hahaha this is funny

Scantily clad women in Star Trek has been going on throughout Trek's entire history.

7 of 9 was written on to Voyager to appeal to a particular demographic group and increase viewership. STO is following Trek history LOL.

Come to think of it, pretty much every Trek show had their gal in a catsuit or ample viewing of cleavage.

T'pol, Kira, Troi, and pretty much every female costar on TOS.

Agreed with the above poster, players are going to be dissapointed they can't get that outfit ingame.

I wouln't have a problem with ripped shirt Kirk up there either, with the philosphy of IDIC, Trek is a very liberal universe. I think it ultimately comes down to marketing and demographics for STO. Probably why the female KDF Honor Guard XII outfit with the cleave window is at the end and requires so much grinding to get to. Pretty logical move by STO if they want to keep their majority demographic glued to the game.

Cheers
TJ

The original can always be found at http://www.archive.org. It will take some rummaging, but you can still find him on a few pages.

As with any redirecting please ensure proper security controls are in place before clicking.

If such the promotional image they were going for, they should have instead had a skantidily clad Orion Slave Girl.

We've already got enough human-looking aliens in Star Trek. A little variety isn't going to hurt.

Notice the Klingons (outtakes) in the rebooted ST film wore helmets instead of having ridges? The lack of ridges on both Romulan and Klingon within that film was probably due to budget costs, least if nothing else, the writers probably felt that they'd get more of a response from viewers having an Alien antagonist that didn't quite look alien (in the traditional sense).

If she is a Vulcan, then fine. The discussion needs no more. I just figured she was a Romulan because Season 7 is Romulan. Add to that, Season 7 is introducing Romulan Bridge Officers, so...

Oh she's brought all that on herself.

You're saying Nero (and his entire crew) were actually Human-Romulan Offspring (alike Sela, foregoing the ridges). I can accept this.

Wait? Kira was supposed to be a sex symbol?

Wait are you really trying to justify a supposedly sexist change by saying "Hey it's okay, Star Trek was always sexist before!" ?

Just because it was sexist before, doesn't mean it still has to be sexist now. Just sayin'.

More like: How long until the open jackets have undershirts for the women, and open chests for the men?


For those of you thinking that the anti sexy Vulcan attitudes are silly (or whatever), I think this sums it up:

So, why didn't they use an image like one of these to put on the Front Page ?

Oh wait, I know why ... because that would have been just as sexist as the nonsense they have up on the front page now. Only the other way around, and it wouldn't be appealing to teenaged drooling fanboys, and men who act like teens.

Just putting that out there.
