Re: Uniforms color switch between TOS and TNG

The change from TOS blue for science to orange for ST:TMP (and to a mint green for medical) was to avoid the solid blue patches and epaulets from confusing the then-newish bluescreen technology.

Similarly, when they went back to blue for science/medical in TNG, they shifted it to a blue-green for the same reason.
Didn't it start off as pretty clearly & specifically blue, and got greener with every revision until you hit the ST:FC uniforms, whose undershirt was more green than blue...
