My wife and I were recounting STiD tonight and she brought up something I hadn't noticed when we watched the film, either of the 3 times I saw it. There was all of this controversy about Carol getting half naked in front of Kirk in preparation to test the fancy torpedoes. I had no problem with it as Star Trek has always featured gratuitous use of skimpy clothes on women. What my wife brought up though was...why did she need to change out of her duty uniform to put on the field/flight suit? As we can see from the little triangular windows on the shoulders, the suit is worn over your duty uniform, thus the department color can be seen. So if all that needs to be done is put it on over your uniform, why change at all? And further more, if she put the suit over herself with nothing under but her skivvies, why aren't we just seeing skin through those windows rather than (as I seem to remember) the blue of her tunic? I know I'm bringing this oh-so controversial topic up again, but I'm curious as to whether we missed something (something about her uniform that wouldn't allow the suit to be worn over it, etc.) that would explain it. Because now that I think of it, without a real reason for her getting undressed the scene really is quite silly and unnecessary.
