US Navy flight deck crews use at least seven colors [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform...vy#Flight_deck]. Nice picture there, too.
Yeah, but you have to reflect the fact that this is a TV show where there were only seven regulars who wore uniforms as standard. To get more than three - or four at a push - colours in, you have to go down the TWoK route and reduce the division colours to a small detail, or else it looks chaotic to the average viewer. Imagine the TWoK uniforms in division colours rather than maroon.

[Also, there would be the extra cost of making uniforms for extras and guest stars to account for...]
