Lt. Saavik Uniform from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Presented below are some detailed photos of a screen used maroon Starfleet Officer's uniform worn by actress Kirstie Alley in the role of Lieutenant Saavik from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).

Saavik was developed specifically for the Star Trek films featuring the original series crew, and was the only new character to appear in three of the pictures - The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock, and The Voyage Home.

Many thanks to long time Star Trek fan and collector Paolo in Italy for his kind permission to display these photos.
