On her it's a catsuit. Haw haw.
"Captain, permission to flog Therin with a wet tribble, sir?!"
Its not tight or impractical enough for that
Isn't this the TOS subforum?
Yes, M'ress is a TOS character.
I don't remember a cartoon furry in TOS.
There is no TAS thread. TAS is discussed here.

OK, no worries. Let me just slowly back out...
Just watch out for the Lieutenant's tail. I know I do!
She was in the animated series, which counts as TOS on these boards.
Let's not pile upon Yarn so much. His was a fair question.
Yarn, there were members a while back who proposed a separate sub-forum focused upon the 1973 Filmation animated series, but board admins speculated the traffic for such a section would be minimal at best. And as Forbin pointed out, the timeline presented in the animated series appeared to be part of the "five year mission" (since Shatner repeats the opening credit monologue word for word), so it was decided to let any threads about M'Ress, Arex and any other elements unique to the early 70s cartoon series reside in this section.
But again, I can understand your puzzlement about a "furry" appearing in Trek. M'Ress appeared in only 5, maybe 6 of the 22 episodes produced and rather like Uhura in the original series, she wasn't given much to do other than operating the switchboard. Her biggest moment was in "Mudd's Passion" when she was affected by the con artist's "love crystals" and temporarily fell for Scotty. So don't feel bad; even if you've seen the animated episodes, it's easy to have missed her.
Though in 6, she's not in the M'Rest of the episodes. Someone was aking above who would play her if not Majel, in TMP. We were speculating on guest actors if Phase II had gone ahead, in another thread. So let me propose here one name:
Well, I have to admire your ability for throwing some very extreme curve balls into the discussion. Keeps us on our toes. Okay, how can I state this? Among several other factors (which could be misinterpreted as disparaging towards the performer), Charo doesn't strike me as the type of person who would relent to having her face hidden under layers of rubber appliances.
Thankfully, the situation is rather moot at this time.
I thought it was who would have played her in TMP?
Goochi goochi mrrrroww?
Apologies for throwing a curveball . . .
into a discussion appreciating a cartoon cat-woman!
Be well, everyone!

Damn cat is always getting into the damn tree....
As much as I love Charo, from seeing stage performers dressed in fur costumes, anyone who was to depict M'ress would have to be almost painfully thin. Otherwise the costume would make them look very "bulky."
With her curvy body, Charo would have been the wrong choice.
Less talk, more furry nudity. :P
I would, but the mods hate me enough for it.
