Title: Urgent Advice Needed
Post by: Bryanpoprobson on March 25, 2020, 05:03:44 AM
My wife always buys me a silly present for my birthday, now I have worn the Blue and Yellow ones, am I right in not wearing the red ones?  ;D

Should be fine to wear them.

Remember, the characters were known as redshirts, not redsocks...  ;)

Scotty and Uhura were redshirts.  Just sayin'.

I think those are TNG socks, so you should be fine. It's the gold you got to worry about, especially if you run into some black mud.

Because I'm that guy --

TNG didn't use different department designs on the insignia - that's strictly TOS.  Gold/star for command, blue/ellipse-in-a-circle for sciences, blue/red-cross for medical, and red/spiral for everything else:

Not only did TOS use different department designs on the insignia, they used different-shaped insignia for different ships (at least among the Connies):

Only the insignia for the Enterprise, Defiant, Exeter, and Constellation are canon (that is, they appeared on-screen). 

Yes, I...I'm an old-skool Trekkie.  I can't help it.

Yes, but TOS also didn't he the black filled angle on the shirts either.

So this mixes generations. Bit of a toss up I guess whether you're safe or not.
