2250s conn admiral sleeve

Adm. Nogura's sleeve stripes.

Artists Adam Hughes and Karl Story went to great lengths to accurately portray the simplistic 2250s Starfleet uniform and accompanying sleeve rank insignia portrayed in TOS episodes: "The Cage", "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and other contemporary stories. This story is a first and only appearance of the 2250s "three-stripe" admiral's Starfleet uniform sleeve rank insignia, as well as the origination of assignment patches for the USS Farragut and two other unspecified assignments, one on Dr. McCoy and one on Nogura. The Farragut insignia in particular would go on to be reused in other DC Comics publications. One oddity is McCoy's 2250s sleeve insignia of two stripes, which would signify a captain's rank.
