Y'know, those skirts are really silly. As a kid in the 70s I had no idea those were a fad of the '60s, so I never thought about them. But suppose we took a specific, short-lived fad of another period and projected that into a future time as being common.
You mean like bad folk-rock music?

I am a leg man, and I can say with authority that while the miniskirts were certainly silly, all the Trek TOS women had good legs!

I've never noticed anything overt about them, but then again they're black, and I have dvds and an old set. It might be visible in blu-ray and a good late model tv.

Seconded.

Jan Shutan said in an interview that she was embarrassed to be wearing such a short skirt because she thought her legs were too chubby for it. I think she was very hot.

Wow! Thank you so much for that visual evidence! Thanks, everyone. Now it's been confirmed that I haven't been wearing my Halloween costumes wrong, after all.

The women's pants were so tight, Sally Kellerman was uncomfortable wearing them because they were... revealing. Sometimes she can be seen holding her hands or an object in front of her during "Where No Man has Gone Before".
That's interesting. Thinking back on it, I don't recall the pants as looking that tight. I may have to re-watch...for purposes of research.
They don't look that tight in most of the screencaps on Trekcore.
Example:

I wonder if Ms. Kellerman imagined people would be expecting her pants this closely 50 years later...

Not seeing a problem with her legs. The "gender equality" factor may be an issue, but only with benefit of hindsight.

P.S.: Of course he was really there, but Chekov looks like he's been photoshopped into that frame. His feet don't seem to touch the ground quite right.

Re: Female Starfleet Uniforms

Yeah, that's not one of their better-staged scenes, but they had so many good ones, I'll give them a pass. Thanks for the screencaps.

Here's another fad example: a sci-fi show and everyone in the future has tattoos similar to ours now.

Yeah, I just noticed that. Probably just a trick of the light, but Chekov looks as if he's levitating about a foot off the ground.

Re: Female Starfleet Uniforms

The female uniforms from TOS are awesome. I was glad to see them return for the Abramsverse.

Definitely a nice turn from the prudish no skin/no skirts/everyone cover up even if you're in exercise wear that permeated the Berman-era. *shiver*

With that said, it was also cool to see variations of the female uniform in TOS - I think we should have seen a variation for males as well - which was either pants/tunic or the skirt/boots uniform. Again, another thing the Abramsverse also got right in the films.

The thing to shiver about is the alternative...the wisely abandoned Season 1 man skirt.

Re: Female Starfleet Uniforms

I never got the hate for the skant. It's no worse than seeing someone in shorts. Funny how it's okay to see women's legs but not men's. Sorry, ladies, nothing to see here, because apparently male fans can't face seeing some skin they don't want to drool over.

Well, I don't hate the skant..I just wouldn't be comfortable running around in nothing but a very short dress. That's what pants and shorts are for. But that's just me.

The hem line of the TOS females uniform miniskirts changes (it seems) from actress to actress. This might need a study/photo essay.
