January 3rd, 2552 Colorful
Each section of the ship is color-coded. If you lose your way, all you have to do is find your line and follow it around the ship back to your area. There are, of course, variations on the color – patterns and shades where things overlap.
Medical, for example, is red. Science is blue. Labs used by medical are red, shaded with little blue crosses. The labs used to study planetary samples are blue with a pattern of alternating orange bio-hazard signs and dark blue death heads.
It should come as no surprise, that orange is reserved for the convict constriptees. And the bio-hazard signs? Yeah, we get to clean up those labs when things are either determined to be ‘harmless’ or have overrun their Petri dishes and need to be taken out.
The rest of the colors are simple: Ship’s crew are gray, military wear black, support wears green, and everybody blends together— with the exception of the convicts.
We wouldn’t want anyone to get confused.
