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

    Casual Fridays could become Topless Fridays.

    No one would ever visit the UK again.

    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.

    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.

    Of course if you like being beat up by women, then this sounds like a perfect world.

    Watching the new John Constantine TV Show. Low Budget, but there is value here.

    It's because in the future there is no flab.

    Oh, but there were too fatties (Troi) in Rodenberry's future, although we might have to assume that they were fat by choice.

    A stylistic decision... Hell, it could have even been political to intentionally carry an extra 30 pounds.

    Troi's fat? Fat is Roseanne Barr when she first gained fame.

    So if the catsuit was tight because it was meant to simulate the Borg implants, then why didn't they just keep the implants on her?

    And what about Icheb? Why wasn't he in a catsuit?

    Please. There's no comparison whatsoever between Kes's clothing and 7of9's.

    Different Borg seem to have different levels of implants. 7 seemed quite plugged in compared to some of them.

    And I realize people will be wanting to hate on catsuits , whatever. It's clear the future has different ideas about modesty in many ways. Someone posted a bunch of catsuit photos across the series a while back, very illuminating. Yes you notice the big boobed ones more but so what.

    The Klingons have a proverb which covers embarrassing situations like that.

    Yes though I'm sure thanks to the wonders of eugenics you would hardly notice with Khan.

    So basically what you're saying is that your theory of why 7of9 needed to wear the catsuit wasn't actually because it was meant to simulate Borg implants, but because it was only meant to simulate 7of9's Borg implants. And that if she didn't have as many implants, then the crew would have given her different clothing to wear. Sorry, not buying that.

    I don't hate catsuits. I love 'em. I just hate 'em when they're being used as a shameless ratings grab for horny male viewers in a science fiction show that should be above such things as gratuitous displays of boobs and ass. (Well, nothing after TOS, anyway :))

    I'm saying it made her feel contained, which was comfortable to her.

    At any point she could have asked for something else to wear, and yet she didn't.

    So what is your in-universe explanation for the catsuit?

    Fat is Cyrano Jones or those Zakdorn aliens. Troi was not fat.

    Since I haven't seen boobs and ass up close yet this century, I'll take all the gratuitous displays in science fiction I can get.

    When I'm really desperate, I watch the shower room scene in Starship Troopers.

    I never liked his stupid Jack Nicholson Joker creepy smile.

    Bad character in an unwatchable series.
