I'm not really sure they had the colors tied to duty in TOS, or at least, the first season. I've been laid up sick the last few days and have been watching my recently arrived TOS series collection. Just finished the first season. Some eipsodes Uhura will be wearing a red uniform and in others a gold one. In Space Seed, the woman playing the historian officer wears a red uniform. Seems to me history would be under the sciences branch, not security. Some crewmembers would even be wearing a jumpsuit like uni, thiough they seemed to most often be involved in physical labor while doing so. Must be a more work related uni, like a fatigue, than the standard one. Maybe they became more formal with uniform codes in later seasons.
