In an alternate reality that was created by Nero's time travel to the year 2233, the Federation Starfleet's evolution was changed. A number of different uniforms were in use in the 2250s, with rank insignia that were similar to, but not identical to, the unchanged reality. (TOS movie: Star Trek) By the end of 2262, the style of the uniform had changed but the rank insignia remained the same.
