What a cheat. We never got to see Uhura changing her shirt.
Proof that TOS objectified men as much as it did women!

We know from Kirk's driving in "A Piece of the Action" that the Enterprise did not have a shift.

Mostly just Kirk, though.

It would unfair to have Uhura disrobe, since if the women's dresses were any shorter, they'd qualify as shirts. She's already half-naked, IMO.

Re: Sleeping on the Enterprise

Worst use of 'off-time' ever.

In Tholian Web---they are in middle of crisis with only a very short time until they are forever trapped and also the space is making them go mad.

Then 2/3 of the way thru Uhura goes 'off-duty' changes to a nightgown just in time to see Kirk's apparition in her quarters and run thru the hall and bump into McCoy. Then of course as soon as that incident is over---she is back on duty for the rest of the crisis.

Yeah, it must have been really restful tied down in sick bay fearing your were going to end up insane like Chekov.

Worst use of ---"hey can you ever show my character off the bridge?"-----ever.

Re: Sleeping on the Enterprise

Haha, well I just remember seeing TOS for the first time, and I saw TNG first so I was used to seeing the women wearing long pants/jumpsuits, and my thoughts were along the lines of "why doesn't the poor dear have any pants?" when I first saw Uhura/Nurse Chapel/any of the Yeomen. ^_^

But Kirk takes off his shirt enough that it may as well count as all the men.

Half-naked is not naked enough, IMO.

Ah, so you're not philosophical enough to see it in "glass is half full" terms. I recommend more shonen anime.

I'm not really complaining about the women, but I do find the women's attire in the other shows a bit more work-appropriate. And I'm just disappointed that Kirk takes his shirt off every five minutes and Spock doesn't.

Haha, I just watched that episode again on Netflix. Not sure if it was the worst, but it was kinda dumb and I wondered what the point was.

If UhuraPrime ever had taken her shirt/uniform off on TOS. In the words of a certain Romulan it would be "Glorious....Glorious!" Then everyone's TV set would explode.

Even Alfred Hitchcock knew this. Early in Psycho, Marion Crane is in a hotel room with her lover. He's shirtless, she's wearing a bra. Hitch felt the scene was satisfactory for only half the audience.
