^And how is a random Orion Slave girl dancing six seconds on screen per episode compared to one of the main characters? Like Seven would say - your comparison is flawed.
So is your logic if your saying a woman in a full body leotard is more offensive than a woman who is a slave and prostitute just based on status.

Wow. If that is not a far-fetched conclusion/assumption then I don't know what is.

Re: What if Kes had stayed instead and...

From the terror that is Enterprise, we learned that "Slave Girl" is actually a nice way of saying "Slave Owner". Its totally a gynotocracy and any former belief that it is the women under heal is retroactively a complete misunderstanding from the viewers of every item of Slave Girliry in previous episodes of trek.

Worst epsidoe ever by the way.

Guy did make some excellent points, nonetheless. The expectation/depiction of sexy and the actuality of it, for Seven or any similar T&A character, are wholly different matters.
As I said a page back...

I've always chosen to look at Seven's costume as ironic, rather than sexist. She looks the way she does, but she's far from sexy.
Oh, apologies, I missed that somehow. Musta been reading too fast.

Accidentally ironic, though, wouldn't you say?

Knowing B&B, probably.

But I try to keep what I know about the production team separate from the story.
