Re: TMP's uniforms
Bright color coding probably makes good sense in an environment like the deck of an aircraft carrier, where it can be helpful to know who's who at a distance. It doesn't seem quite as practical in the corridors of a starship.
Unless it's the mid-1960's and you're trying to sell color television sets.
