Re: Why is command wearing blue?

^I guess everyone in the Federation was pleased with the TWOK style uniforms for about 80 years, then!

I always found the constant change in uniforms pretty ridiculous. How many times do uniform designs change in real military?
More often then one might think. We just recently switched to using ACU's over the whole of the US military, some units still being phased but for the most part its done. And they are already talking about the next design.

Whole of the the U.S. Army. The other four services have their own BDU regs.

Really? So all the soldiers I saw from different branches while I was stationed at FT. Gordon weren't wearing the Digital Camo? You're right, ACU is Army Combat Uniform, but a rose by any other name and so on and so forth.

The point of my statement is that while the digi-camo is fairly new, they have a new style of combat uniform they are currently testing and talking about making the standard.

Yeah, they seemed to be IT from about 2277 until 2350 give or take. Jack Crusher was still wearing the maroon KHAN jacket as late as his message to his newborn son in 2349.
