Of her catsuits, I think I preferred her silver one.

I liked the ribbing underneath her suits. It gave the impression she had more exoskeleton than just we saw on her hand - but IIRC her back was totally bare in Q2. Curse those Voyager continuty blunders! They can't even get naked right!
Actually, that was something I think they got right. The Doctor says in The Gift that as time goes by she'll lose more and more of her Borg hardware. That means, as of The Gift she still has that exo-skeleton underneath the catsuit, but by the time of Q2 it's been removed.

I have a slightly different opinion, she looked really good in that blue Starfleet uniform in "Relativity" and mostly because she looked respectable.
I agree wholeheartedly. Seven (and Troi and T'Pol) looked their absolute best in standard uniforms because they looked respectable and the outfits left room for sublety.

However, if I had to pick one of the catsuits, it would be the silver one.

Re: 7 Of 9's Costume?

Ah but wearing that to the beach is so idiotic, who can we take her seriously?

Then that's not her, just fear and doubt piggying backing into ransom's forelobe using a typical unrealistic and airbrushed male fantasy.

All I gotta say is that even my wife found her boobs and cameltoe in those suits distracting at times.

They put her in that costume to try and make her hotter.

(1)this demonstrates that they had no understanding of what an attractive woman should look like as she'd have been much more attractive in a starfleet uniform with her hair down than a tin foil catsuit and headmistress' hairstyle.

they succeeded in making her look frumpy and about 10 years older
They did the same thing with T'Pol on ENT and pretty much the same thing with Deanna Troi on TNG for a few seasons.

I think all the catsuits spanning these series illustrated (1).
And yet her character was probably the most recognizable thing Voyager had going for it in mainstream pop culture during the time it aired, and we're talking about her outfits and how yummy she looked a decade later, so I think they knew something about what people liked to look at.

You can't please all the nerds all the time, but someone liked the cat suits.

Not to mention the crotch shots when she stood on the upper level of the astrometrics room.

I didn't notice the cameltoe once. My eyes probably never got that far down.

Re: 7 Of 9's Costume?

the silver one.

I'm no prude, I liked the catsuits and found them respectable too.
She was covered from head to toe in them, any sexual thoughts come from our own imagination. If the catsuit is disturbing, then it's your own filthy imagination IMO.

"Encounter At Farpoint" and that I believe was the one and only time. Also, I think some guys wore the same outfit in the episode too *shutters

I vaguely recall from a behind-the-scenes thing once, that Seven's catsuits were designed especially to prevent camel toe.
I never noticed any, but if anyone wants to point me to episodes and scenes that show otherwise, I'm fine with being proven wrong on this one.

Re: 7 Of 9's Costume?

I generally do like catsuits in Trek but Seven's catsuits were just so demeaning in their design that I couldn't help but feel sorry for Ryan. If they had put her in a slightly more organic catsuit like those worn by T'Pol or Kes, it would have been much better.
And let her damned hair down!

It wasn't often, but I believe I noticed one particular moment around Season 7.... and as kimc said, there were a few shots when the camera was looking up towards her that sorta threw "things" in your face, lol.

Then there was that episode where the doctor took over her body and she got all drunk with her legs all sprawled out.... not as noticeable as Troi's occasional cameltoes, but they were there from time to time.

Not that I'm complaining, lol.

No cameltoe. I would've noticed.
