Data's Isolation suit from Star Trek: Insurrection

Data’s Isolation suit from Star Trek: Insurrection

This is a bright red Isolation suit with helmet worn by “Lt. Commander Data” during the thrilling opening action sequence of Star Trek: Insurrection (1998). It’s a complete collection of both “hero” and “stunt double” pieces worn by actor Brent Spiner and his stunt double Brian Avery.

The isolation suit was a type of stealth clothing used by the Federation Starfleet in the 24th century. The suit was equipped with technology that made the person wearing it practically invisible.

The red jumpsuit has a rubber neckline, a Velcro waist for the rubber belt to attach and stirrups for the feet and thumbs to hold the fabric taut. The boots are made of rubber. The belt has stunt double Brian Avery’s name in it.

A gray shoulder piece of the Starfleet uniform as well as the yellow tunic is under the Isolation suit. The tunic has the screen matched burnt collar. Remember the scene when Data removes the helmet and his head is “floating” in the air. You can see the the damaged collar after Data was hit by a Son’a energy pistol.
