Shouldn't we see four more "raisins" under that obviously-very-flimsy dress?
Well, I always come back to this: M'ress may be cat-like, but in the end, she and her race are aliens, so whatever physical similarities they have to familiar terrestrial felines, there's no reason to expect them to replicate all of the biology (regardless of Trek's "everything in the universe is genetically-similar enough to procreate" silliness - what John Byrne called the "Central Casting Syndrome"). I expect that multiple sets of mammaries are directly linked to the number of kittens in a litter, so the question is this: how big are Caitian infants? Are they more like kittens or more like humans in shape and size?

As long as we're making humanoid cats (or felinoid humans), I'm all for the tradition of 2 breasts perched up where it only takes two hands to cover everything .
