Also, it's not sexism, c'mon. I don't think you know the definition of sexism. Women are not being oppressed by digital pixels that show more skin than your personal morals approve.
Catering primarily to male fantasies in this game is a form of sexism. Maybe not exactly the most evil form that causes great suffering in the world. But it's giving men preferential treatment, because they get to see attractive and sexualized representation of the other sex, while women do not.

I personally like attractive and sexualized representations of the other sex. But I see no reason why women should be excluded from that kind of offering. Of course, make sure that whatever you offer is actually attravtive to them. There is a difference between a male's power fantasy and a female's sex fantasy.

All Starfleet uniform costumes should be presented as unisex. If one gender's uniform can be worn with a sweater under an unzipped jacket, then so should the other. If one gender's uniform permits an unzipped jacket without a sweater underneath, so should the other.

This is why I so strongly want the TNG Skant uniform variant. Not to be cute and offensive to player's who don't care to see men's bare legs while on-duty. But because that uniform really is unisex and fashion forward in a Star Trek setting.

Well if the game had better options for all the characters. Happy, sad, evil faces etc. We could make the men more sexier, for women. In till everyone can go bare chested and support a real muscle system (not crappy textures) it ain't happening. I want the TNG pilot skirt uniform. It should of been available with Troi's costume pack. And be useable on males. This is probably why it wasn't added in the first place. Then again cryptic tends to screw up, in costumes, and forgets to make all variants for a set. Why is it so hard to show skin in this damn game for everyone.

thanke you for that, I do remember it now.
I would agree its a step, very small, but credit where its do i guess.

As long as I'm allowed a choice to respond in a manner consistant with my attitude and sexual orientation, I could care less on the gender roles of the NPCs ingame.

Woman wearing little are nothing in Si-Fi is common form the 50s and 60s and Star Trek comes from that era. Example of woman wearing little Forbidden Planet (1956), Barbarella (1968), and One Million Years B.C. (1966). Even today if you look you can find women magazines with them wearing little or nothing. They talk about them on shows like The View all the time.

What the real crime is they charge more for them.
