Ok, now we need desperately a wizard of the Photoshop...
The colors run parallel to the WNMHGB positions
Helmsman Mitchell and Navigator Kelso are in coral
usual consider the color to be "sand."
I'm glad they changed up the color scheme after the TOS Pilots. It would've been impossible to tell the difference between gold and tan on Black & White TVs. It's bad enough with Color.
between greenish-gold and tan
I always assumed the TOS uniforms all being the same shade of gray in black and white was intentional to help promote color TVs, so it would be obvious what you were missing.
Which is why switching to Red instead of Tan was the right move. If I was living in the '60s, I'd be disappointed if I found out there wasn't too much difference between gold and tan. I'm sure the intention was good. In the producers and directors minds, there would be a difference between green and tan. But when it comes out as gold and tan, most people aren't going to pick up on the difference. I didn't notice it was two different colors until two decades ago when someone else pointed it out.
Is that not a scientist?
We had one, between seasons 1 and 2 there were pics of the Disco crew wearing the Discoprise unis floating about here and Facebook...
Yep, all through the seventies I thought it was just gold and blue - and I had cable TV plus the WNMHGB photonovel...
This is the main one I've seen floating around....
It wasn't that one. It was a posed shot, 'shopped from a publicity shot of the cast posing with their medals from the finale.
That's the one!
Hoping to see these in use come season 3. My eyes are done with the blue overload and would enjoy the splash of color!

I really hope we get the colourful uniforms in the next season!
I never noticed that Tilly, Airiam and Owo were wearing the skirt version of the uniform in that shot before.
It occurs to me we haven't see nall of these in action, yet. Number One didn't have the miniskirt, so that's not hers. We haven't seen a blue miniskirt yet, either. Although they did promise us a guy in a skirt by the end of the season, so maybe it's Spock
In the original shot they aren't. Just whomever photoshopped it made it look like they had skirt variants on.
