In this series we see the Discovery crew wearing metallic detachable badges instead of the Assignment Patches.

Up until at least Star Trek the Motion Picture they would use the Assignment Patch which were cloth based and sewn directly onto the uniform. In Star Trek 2 they were metallic though I'm not sure if they were sewn onto the uniform or not, if anyone knows the answer to that. Even enterprise used the assignment patches as it was appropriate for the time. Do you think Discovery went a little too far ahead of its time there?
