M'ress appreciation thread

A thread for those who like this character.

I think she is one of the most underrated characters ever in the the ST universe, she deserves more attention and gets fan art now and needs an action figure.

26 years ago when i was 4 watching the animated show on Nick, i had a crush on her and it was her with Cleo from Heathcliff and Cheetara that started my fascination with catgirls. This Caitlan beauty had such a sexy voice and a good personality as well.

Now if a man mated with her or any girls of her Caitlan race, what would the offspring of a human and caitlan look like? would it be a full caitlain or a weird fusion of human/caitlan? would the baby be adorable or a freak?

I mean there are hybrids in the ST universe including human and other alien race mixes like everyone's beloved Spock who is human and vulcan for instance.

Others have seen this piece already, but since you opened this subject, here's an animation styled portrait I made way back in 1997, maybe 98 for a late friend's tribute site.



He specifically wanted M'Ress depicted in a "Wrath of Khan" uniform. (Considering she's covered in fur, she's probably about to suffer a "meltdown" in that attire. The "Heavy Metal" styled background came from a Corel clip-art CD.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: M'ress appreciation thread

I can see how one might assume that spelling. Casually glanced, that second "i" can be mistaken for a lower case "l".

That does raise a question. How should "Caitian" be pronounced? I've always assumed it was...

KAY shun

...but I realized I could be very well mistaken.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: M'ress appreciation thread

M'ress looks great in that WOK uniform.

Who'd love to see her with Arrex in the next ST movie?

There's just something appealing about catgirls as they have enchanted men for years just like Mermaids, elves or fairies have. Even the Japanese dig them, in cartoons and games there has been catgirls that some guys dug over the years let it be M'ress, Cleo from Heathcliff, Callie Briggs from Swat Kats, Felicia from Darkstalkers, Cheetara from Thundercats, Aishia Clan Clan from Outlaw Star, Jenny from Bucky O'Hare, cheetah on Justice League, Mirage from Aladdin The Series, Puma Sisters from Dominion Tank Police, Kit Mambo from Animalympics to even Selena Kyle on that one Batman TAS episodes where she turns into a REAL Catwoman, all cuties.

Now would a Caitlain/Human fusion offspring would look like it has a human body and human face with cat-ears and tail?

I pronounce it KAEE-tee-ann. But since I'm Italian, I have probably no clue about English pronunciation.

Oh yes Nekos, the hybrid child of a catperson and a human.

Slightly off topic, but have you ever read Cordwainer Smith? Some of his SF stories feature catgirls. For example, his character Underperson C'Mell (who appears in the novel Norstrilia). Some say that his stories are the origin of catgirls.

It might end up looking like a chorus girl in a cheap costume.

The lack of M'ress and Caitians in general from canon/on-screen Trek is a constant crime for which I will not forgive the franchise, I want my cat women damnit!

Could be worse. Might inherit the feline shape but be relatively hairless like a human, thus looking like a bipedal sphinx breed. Eww.
