From Article:

Operations division
Ops uniforms were a warm shade of red in most variations, although it has been noted that some personnel wore beige uniforms reminiscent of earlier styles
At least two "modern" (black-collared) beige uniforms were seen in this era, suggesting a possible variant.

This needs to be referenced. I don't recall if/when a beige variant w/ a black collar was seen. --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 15:29, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Commander Hansen and Lieutenant Harold. -- Captain M.K.B. 15:55, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Shall I add Episode references to the article? --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 15:58, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Added --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 16:29, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I thnk this article actually needs a lot more references. I don't think every uniform mentioned was seen in every episode. So, perhaps putting an episode reference at the end of each uniform type would work? Since it's been a while since I've seen TOS, I can't do it.--Lifeisharsh20 22:47, 18 January 2007 (UTC)lifeisharsh20

Jumpsuits Edit

I'm a bit colorblind, so can someone confirm what's goin on with jumpsuit colors? I found 3 examples from post-pilot TOS:

1 is obviously a science division jumpsuit, and an example of division-colored jumpsuits. 2 doesn't seem like a division jumpsuit. It looks like the same kind of garment Connors is wearing in 3, and therefore looks like a 'generic' jumpsuit alternative. It's some murky color that could be either brown or green to my disfunctional eyes. -- Harry talk 15:14, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Its a yellowish green to me. Since yellow and green in other uniforms distinguish command division, and the other jumpsuits each correspond to a division (blue-sci, red-ops) seems to me this isn't generic, but a command division uniform.
Especially when you consider how much more yellow it looks in this screencap -- Captain M.K.B. 18:48, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Assignment PatchEdit

Where do we see the assignment patch with the little red cross used? I've never seen that one before. Federation 08:37, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Nurse Christine Chapel wears it in all of her TOS appearances, for example. --Jörg 08:44, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Except in some appearances she wears a patch with a different "pointed" cross, and sometimes her cross is sewn over another insignia. -- Captain MKB 15:33, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Arex Edit

Would his three-armed uniform count as a variant that should be noted? Or not? --Golden Monkey 16:27, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

Additional UniformsEdit

There are other uniforms seen in the original series not mentioned in this article. For instance what about the field jackets worn on Talos IV in The Cage/The Managerie, as well as the dress jacket worn over gold tunic by the Starfleet officer in the Orion Slave girl dance scene of the same episode?

You would be thinking of these. - Archduk3 06:37, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Female underwear? Edit

"The Enemy Within" had better views of those, [1] but I not sure those shorts are exactly "underwear", as they are worn over the pantyhose... (superman style) --Pseudohuman (talk) 14:41, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

Those were definitely shorts. This series was made during the 60's and mini-dresses with matching shorts were the style back then (as were those bee hive hairdos and go-go boots). Change the Federation colors to some psychedelic plaid with fringe and you've got a 60's hippie chick. The preceding unsigned comment was added by GoodOlDave (talk • contribs).

Green or GoldEdit

Will someone please tell me, which is CANNON. the command shirts were green but lighting made them look gold. So is green the cannon color, or is gold the cannon color? Gold has been accepted but green is the actual color of the uniforms?-- 14:26, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia, cannons were mostly made of bronze at first in the west, so I would say that "gold" is more accurate than green, though I guess some of these cannons could be considered green today. - Archduk3 22:09, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
In case the IP doesn't understand, it's "canon", not "cannon". 31dot (talk) 22:16, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

You know what the "IP" meant. -- 01:49, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

To answer the question: When you read Section 1, Divison Colors, you will find following information from the DS9 Episode: "why the captain wore a "gold" uniform and the engineer a red one". In the Epsiode, Sisko explains to Bashir the color code and uses the word "gold", thus "gold" is canon.--langweiler (talk) 17:52, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
