I recently purchased a Starfleet uniform VOY/DS9 issue - command division (in other words red) and it came with the com-bagde, rank pins, and all those Star Trek goodies!
Now I want to show the world how much I love Star Trek and decided to wear my uniform out in public and wherever I go while occasionally flashing a Vulcan Salute at passersby.
However it has been brought to my attention, and my concern that certain people who don't share my admiration for Star Trek might seek to cause me bodily harm.
What steps can I take to ensure my safety while wearing a Starfleet uniform in public? Would caring a Type 2 Phaser with tell people I mean business if they mess with me?
