Rob...my friend, it took me five years to get this one show into
production. The rest...I'll leave those to somebody else.

Re: colors and uniforms...we decided against using color that much as
service designation (red for security, and so on) for two reasons: one is that
it's so associated with Trek. We're not Trek. We allowed a touch of it in
the insignia, but in a very limited way. Second reason, you're dealing with
aliens who see various colors and don't see others, and alien sectors where
the lighting may wash out or totally change the color codes, which is why we
went for specific *symbols* for different areas (security, maintainance,
command and so on). If you're in the alien sector that uses red light
heavily, and you need help fast, you don't want to try and figure out of
that's a blue stripe or a purple stripe when asking somebody for help.
