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.

I am OK with the sleeveless look on some uniforms since there are some ladies who where pants and sleeves, its cool to have a variation in the uniforms, its sexy too!

I always thought that it would be cold on the ship for those who were wearing the minis and the cap sleeves. Unless it was super warm. Well... Uhura can always lounge in Spock's quarters when she wants it hot.

The women can wear pants if they go topless.

This seems an altogether equitable arrangement.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

Well, the fact that quite a few women were wearing trousers in the background on the Enterprise did alleviate the pandering and sexist concerns about the movie, in that I won't come down as hard on it.

Wow. That's special.

I mean, you are aware of the incredibly poor taste of such a remark--especially in a fandom that's easily over 50% female?

Tell me, would you make the same kind of joke about women currently serving in the armed forces?

Wow. Do you realize how much you just overreacted to what was obviously a joke?

Like I said, it's a joke in incredibly poor taste. Doesn't feel like an over-reaction. Just feels like a pretty appropriately sized reaction. As for the OP's intent--tone doesn't really come across so much on the internet. So sticking with my gut here.

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

Thank you, thank you. I thought long and hard about:

1. What would be the most ridiculous thing I could say,
2. Which hadn't already been said,

A difficult task!

Which armed forces?

You know, you're absolutely right. The female Starfleet uniform wouldn't be complete without the official issue Starfleet thong!

Re: Next movie, let the woman wear pants.

Wow! Anyway, I feel that this thread is really a non issue since it has been stated many times already by many people, including myself, that some women were indeed wearing pants. As far as Uhura wearing the short skirt/sleevless number I feel its OK for a woman with power to be sexy, why do they have to be just like a man in every way, an empowered woman should still be a woman. Zoe at first didn't like the outfit but then she grew to really enjoy it as she enjoyed the importance of the role she had in the film. I am glad she was wearing a skirt because that was Uhura's choice of wear in TOS and most of the films. Its OK to be sexy and respectable, we are more sophisticated than the average women belittling pop culture norm that I see right now everywhere, this is Star Trek where women are equals and empowered, but don't take away their femininity that's unhealthy too.
