I wish for my male Boffs to have access to the shirt/mini-skirt uniform. They could wear them in TNG, so I want them for STO.

If you're going to put in sultry, open-chested shirts and short skirts, I want them for my space dudes too. Fair is fair.

They'll get ten million dollars if they put skants in the C-store. I'm positive.

Not so much for a Romulan/Klingon/Starfleet Captain. CBS has said (via dev quotes) that the only way they would allow beachwear is if it was restricted to Risa, or some equivalent (since KDF can't actually go to Risa).
I don't understand why for STO, there has to be a need to "restrict" the swimwear in Risa. There are many many MMOs out there that have summer events, including IP based ones, but they never had the requirement to restrict anything. I doubt this is a CBS issue either, there has been no proof of that, and given this is an issue I've been following since launch, I know it has more to do with the polarization of the issue both amongst the playerbase AND Cryptic staff.

And I believe this has little to do with skimpy women, as you can have "swimwear" for female characters today, via the mirror universe and TOS costumes (for a price of a few zen points). Its really the males that are being discriminated on, despite the fact that shirtless males have been an integral part of the Star Trek lore from TOS to the newest movie.

That said, I just want to point out that even MMOs that were initially hesitant to allow shirtless or skimpy males, has since changes their minds.

1) The Secret World: Recently has introduced an Egyptian and Arabian Knights costume for male characters

2) SWTOR: Aside from the Covert Energy Torso armour that went live when their F2P was launched, has since introduced the "Relaxed Jumpsuit" and "Relaxed Uniform" so male characters can show some more skin.

Also note that every other Cryptic game, from the original City of Heroes, to Champions, to the new Neverwinter, does allow males to be shirtless. So I honestly don't know why Star Trek Online is such an exception...

That said, I do hope an upcoming summer event would give us the opportunity to have "swimwear", and it should NOT be restricted. In the meantime, the workaround is get a male Orion (character or Boff), and just use the lightest shade possible. In most lighting conditions, they almost look...human.

The devs have said several times that as soon as they figure out to restrict costume options to specific zones Risa will be a beachwear planet for all the boys and girls of Starfleet. It is coming, maybe for a summer event this year.




I do want a Kilt costume option though.

Mr. Scott wore one in TOS, so I would also like to see it added to STO! On Earth the counties of Scotland, Ireland, Egypt (ancient) , and several Pacific Island counties also wore kilts!

Are you daft man?? A kilt is strictly formal wear. in fact, you cant get any more formal than a kilt.. You'd be walkin around ESB looking like a bloody overdressed scots popinjay..

This would be enough for me. It just sucks to go to Risa and beam back up with sweat drenched uniform...

Clearly, you weren't around for the thread back in January, in which myself and many, many others lobbied for male characters to have undershirt-less open jackets and female undershirts. I'd like to be able to make a female character and use an open jacket without showing cleavage.
