    Yeah they were SO forgettable. I mean no remembers her at all because of those damn catsuits, just so freaking dull.

    Fantastic costume made better by a fantastic actress.

    She looks good in or out of one, in fact.

    In Steven Poe's book on the making of the series, Ryan said she had no problems with the costume showing off her shape, and preferred showing shape rather than a lot of skin.

    At least she (apparently) wasn't wearing "falsies" . Kate Mulgrew said at a convention that both her's and Roxann Dawson's costumes were padded to present slightly larger breasts. And Robert McNeill's costume had built in padding to increase the characters musculature.

    So, maybe they were all "desperate for money?"

    This was best exemplified by Jonathan Frakes' weight gain during the run of TNG and a steady paycheck. He looks thin as a rail in Farpoint.

    I actually liked 7 of 9 as a Borg and in a Starfleet uniform. I think they rushed her from being a Borg too fast.

    Fruit salad from Kresge's, which he avoided for years later, if I remember.

    Or maybe it was Walgreen. Or Woolworth's. All three had lunch counters.

    He looked way too thin and weird without the beard in S1. I think he looked better later on.

    Everyone on tv is expected to be super buff compared to the TOS era. Spock was absolutely skinny!

    John wasn't too thin.

    His COSTUME was too TIGHT.

    I think his weight gain was from the steady paycheck and home cooking after marrying Genie Francis in 1988.

    That's a remarkably attractive women, however I'm fine with the rate my gut is expanding and don't think I'm brave enough to accept that sort of trade off.

    The trade off of getting the woman AND the gut?

    Sounds like a very good deal to me.

    Woman only make men fat so they're too unhealthy to get it up or keep it up.

    Men only make women fat so that they are too bashful to re-enter the dating pool.

    Do you see the difference?

    Men want to live forever with their lover and Women want their lads to die first.
