Star Trek Quiz: What Colour Uniform Did They Wear?

How well do you know these important characters from Star Trek? Can you identify their shirt color?


Star Trek is one of the longest-running and most successful television and film franchises ever created, and as a result, there are tons of fans who regularly enjoy everything the franchise has to offer. Since it first hit the airwaves in 1967, there have been ten feature films, eight TV series, and hundreds of comics and novels.

It's hard to find someone who hasn't seen at least one episode of the series, and for the die-hard fans, they usually see 100% of whatever is out there. As a result, there are some Trekkies who know more than anyone should about a pop culture franchise.

Still, that doesn't mean that every fan of Star Trek knows what color uniform a character wears. Shirt color is one of the most important aspects of a Starfleet member's identity, as it determines which area they work in on the ship. Color is such an important factor, the term "redshirt" has taken on a significant meaning in and out of the franchise.

How well do you know Star Trek's most important characters? Could you say, look at a black and white picture of Miles O'Brien and pick his color? What about TOS Captain Kirk? They're all here in this quiz, which will test your knowledge in determining which color uniform they wore, so test your knowledge and share your score with friends!
