Re: Am I the only one?

So you're saying that if only the Captain had been sympathetic enough to 7's cultural needs we could have had her topless?

Re: Am I the only one?

Well in the beginning the Doctor did says that her "costume" served a medical purpose, but yes.

Although her human personality existed/thrived as an electronic conciousness in the hivemind as a valuable member of the collective and played Hookey in Unimatrix Zero, and either has jack shit to do what the husk she left behind that the collective repurposed into a drone.

This is what happened to Kes too.

She blossomed into a giant glowing space fart.

Then due to some misadventure we did not see, that fart got squeezed and condensed back into a tiny little girl again.

Seven did say that a version of her still existed in the Collective.

It does make you wonder if supplying drone meat is the ticket you pay to ascend into the Hive mind and become perfect.

What happens if you lose your "ticket"?

Do you lose status or power inside the collective?

But once your conciousness is removed, or constantly broadcasted out of the Drone, what the hell does the disembodied intellect care for it's body?

Drones are not slaves because they are not sentient.

Although Seven did say that she saw her entire life as a Drone, and that it sucked.

The back up conciousness left behind in the meat of the drones brain is obviously an autopilot for in case of if the Drone becomes disconnected from the hive.

The woman we know as Seven of Nine is a black box at best compared to the version of Seven of Nine living inside the Collective now far, far too large to ever completely fit back into her body.

Wait a minute, let me rethink my earlier reply to this statement.

Are you saying Seven would be topless, Janeway would be topless, or both of them would be topless? With a ready room scene over coffee, no doubt.

What I wonder about is, who is the Borg Queen? How much, if any, of her original self is there?

7 does not care if other people are topless. Modesty is irrelevant. So no, Janeway would not be topless or in any specific state of dress to make 7 feel at home, but yes 7 might have felt just as at home with nothing on top as with the catsuit.

Okay, still works for me!

If women want to walk around topless, I am not going to stop them.

What was she doing when...

[Cargo Bay two]
(Seven of Nine's clothes vanish)
Q2: Talk about perfection.
SEVEN: If you're attempting to embarrass me, you won't succeed.
Q2: I'm just observing humanity. Aren't you going to scamper away, make some futile attempt to cover yourself? (returns her clothes and leaves)
Sometimes you do need a smock or an apron.


Everyone eventually learns the hard way that we shouldn't fry bacon in the nude.

Here's the problem with that.

No matter what, you have to act cool.

There's boobs right there in the open and you have act like it's not a big deal, or you're a pig.

That sounds exhausting!

You'd get used to it if it was the norm. Though it would only be the norm in the summer so you might have to re-get used to it every late spring. There would have to be an official day when everyone went topless from that point on so that it was like immersion therapy.

It's one reason I don't go to the strip club anymore.

Casual Fridays could become Topless Fridays.

But it works both ways.

What is she going to do to me if she thinks I don't like her breasticles?

Back of the head with a two by four because I'm not blushing and averting my gaze fervently.

I can't win!

Yeah, that could be embarrassing.

Minding your own business, walking down the street, politely averting your gaze, and some topless woman gets right in your face. "What's the matter, don't you like my breasts? You pig!"

ETA: And then you get a bust in the mouth.

Re: Am I the only one?

I just read the last page and a half in reverse order. About the only thing I got out of it was the bacon frying warning. Thanks, BTW.

In-universe explanation for catsuits? I dunno. Because ... future? I mean, jumpsuits seem to = future for so many people.
