Re: Starfleet Command Insignia

According to internal memos there was discussion that the insignia on the Enterprise uniforms were for "starship crews", the ones seen in Charlie X were merchant marine like, etc. There's an amusing memo where Justman rags on Theiss about a mistake re a fellow ship Captain's insignia, but by the point that memo was written they'll already blown it and have different insignias for Decker and Tracy so the die was cast.
