have my stripes, just like each and every crew member on the ship. I’m very happy about that,” Saldana told Yahoo Movies.
But the sleeves were the only thing that got longer, as she pointed to her skirt with a smile.
“It’s still short. I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ But you know what. I just had twins and the fact that I’m able to wear this little dress seven months later, I’m grateful!”
Saldana and her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego, welcomed sons Cy and Bowie in November 2014.
The 37-year-old actress is currently working on another sci-fi sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Star Trek Beyond, meanwhile, comes out July 22.
