What if a male crewmember on the Enterprise-D wore panties?

What if a male crewmember on the Enterprise-D wore panties before coming on duty?

Picard probably wore European style men's briefs (no front "access"), which many Americans refer to as men's panties.

The guy in Encounter at Farpoint that wore a skirt probably wore panties to match, as well as a matching bra. He would have looked silly otherwise.

How would anyone know? Assuming Starfleet has a "don't ask, don't tell" underwear policy.

Surely it would be preferable to him not wearing panties?

Re: What if a male crewmember on the Enterprise-D wore panties?

In Kirk's time, Starfleet had a "bloomers only" rule. Examples can be seen in almost any TOS scene featuring Lieutenant Uhura. Later, the rule was dropped and personnel were allowed to choose any type of undergarment they preferred.

This led to the unexpected but wildly popular arrival on the scene of the so-called "Starfleet thong."

Unfortunately, due the the reactions of a bunch of stodgy admirals back at Starfleet Command, it also led shortly thereafter to the demise of the TOS mini-skirt as the default female duty uniform.

I can't help but wonder what Helen Noel's air duct scenes would have been like with a Starfleet thong...

Re: What if a male crewmember on the Enterprise-D wore panties?

Don't those under-the-jacket turtlenecks snap under the crotch? I swear I heard someone mention that at a con. Or it came from a horrible part of my subconscious. Although I guess they didn't wear those type of uniforms on the ENT-D most of the time.

Maybe they don't need underpants, if that's the case.

Although I could jibe with a standard-issue Starfleet Thong. Is there a Starfleet Banana Hammock to match?

Re: What if a male crewmember on the Enterprise-D wore panties?

I was under the impression that undies were built into the uniforms
for instance in Chain of Command when the spoonheads cut Picards 'sneak suit' off he appears to be totally naked, and it didn't seem like they cut his suit off then cut his space-boxers off . . . just his suit

but it was too late and I've seen everything

I haven't watched Encounter at Farpoint in years. What was the deal with the guy in the dress?

Here we go again! The skant (which was a divided skirt, more like culottes) was a unisex alternative casual Starfleet uniform, worn by several male and female extras, plus Troi plus, in her final scene, Yar.

It's true for some of the undershirts. But that was only to keep the uniforms looking straight for continuity during filming.

Maybe they don't need underpants, if that's the case.
For golf on the holodeck though, they always wore two pairs of underpants each. In case they got a hole in one.

The skant is cool. There should be more skants. I would LOVE to see Tuvok in one.

I second that! Personally, I'm not a big fan of the skant, but Tuvok in a skant... now, that's interesting.

Well if he has the legs and butt to pull it off and look good in them, I'd say let him.

I would much rather see Harry Kim in a thong.... hubba, hubba! or at least the skant.
