CR, we're just working our way through the DVD's from last season. We got to the episode yesterday where she busts out of that lab where they're holding her and giving her a spinal tap. I was laughing with glee all the way through that scene. She didn't need a guy; she totaled all those agents herself and then stole their SUV.

I'm digging your new avatar.

Oh yeah, that episode rocks. I love Fringe, I love Olivia and I always had a thing for Joshua Jackson....

And thank you! You know I love Milo, and this one's particularly cute.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

How about this: Miniskirt only available to female crew with an ass, thus making sure Uhura gets pants.

Seriously, they're like sticks.

Isn't he? I love his Fringe mafia chic. Also, in this show, he gets to torture people with a coffee cup! Yay!

Oh, on topic, if people want to wear skirts, they should be allowed to. If in doubt, watch that South Park episode on tolerance.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

The one thing that jumped out to me about the women's uniforms on the Enterprise (which applies to TOS as well, I guess) is that the super short sleeves mean that none of the women have rank insignia...how do you know what rank the female characters are? It never hit me watching TOS, but it did during the new movie...

And would a female captain still wear the skirt? Granted, we never saw a female captain during TOS, but it is a possibility in future films...

I'm ok with the skirts, hell, make them shorter. But for the love of God give the women some sleeves. That way maybe I can tell what rank they are; When I'm not too distracted by their legs.

Edit: /\ Pretty much what ParticleMan said.

We never saw on TOS (or in the new film for that matter) many females who wasn't "support" personnel, did we? Rand was a yeoman...Chapel a nurse...Uhura was probably the highest ranked female that we saw other than Number One in The Cage, and she had a uniform more like the men's uniforms.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

Well I always had a thought that you could basically still have the XI movie uniform,with maybe some tight fitting slacks/tights that would go under the skirt. Although I too would give them sleeves too. Or at least an over jacket.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

Actually, there were laods of women in trousers, as well as in the minidress uniform with long sleeves instead of cap sleeves. They were mostly background performers, but there's even one female officer on the Enterprise bridge in a red Ops tunic and trousers.

I say Uhura had to wear the minidress in the first film because of the iconic image of Nichelle in her uniform on the series. but in the next film, it would make more sense for her to have trousers on a Landing party. But clearly there were several uniform options for female Starfleet officers and crewmen, cos you see them all the way through the film, in every department aboard Enterprise.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

Well, I'm still sticking with my compromise here: get another female senior crewmember on board (lieutenant commander or higher), maybe get Anna Torv ("Fringe's" Olivia) to portray her; put her in the head of security, and have her wear trousers with her uniform. Uhura can still keep her miniskirted uniform, and so can some of the background women.
