From Wikipedia:

The "Theiss Titillation Theory"-which claims that "the degree to which a costume is considered sexy is directly proportional to how accident-prone it appears to be"-is named after him.[7] A key example of this idea in practice is the gynoid costume in the Star Trek episode "What are Little Girls Made Of?" in which the revealing top portion consists only of two crossing straps of material that connect in one piece to trousers, and-Theiss's personal favorite-the gown featured in the episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?": a backless dress in which the front of the dress was held up by the weight of the train which fell over the shoulder to the floor.[4]

Hallelujah, William Ware Theiss.

In some states the legal definition of "indecent exposure" includes showing any part of the breast below the top of the nipple.

There's a reason TOS had some many ridiculously skimpy outfits : Gene. He'd show up at costuming and make alternations. Costumers said he'd just keep making suggestions to the point of picking up the scissors himself and cutting pieces off.

I made the Shahna & Andrea costumes for friends of mine for a con Masquerade (6 of us did women Kirk had screwed over and we beat the crap out of him to "Cellblock Tango" from Chicago). When we weren't all together, everyone recognized those two instantly. The others (Kelinda from "By Any Other Name", Miramani, Marlena Moreau, and Yeoman Rand), not so much.

If you really want to make either of them, ultrasuede worked best for Andrea. I adapted a regular overalls pattern for hers. I used silver lamé for Shahna but ended up winging it for the pattern. And LOTS of double-sided tape to keep the outfits on them. I'd post pics but I'm on my phone. If you want, I'll post them later.

The funny thing is that taken in the context of the times -the mid 1960s- none of this stuff seems all that weird. You could have gone to the Whiskey a Go-Go in 1966 or 1967 and seen plenty of real men and women wearing far weirder stuff and attempting to pick other men or women up while doing so.

Assignment: Earth - "This is the only episode of the second season to have Gene Roddenberry credited as "Producer" instead of "Executive Producer", the first time he had received such a credit since the first season. Roddenberry wanted to be very "hands-on" for this episode, as he hoped to turn it into a spin-off series. He rewrote Art Wallace's script and was heavily involved in production, including sets, props, casting of actors, and even the costume of Teri Garr - he insisted on shortening her mini-skirt to be "more revealing", much to the anger of costume designer William Ware Theiss."

Picture that in a hot ringmaster's outfit. Lady also had a thousand-watt smile and would chat with anybody who asked her about Trek.

She also did porn in the early 80's

You have my attention. Go on...

She did nudes as her Star Trek character. The carpet matches the drapes.



She did a lot more than nudes.

Old-timey fandom story:

A few months before Trek TOS made it's debut, there was a "fashion show" held at a California SF convention featuring some of the costumes to be seen in the upcoming show. Harlan Ellison was there, and being the God's Gift To Wimmun he thinks he is, stepped into an elevator with one of the models dressed up in one of the skimpy outfits.

Harlan looks over at the model and says "So hey.......what would you say to a little f*ck, huh?'

As the elevator stopped on a floor and the doors opened, the model starts to walk out, turns around, pats Harlan on the top of his head a la Benny Hill, and says "Goodbye, little f*ck" as she struts out the doors.

And then the doors closed, leaving Harlan alone to fume several floors further down.

Yeoman is a job description... kind of assistant to the commander. Yeoman Colt is listed on the script as Yeoman J.M. Colt and her rank is Lieutenant. The comic book series Star Trek: Early Voyages name her Mia Colt... the speculation is that Mia is her middle name.

Hmmm.....

Its been years since I've watched TOS with any degree of rigor, but I can certainly think of at least one
scene when Spock shows a great admiration for Uhura's technical skills (when she was re-wiring the
communications console, and he ends their conversation by saying he can think of no one he'd trust
more with that task).  I don't know if that's something JJ Abrams picked up on, since I doubt he went back
and watched any TOS to prepare for his movie since that seems like too much work for him to do.

That and this are the biggest Spock/Uhura moments in the original series.

I think Abrams would have reviewed the whole original series and earlier movies as part of his job if nothing else. Knowing the source material would be the difference between doing a movie he wanted to do and calling it Star Trek and deliberately adapting Star Trek into a movie he wanted to do.

Ah.  That scene was always cut out of showing of CHARLIE X by WPIX growing up, and though I'd heard
of it I'd never seen it before now.

As to Abrams:  I really want to like his stuff, but for all the interesting bits in things like ALIAS or LOST, he
just doesn't seem to pay attention to the deeper underpinnings of his story but focuses on the cool
stuff and just hopes people don't care to delve deeper into the structural problems of his stories.

Maybe, though, he truly was/is a fan of TOS, and maybe he did break his bad habits for this one
because he knew that if he did his usual half-assed but well packaged job he'd be pilloried even worse
than he was (and I truly did love his movie, and am looking forward to the next one).

Between the end of TOS and the beginning of TNG, Roddenberry started believing that he was some
sort of prophet and that STAR TREK was more than just a sci fi adventure show.

