Re: Divisions, Insignia, Uniforms and Assignment Patches
I never thought about it, but division and department don't necessarily have to be the same. An officer could be assigned to a science or services department but still be in command division, or a command officer could be attached to a sciences department, or whatever. The badge and the shirt wouldn't have to match.
At the time, probably no one gave it a second thought.
Or the red/blue/yellow each had command/science/engineering specialists in them. or vice versa.
