...the only thing that screws up that logic is that while the crew of the Titan still wear the FC uniform, is they also have different commbadges and that doesn't make sense.
Why? It is basically a cosmetic difference.

I suppose there is precedent in differing badges, even if it’s from a time when they were just badges, not communication devices.

And really there are plenty of real-world examples of wildly differing uniforms within single services, so it’s not that much of a problem - if you ignore the fact that for much of the course of established Trek continuity there was very little evidence of it!

... Aside from random examples, like the TMP uniforms (which were all over the place, and were I suspect an example of Roddenberry in his later years, being all happy-clappy, and seeking to play down the quasi-military trappings of Starfleet?) or the mix of TNG & DS9 in Generations.

It also makes sense for the crews of ships that "follow up", and for the staff of embassies, to wear a less militaristic uniform. Messaging is important.