However, according to Wikipedia:

Cinefantastique reported that during filming, Cattrall participated in a photo shoot on the empty Enterprise bridge, where she wore nothing but her Vulcan ears. The story claimed Nimoy personally ripped up all of the photographs and negatives when he learned about the unauthorized photo session, because he feared harm to the franchise if it ever came to light.

Though not specifically stated, it must have been Nimoy taking the pictures, as he came out with a book
of nude photography a couple of years ago.

Mugato: For such an apparent pervert, Roddenberry was pretty pissed off when Kim Catrall (yes, she was hot at some point) did a nude photo shoot on the bridge.


I thought it was Nimoy who caught her doing the shoot and read her the riot act.....


Roddenberry would have probably been more bothered by the militaristic aspects of The Undiscovered Country.

You're 12, aren't you?

Heh. Probably doesn't appreciate the finer things in life because they are "old".


lol

I might as well be 12 when it comes to most sci-fi. I haven't been big into straight science fiction pretty much ever. I just dable here and there. Grew up on Fantasy Books, Anime and Video games for my geekiness.

I *am* on the home stretch of a complete runthrough of all the Start Trek TV series though. TOS, TNG, DS9, WOY and now am about 7 episodes into Enterprise. This is by far, the most pure "Sci-Fi" geekiness I have shown. I am told I should next run through the Dr. Who episodes also available on Netflix.

Roddenberry used to pull in the tail like nobody's business. Maybe he made a move on Catrall, she turned him down, and his poor ego was bruised


The reason NBC balked at having "Number One" as First Officer wasn't so much sexism as they didn't want Roddenberry's mistress having such a prominent role in the series.

No, UFO was not from 1984 - it was set in 1984. It aired in 1970-71. It was the brainchild of Gerry Anderson, his wife Sylvia Anderson, and Reg Hill - the team who had previously made the children;s "supermarionation" series, The Thunderbirds, Supercar, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Stingray, and the later science fiction series, Space: 1999 (which was set in 1999 but aired in 1975-77). UFO was the Andersons' first series for grown-ups, but still featured their magnificent work with miniatures which would continue with Space: 1999.

UFO was awesome. Not only were the visuals well beyond their time, but so was the storytelling. Episodes didn't necessaries have a happy ending. Characters were flawed and had multiple facets. There weren't "good guys" and "bad guys", and characters had to make hard decisions that had consequences.

Damn, I just discovered that Gerry Anderson died today. By that I mean, today, 26 December 2012, was the day he died, not just that I discovered today that he had died.

That is Sylvia Howell (played by Georgina Moon) one of the Operators of SkyDiver, a jet-airplane-launching submarine - one of the vehicles SHADO uses to defend us from yoo-foes.

Never noticed before how much he looks like Ray Liotta.


Back in the 90s I was obsessed with getting Liotta cast as Pike, but alas they wouldn't relaunch shiat until a decade later and Liotta had put on some weight. And the dude they cast as the new Pike doesn't look a thing/act a thing like the old one.

Yeoman Colt, just because

You'd think with a name like "Yeoman Colt" there'd be a Pony version of her, but no dice. I did find this, though ...

That is actually pretty cool.

Is her name Nichelle Nickers?

/sorry

ID rather her name be Michelle NoNickers, if you know what I mean, and I think you do...

Fixed.


Or both, at least according to this from Memory Alpha, the self described "Star Trek Wiki":

■Gene Roddenberry saw the movie three days before he died. According to William Shatner's Star Trek Movie Memories, Roddenberry, after seeing the film, gave thumbs up all around, and then went back and phoned his lawyer, angrily demanding a full quarter-hour of the film's more militaristic moments be removed from the film, but Gene died before his lawyer could present his demands to the studio.

DjangoStonereaver: Mega Steve: Mugato: For such an apparent pervert, Roddenberry was pretty pissed off when Kim Catrall (yes, she was hot at some point) did a nude photo shoot on the bridge.

Roddenberry used to pull in the tail like nobody's business. Maybe he made a move on Catrall, she turned him down, and his poor ego was bruised

Between the end of TOS and the beginning of TNG, Roddenberry started believing that he was some
sort of prophet and that STAR TREK was more than just a sci fi adventure show.

However, according to Wikipedia:

Cinefantastique reported that during filming, Cattrall participated in a photo shoot on the empty Enterprise bridge, where she wore nothing but her Vulcan ears. The story claimed Nimoy personally ripped up all of the photographs and negatives when he learned about the unauthorized photo session, because he feared harm to the franchise if it ever came to light.

Though not specifically stated, it must have been Nimoy taking the pictures, as he came out with a book
of nude photography a couple of years ago.


It was supposedly Cattrall's own photographer whom she allowed to trespass on the set. Nimoy was executive producer on that film and in that situation of destroying the photos acted in the capacity of responsible adult with temporary guardianship of the franchise.

Roddenberry, after he produced the first film, was reduced to "executive consultant" which kept him informed about the films and let him make suggestions, but he didn't have creative control and couldn't fire anybody, so he wouldn't have had anything to do with this.
