Back in the '80s our local Star Trek group decided to design uniforms for ourselves, and headed off to a fabric store. The clerk kept trying to steer us to the shiny red material, and couldn't understand why we kept telling her no, we absolutely could not have red uniforms, because we didn't want to die. Seemed obvious to us. Hawkman... hmm. That's a character in F. M. Busby's Hulzein Saga novels, right?
