Re: Divisions, Insignia, Uniforms and Assignment Patches

It might also be that the colors are unrelated to divisions or lines of work, and instead designate degrees of command authority: blue for staff officers, red (TNG gold, TOS pilot brown, STXI something else, you get the idea), for restricted line officers and gold for unrestricted line officers. There's some inconsistency between character specs and uniform color in both cases, but more with the "divisions" interpretation than with the "authority" one. Although the "authority" issue involves the whopper of Spock...
