A costume featured in the premiere episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Encounter at Farpoint”; wherein the crew of the “Enterprise-D” is challenged by “Q” (John DeLancie) to solve the mystery of the Farpoint Station.
The Post Atomic Horror Soldier Costume was used during the World War III-style courtroom scene. Several soldiers were part of the post-atomic horror era and were present when Q transported Captain Picard, Deanna Troi, Data, and Tasha Yar to the courtroom to stand trial for the crimes of humanity. They fired their weapons to control the crowd and later pulled their weapons on Troi and Data to let Captain Picard answer what Q wanted.
The costume is a set of fabric based armor composed of a body wrap with Velcro seals and multiple equipment pockets on the left front that feature practical Velcro seal flaps; a fabric and armor hood that features a pin backed molded metal rank badge on the forehead; a pair of forearm and a pair of leg coverings and a groin covering. The costume was accompanied by a costumer’s tag that reads ‘21st Century soldier #2, Roy Fussell’.
