I've been looking at various pictures from this and there seems to be (for the most part) a rationale between uniform colours and ranks.

I've been unable to dig up specifics and I'm curious if anyone else has seen the info or knows the details?

For simplicity, I'm really only looking for ranks as concerned with the original American/Japanese series.

The ranks of the characters are all listed here. Matching ranks, uniforms and divisions it looks a bit like divisions have colours as in Star Trek but there are so many variations that I don't think they stuck rigidly to this. I can't see any rank insignia at all, maybe someone with better eyes can make it out.

It looks like the link is to the modern reboot, which does add rank. It is quite likely that this was an oversight in the original series. Excellent link. –  Andrei Freeman May 24 '12 at 12:21
