Examples of Uniforms


This section is presented for historical purposes and talks about the color schemes used in previous versions of Star Army uniforms.

Colors from YE 22 to YE 23

Originally, the uniform system included purple (pilots), yellow (technicians), and pink (intelligence); these colors were dropped when gray was added in YE 23. Some Star Army Intelligence soldiers have also taken to wearing black versions of the uniform, although these are not authorized for wear in public. During this time period, orange was used for communications officers.

Colors from YE 23 to YE 30

Colored panels on the chest and shoulders indicate a soldier's position.

Red was the default for all enlisted soldiers. If the soldier is not in the combat arms (midnight blue) or is not a medic (green), then she would have worn red.

Any medical or science personnel wore green, regardless of rank.

The cornflower blue was still in use, but for combat arms personnel only: specifically, it was worn by infantry and power armor pilots who are carried by a starship as “marines” but who were not part of the ship's operating crew. They're generally considered a lot more expendable.

Orange paneled uniforms, the only color worn without a rank pin, was a special case used to denote temporary soldiers created by a computer system to perform some task (such as defend the ship from boarders, or fix a damaged section). See Sprites.

Steel gray was the default for all officers, including warrant officers. If the officer was not a ship commander (white) or doctor (green), then she would wear gray.

White was used for starship commanders and special high-level staff of the Star Army of Yamatai.

YE 40s

YE 40 saw the addition of “Admin Mint” for clerks and administrative personnel of the Star Army.

In YE 42, Dark Magenta and Lapis Lazuli were added for the Star Army Musician and Star Army Journalist occupations, respectively.

Journalist was changed to mint in YE 44.5.
