What colour uniform for your job

So let's play a game; think about what kind of work you do doing your current job or current course. What colour uniform would that job entail in the 24th century?

I'm studying city planning so I guess I would be in sciences blue. My undergrad course was in Modern Languages so I think that would also be sciences blue, to go by Hoshi Sato. Uhura's job seemed more technical so I imagine that's why she was in services colours.

TOS-Red Shirt at one and I suppose Gold for the other. By 24th Century standards, it's swapped.

Well given that I'm in management, It would be Red in the 24th Century.

Shelf-stocking grunt. I guess that would put me in a gold uniform.

Re: What colour uniform for your job

In my day job I'm a redshirt.

Literally.

That's the color of my uniform shirt and it fits what I do.

I work in an aquarium, so I guess I'd be science officer blue.

Funny... It looks like the majority of Trek fans are proving to be science nerds. Big surprise there.

Re: What colour uniform for your job

In terms of being disabled and no job, I'd be wearing one of those tedious civilian jumpsuits. In terms of most of my past jobs, which involved computers, it would be blue. However, the Federation is all about doing what you want to do, and my passion was theatre. So maybe it's back to the tedious civilian jumpsuit.

A lot of jobs that are command red in Starfleet, such as pilot or intelligence, would be considered operations in a modern Navy. They're never quite clear where the boundary between red and gold lies.

You could always hire Garak to make you a nice civilian outfit. He does good work.

I get to play fetch with a giant Pacific octopus. If it were up to me, I'd never leave.

I've always wanted to be a Weapons Specialist or Chief. Love them Photon Torpedos.

I work in a warehouse, so that make me a TOS redshirt or a TNG goldshirt.

Yeah but in a warehouse you get to do those forklift races around the aisles, so you're a driver, like Sulu or Paris.

I'm a utility dispatcher for the power company... so that'd fit engineering. Gold for me.
