gads this is a long thread. SO, just a quick heads up.. Scotty wore gold in because Scotty is a command grade officer (In ST-III he is refered to as a Captain of Engineering.) But I saw a great many engineering tunics with a Black Collar. (The Black Gang? rference to early steam powered ocean surface ships powered by coal...Most navys gave them black uniforms that would hide the worst of the coal dust)

Ahh starfleet, all about tradition ya know?
