    Well, I can't speak for the OP, but this thread (like many on this board) is a "living and evolving" thread, which seems to have evolved past the original two choices (for which I am partially to blame for seconding the Yeomen Smith nomination a few days ago)...

    ...To be fair to the OP, maybe you should give your Colt/Rand choice first, then add your own if you want.

    I never gave my preference regarding the Colt/Rand question, but I gotta go with Colt -- but then again I was always a "Mary Ann, not Ginger" kind of guy.

    I have seen that movie, yes. And I agree, Andrea Dromm did look good. Yeoman Smith gets my vote as most attractive yeoman, hands down.

    More from Memory Alpha:

    Phyllis Douglas (born 24 July 1936; age 71) is an actress who played Yeoman Mears in TOS: "The Galileo Seven". She also appeared as a girl in TOS: "The Way to Eden".
    Douglas made her feature acting debut at the age of three in the epic classic Gone With the Wind, although she was not credited for her work. She later appeared (again, without credit) in the film Raintree County, which also featured DeForest Kelley (Leonard McCoy from TOS). In 1959's Girls Town she played the character Eleanor alongside Elinor Donahue. She also appeared in two episodes of Batman.
    Douglas has since retired from acting and currently sells recreational vehicle lots in Palm Springs, California.

    Wow...I always found Yeoman Mears very attractive, but not the hippie girl. I guess I'm a lot more fickle than I thought.

    Nah...maybe it was just the hairstyle that you preferred over the other. :)

    Shows she's good at what she did!! Too bad she didn't have any more starring roles... :(

    To define the playing field a little, here's a list of the twelve yeomen who were identified as such during the original series' run:

    Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney): First half of first season
    Smith (Andrea Dromm): "Where No Man Has Gone Before"
    Tina Lawton (Patricia McNulty): "Charlie X"
    Theresa Ross (Venita Wolf): "The Squire of Gothos"
    Mears (Phyllis Douglass): "The Galileo Seven"
    Tonia Barrows (Emily Banks): "Shore Leave"
    Tamura (Miko Mayama): "A Taste of Armageddon"
    Zahara (Maurishka): "Operation Annihilate"
    Doris Atkins (Carolyn Nelson): "The Deadly Years"
    Tancris (Judy McConnell): "Wolf in the fold"
    Martha Landon (Celeste Yarnell): "The Apple"
    Leslie Thompson (Julie Cobb): "By Any Other Name"

    WOW!! :eek: Did you write that from information in your head, or did Memory Alpha help you out at all? Either way it's impressive that you were able to get all that. Bravo!! :techman:

    Dude...that is GENIUS!! Seriously, someone should photoshop that!! Yeoman Mears should be August. Dunno why, she just looks like an August.

    Smith should DEFINATELY be July, in reference to her "Summer Blonde" Clairol ad campaign of the 60's. :techman:

    Janice as January - not only J-A-N, but since she was at the front of the series?

    :guffaw::guffaw:

    My sides still hurt. That is totally epic!

    I noticed your display picture, too...do you have a larger version of that?


    Back to what we were discussing earlier, about the Yeoman Calender: seriously guys, let's do it! The "Blue Warp Nacelles" thread turned into a weird photoshop project that swept all of teh interwebz, so why not do our own project? Do I hear any agreements?

    First off, we should probably decide which yeoman goes in which month. Thus far, I think we've decided on three:

    January - Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney)
    February - Undecided
    March - Undecided
    April - Undecided
    May - Undecided
    June - Undecided
    July - Smith (Andrea Dromm)
    August - Mears (Phyllis Douglas)
    September - Undecided
    October - Undecided
    November - Undecided
    December - Undecided

    Of course, if anyone wants to contest those placements, or has any other suggestions, feel free to speak up. This IS a group project (hopefully)!! Pure coincidence that the yeoman list kindly provided by ToddPence just happened to supply 12 yeomen. :)
