But even the little no-name peons that worked for Worf wore gold.
And just what EXACTLY was Worf's job title prior to being promoted to Chief of Security?
From Memory Alpha:
"In 2364, Lieutenant junior grade Worf was assigned as a command division bridge officer on the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) ... Worf spent most of his first year on the Enterprise-D as a relief officer for the conn and other bridge stations."
So, his first assignment was as a flight controller, which is a command division position and thus he wore red at the time.

2. Do you feel that the skills a tactical officer learns best reflect a security officer, or do you feel that the skills an engineering officer learns are more in-tune with security?
On my ship, I have a tactical officer as chief of security, and an engineer with turrets and mortars who is her assistant. They both wear shades of yellow/orange.

Does it really matter what color anyone is wearing? If anything, dress them in colors that will remind -you- what they do.
On my ship it does matter; I'm a stickler for dress code and all my new officers quickly learn to follow my rather traditional uniform tastes.
Just found this thread but I'm bothered by the same issues.
So if you wanted an "Ops" character who did what Data did, you should probably choose a science officer and dress him in yellow.
The real problem is that regardless of how you dress them, STO puts them in the wrong stations on the bridge. On my TOS constitution, my red-shirted engineers sit at the Helm/Nav stations while my yellow-shirted Tactica officers sit at the engineering and comm posts.
