I could have done without seeing that particular one again though.

Re: M'ress appreciation thread

Liked the mane-like hair the actress wore (very M'Ress-like), but that was about it. In my mind, that ain't no Caitian. Three breasts, no fur, plantigrade feet, uh-uh.

Actually, she'd work well as "Eccentrica Galumbits, the triple breast wh*re of Eroticon VI" referenced several times within the Hitchhiker's Guide, but as a Caitian, sorry, nope, not buying it.

Now, the makeup used to depict the felinoid "Sisters of Plenitude" in the Doctor Who episode 'New Earth", particularly that of Novice Hame...that was fantastic! One of the few times a feline character has been presented with plush fur upon the face!

Sincerely,

Bill

Doesn't this violate Roddenberry's "Even Number of Nacelles" rule?

Re: M'ress appreciation thread

Thanks for the links, especially that first one! Those really showcase the 'Hame" make-up in glorious detail! A few of those shots I've never seen until accessing that link.

Can you imagine the logistics of having to apply something like this not just to the face, but also the neck and hands? There's a reason beyond the story why those cat women were dressed in habits and wipples.

Sincerely,

Bill

There were a couple of male Caitians (a ginger one and a black one) in the background of STIV. They're canon!

We have the technology now. There's really no excuse for them not to. I promise to actually like XII if they include a photoreal sexy CGI cat woman.

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.
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.
Nope but maybe i should rent them from my city's library.

Since Smith's fiction was out of print last time I checked, you'll probably have to do that. That's where I picked up his complete collection of SF about 6 years ago. He was a very unique writer; well worth reading.

Yep. I have read conflicting interviews with the makeup team for that movie. One, about the time of the movie, said that yes TAS was an inspiration for those aliens. A few years later, a different interviewee thought it was just coincidence. But FASA RPG's "ST IV Sourcebook" had already assumed the two felinoids were Caitians and featured their pics in that manual.

The publicity pics have inspired the inclusion of Caitians in numerous licensed projects since, such as Marvel/Paramount's "Starfleet Academy: Telepathy War":

Exactly, even if its just one Yoeman on the bridge for a few minutes talking to Kirk or something.

I know some people have a “furry” fetish, but that would be taking things too far, IMO. I mean, I get uptight about women who don’t shave their legs.

Nopony's asking you to volunteer for it.
