now with less hotlink! oops!
There was a time when the future, even an apocalyptic one, was colorful. Currently the future is washed-out and gray. Perhaps in the future color will return to the "future".
while today's tv venues are littered with vulcan bums, it's hard to imagine it being quite as objectifying as it was back in the "Golden Age."
Ah, the work of William Ware Theiss there.
How have we come this far and not covered Orion Slave Women?
There can be only one:
Is it any wonder Kirk was such a space hound dog.
Now, see, Uhura is awesome and does her best, but nearly none of her costumes actually fit, plus the material looks scratchy and I don't want to touch it. Plus the pantyhose she usually wore? Pantyhose: rarely, if ever, sexy.
PS: Those "AND HOW" costumes are all stupid in different ways that take away from the sexy, although I admit this is probably my own thing because I know how boobs work and I know how goddamn annoying all of those things would be to wear. Except that first silver one, that's unsexy all on its own, she looks like she's wearing a tin foil diaper. The purple and silver one is probably the best one. :P
But it is not how annoying they are to wear, it's how sexy they look to the viewing demographic.
I don;t know why you guys are still arguing over who is the hottest. Did I not post a photo of Colonel Deering? SO SAY WE ALL.
balut ended your line of discussion completely. If you're not content to keep this thread about Star Trek and insist instead on opening it up to a competition for hottest woman on any sci-fi show, well duh, Christina Hendricks wins by definition.
There's always Jenny Agutter in Logan's Run. There's some comfortable 70s sci-fi clothing! Well, aside from the chrome collar.
The wicked princess on Buck Rogers was much hotter than Col. Deering. And Maren Jensen as Athena on BSG was hotter than her.
Here's a link to the posts tagged "Space Babes" on the awesome blog Space1970.
Tinfoil diaper, dude. I mean, maybe I shouldn't judge. Maybe there's a whole bunch of people who find tinfoil diapers HOTTTTTT. Plus her butt is protected from ... ass control ... rays?
oh wait, that one is an object.
The Star Trek designs really do miss the mark on sexiness. While with nearly no skin showing or any potential for accidents Tron:L seems to hit a sexy tone very well.
Olivia Wilde was the best part of that movie by far. That haircut and those eyes. Goddamn.
My two favorite drool-worthy SF women are new-series BSG Starbuck, and really anything Milla Jovovich is in. (She are I are the same age, and I've had a thing for her since we were both in our early teens and she was a model.)
How has Ornella Muti as Princess Aura not been mentioned?
Bonus Timothy Dalton:
Oh man, Ornella Muti as Princess Aura. To this day I still think Flash Gordon should've picked her over Dale.
Then there's the infamous catsuit + spinning Tardis console:
Lt. Col. Samantha Carter from Stargate SG-1. In or out of uniform. So much. (bonus: actor's name is Amanda Tapping. Yeah, it's time to do some tapping).
Made even more attractive by the fact that Carter was never positioned as the slutty party-girl in the show. God so hot.
Back on topic:
Needs more beard.
Sir Patrick Stewart was 55 years old in that picture. I sure as hell know I won't look like that when I'm 55 (except, depending on my genealogy and what happens over the next few years, the baldness). Jealous!
Which is why one of my favorite ST:TNG episodes is "Chains of Command". Not just because of the main plot (an exploration of torture in warfare, sadly soon to be all too relevant) or the B-plot, which was Ronnie Cox taking over for Cpt. Picard as a hard-ass hated and yet still oddly effective commander.
No, it was because as part of Cox's hard-assedness, he took one look at Lt. Troi in her space-slattern leotard...
and without missing a beat, barked at her to get into a proper Starfleet uniform NOW.
And she did.
FOR THE REST OF THE ENTIRE SERIES AND ALL OF THE MOVIES. Which, as a male, let me assure you, made her FAR more attractive.
Captain "Ronnie Cox" Jellicoe, we salute you.
Marina Sirtis definitely became more attractive as the series went on, I guess it was the change in hair style too that helped. Excellent write up Lum! :)
....how did I never notice this? That dick captain was a hero. I think the hairstyle change did the bulk of the work though.
Also holy shit when did this happen
This is, fundamentally, a Ginger vs. Mary Ann question.
Although a good strategy would have been to generate some goofy reason for Col. Deering and Princess Ardala to hook up. My pre-teen self would have remembered that forever.
For you younguns to reference, imagine these two hooking up:
I'll be in my bunk.
Don't forget that in Encounter at Farpoint, she wore the miniskirt and hooker boots. You get that for one two-parter episode (the pilot) and then they switch to the leotard. Background
Yeah, Farpoint was an odd episode for costuming, Roddenberry was still figuring the look out. Notably, Troi wasn't the only crewmember in a miniskirt...
Ah yes, the manskirt. Maybe he wanted some Scottish culture too?
edit: ninja'd by Fatbird.
Truly! Again, to quote episode notes from Memory Alpha:
That's a hilarious quote from Cox, but what I more admire is Roddenberry's progressive thinking with the skant. That's really pretty awesome, and I absolutely know why the network didn't let him stick with it.
If inception technology ever becomes real, that'll be the first memory I ask for.
You can currently buy a Horga'hn and call forth its powers of sexuality.
Risa here I come.
Trying to calculate the effectiveness of displaying a replica prop from Star Trek as a signal that you want to get laid...
