Re: Why is command wearing blue?
It just occured to me on board the Kelvin that command (George Kirk, Robau) are wearing blue.
Was this discussed before? It must have been... but looks like Starfleet did the old color switcheroo for departments in that time period.
There was a thread months ago, before the movie hit the theaters (try a search for "The Kelvin's uniforms" if you want to check it out.) I think most people just figured that 25 years was long enough that a couple of changes in uniform design and departmental color scheme could have taken place between then and the time of the episodes of the original series.
Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming
that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
