I admit I don't know how to distinguish a captain's uniform from an admiral's in this setting, and the latter seems appropriate.

 

In TNG and onward, it's the pips on the collar. Ship crew ranks are distinguished by the number, and whether they're solid gold or just circles. Captains wear four solid gold pips. Admirals have somewhat different insignia; second season on, it's a series of gold circles in a black rectangle, worn on both collars.  And I agree with Pariah, admirals get more fru-fru. ;)

I know just enough to be dangerous. And to fill in the rest with Google. :nya:

 

But if you live long enough and pay attention, you can acquire a wealth of mostly-useless information.

Well, I can say that you are definitely my go-to-guy for Champions Universe lore.

I'm fond of saying that my mind is like a big filing cabinet where everything is filed under "I" for "I might need to know this some day". 

 

(And then I usually have to explain what a filing cabinet is.)
