And how many times did you see Dr. Beverly Crusher, or Captain Janeway, "wearing" their uniform so that their boobs hung out? I can't really remember any and I doubt they ever did, because to do so wouldn't be practical or professional. Ro Laren, Bajoran With An Attitude, sometimes took off her uniform coat but she had a perfectly decent shirt under it. Soooooooo...yeah.
And while you're thinking about that, how about thinking about what us ladies would like to see? Lets see some skin on the guys. Let their shirts rip TOS style. Let them roll up their sleeves. Let them take off their shirts altogether. And for equality's sake, give they guys some skirts!!! Kilts, togas maybe, and how about those first season TNG skant uniforms?
I agree with the first bit. But the second bit is just as bad, the other way round.

OK, so you just object to her sexiness. You, sir, are a prude of the first order.
Sexiness has a time and a place. But when you're in uniform (well, half in uniform) as a Starfleet officer, especially in combat and apparently having just jumped out of a shuttle, sexy is not appropriate. The time to draw attention to feminine attributes is when you're being a woman first and foremost i.e. intimate social gatherings. If they had drawn her standing with a cocktail glass in a dark club? Fine. Cleavage ahoy. But NOT when you're on duty and in imminent peril. A real person in that situation wouldn't be trying to advertise, she would be trying to stay alive. To draw particular attention to the fact that the character is a well endowed female even when it has no relevance to the situation she's in, is in fact detrimental to the situation she's in, is what is objectionable.
Handsome Phaser Guy: Above average attractive MAN. Wearing in-game uniform that also resembles those worn in the shows, and gives him the appearance of a confident Starfleet officer. Firing Phaser at a target.
Pretty Phaser Lady: Above average VULCAN FEMALE. Wearing in-game uniform that exposes her cleavage, looks almost nothing like the uniforms in the shows, and gives her the appearance of a below-average Starfleet officer who doesn't know what she's doing. Firing Phaser in no particular direction, not checking her aim.
Fixed that for you.
