Oh, and don't forget the women in miniskirts. Yeah, silly and impractical, but what can I say? I'm a leg man.
It's not that impractical, think of the female Security Officers onboard, the miniskirt would give them a very good range of motion for fighting, running, etc.
Also, a line from the Tamerlane
webcomic pops to mind: "You wouldn't hit someone wearing a minidress and go-go boots?"
