NO..EVERYBODY got it wrong..In TOS Kirk shirt was never YELLOW or GOLD the command color was GREEN, OLIVE Green, just like the wrap around shirt he wears, his regular tunic appears Goldish because of the lighting..


in TNG and DS9


Command is Red


Sciences is GREEN-Blue


Operations is Gold

Nobody has explained what this green means and why it is worn only by Kirk with the Starfleet emblem at the waist and shown sideways...



I always like a challenging challenge.

I would just like to point out that not every captasin we saw in the TOS era word the greenish gold color.


We did see a captsain wearing Blue.


 


We also saw a captain in the TOS Movie era wearing yellow.

NO NO NO, you people really KNOW HOW to drive a guy NUTS, NOBODY IN THE FLIPPIN TOS WORE YELLOW, WILLIAM THESIS, THE GUY THAT DESIGN THE UNIFORMS SAID "The Command colors were OLIVE GREEN, THE STUPID PSYCHEDELIC LIGHTS FROM THE 1960's made the shirts appear yellowish Gold, LOOK AT THE DVD'S or PHOTO'S, KIRK NEVER WEAR YELLOW, neither did Sulu or Chekov.
