Some things I'd like to point out:

Let's start with a quick report of the uniform-related stuff I find noteworthy from the past 4 weeks.

Some nice close-ups of MACO rank patches (but we've seen them in the Christie's auction)
A ENT VADM and RADM uniform with exactly the same sleeve stripe composition (I've contacted one of the buyers and I'll hopefully get a clear picture of the stripes)
A TMP jumpsuit with shoulder tabs. The interesting thing about it is the rank stripe. It's too narrow for a Lieutenant stripe and not broken, so it shouldn't be Ensign either. Maybe Crewman 2nd class?

Week #5


Gemstones

Uff! The TSFS security guard uniform is tricky ... but I doubt its acuracy: First the guards didn't wear the bronce non-com badge, but the individual security badge, also the guard doesn't appear to be a LTJG, but more a crewman, see TrekCore

They probably lost the original insignia and used this one as replacement.

One guard is definately an Ablesman (with silver enlisted pips and squeaks). I think the other guard with the moustache is a Lt. JG. I can see two shimmering dots on his sleeve.

Perhaps the Red and "Sky Blue" arm band isn't divisional???


What if it is like the arm bands that say "MP" or "SP"? That slash appears to be the same color as the whole uniform to...

And the red seems to be darker than the flame red of trainees. Yeah, I guess saying it isn't divisional is proabably the best way to deal with this oddity.

I too think it is better to assume the red denotes another affiliation rather than divisional: In the German army each company/battery within a battalion is colour coded:
1./ white,
2./ red
3./ yellow
4./ blue
5./ green
6./ black

This is said to go back to the 18th century. Maybe something similar exists for the Starfleet Security?

yes, the red seems to be the tunic red...


That makes me wonder, if that is a command band... see, the only time that tunic red is used in representing a division is on the pant stripe for command division officers, in place of white...




Kobi, thats an interesting thought, perhaps is designates them as "maximum security" Prison guards...

Hmm, some interesting tidbit: They identify Jameson's rank insignia as Rear Admiral.

What's so strange about that? That is the accepted insignia for a RA lower half.

Well, I think they rely on the information they take from the encyclopedia here, I don't have access to production notes, but all Admirals seen with this insignia are simply described as Admirals. One might think that it is lazy grade reduction or a "we don't want to confuse the audience with military jargon" attitude, but especially the case of Admiral Quinn makes me doubt this. (It's on my list of investigation.)

Except that there is no information about this insignia in the encyclopedia.

I thought Braxton commanded the Time Ship Relativity and not the Aeon?

He commanded the Relativity in 'Relativity'. He commanded the Aeon [in so far as one can command a one-man vessel] in 'Future's End I&II'. In fact I'd be quite happy to conjecture that the 'Timeship' Aeon was actually a 'time-shuttle' assigned to the Relativity.
