Actually the silver with the gold sheen looks more accurate to me, since in many of the TOS episodes the stripes appear a more faded gold, as if the uniforms were being washed too often.

And the cool gray looks more accurate to me. It works better with the different lighting effects in the game, taking on the proper tones at the proper time.

Tuvok: <-- gold pips <--- gold pips

Tom Paris:,_2376.jpg <--- a little harder to see, but definitely gold

There are others, if you want to look through the personnel list, but I think I've made my point?'

Otherwise, nice work.
