    I work in a compounding pharmacy, so it would be Sciences blue. My scrubs are Caribbean blue and my lab coat is white.

    Some days I spend a great deal of time working on third-party billing rather than the actual practice of compounding, though, so I don't know if those days would fit me more under a Trek Operations umbrella.

    Um, I'm sort of middle management for an engineering-type of firm. So let's go with gold, and probably some Lt. or LtCdr pins. :)

    Not a lot of us Red Shirts about, though I trained to be Gold (Electronic Engineering). I ended up Red.

    I hope you're not one of those compounding companies.
    New England Compounding Center incident

    Main article: New England Compounding Center meningitis outbreak
    In October 2012, an outbreak of fungal meningitis was reported in the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention traced the outbreak to contaminated medication used for epidural steroid injections. The medication was packaged and marketed by the New England Compounding Center, a compounding pharmacy in Framingham, Massachusetts. On October 15, the FDA issued a warning that two more drugs, a steroid and a product used during heart surgery, may also have been contaminated. The investigation also includes fungal infections associated with injections in a peripheral joint space, such as a knee, shoulder or ankle.[23]

    As for my uniform, my military job was more like a MACO, so either TOS RED or like the ENT MACO uniforms, camouflage. (Actually, back then we mostly wore black fatigues.)

    Nice. We have some things in common. I was an artillery officer with the 25th ID but got out in 09. I work as a contract specialist for the Naval Facilities Engineering Command now. Ops/Engineering yellow for me as well.

    Software technical support, so probably yellow for me.

    I'd be the poor schmuck troubleshooting why the Holodeck went haywire again.

    Oh, I'd be a gold/green (Still can't imagine how anyone can not see those shirts as green), but I'd totally max out at two pips.

    I'm broccoli all the way. Technically brilliant, socially incompetent.

    Thank god, no. Their failure to do the job properly was very disturbing. We're actually preparing to send two other techs for a new round of aseptic technique training partly because of recent incidents at other compounding pharmacies (and more generally on the idea that more and better training is always a good thing).
