Black uniforms-question about colors


Is there any official (or unofficial) explanation for the different colors of the undershirts/turtlenecks worn under the black uniform jacket/vest? Do the colors represent different branches like the stet (sp?) bar (red=command, green=2nd officer, etc) or different ranks, red=captain, green=Lt. Commander, etc?

just thinking things through....

Not that I know of.

First off it's doubtful that all aliens see the same color spectrum we do lessening the effect. This is why each division of b5 has a symbol as well. When the Narn join security you can see a gunsight pin on them. It also seems too trek. I could be wrong though.

Stat Bar. Short for Status, I think.

You certainly wouldn't color code Rank. Get a promotion and have to buy a new wardrobe?

Sidebar: Something of this nature Does happen in today's US Navy. Not color. When an Enlisted person (non-com) advances to E7 (Chief Petty Officer), the entire uniform changes and the Navy has to buy the newly promoted person a new set of Uniforms. The official allowance for this is just enough to cover a couple sets. Since most people need more than Two changes of clothes, the new Chief has to make a substantial investment in new uniforms.

This only happens Once. Can you imagine the complaints if you had to do it for Every Promotion?

Yes, I like cats too.
