I always thought Jeri Ryan must have been really desperate for money when she agreed to wear those ridiculous catsuits. I mean what the hell.
At least she (apparently) wasn't wearing "falsies" . Kate Mulgrew said at a convention that both her's and Roxann Dawson's costumes were padded to present slightly larger breasts. And Robert McNeill's costume had built in padding to increase the characters musculature.
So, maybe they were all "desperate for money?"
