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 ...

There is no other purpose.

Yes, but her last name isn't Colt. Yeoman Colt is an entirely different character, although she was the basis for Rand.

cretinbob: I've started watching them again on Netflix. Not sure I'm happy with the Enterprise and planets being CGI now, but the cheesiness of the special effects was an integral as it is in Doctor Who.
One thing I've noticed though is that the Spock/ Uhura relationship in the reboot should not have been a surprise.


I spent my entire thirteenth year in love with Mr. Spock. Canon would have had him with Nurse Chapel.

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.

FunkOut: 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.


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."

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.

Probably one of the hottest Trek cosplays I've seen in recent years. Granted I don't see much around here. It's generally frowned upon in this area if you enjoy anything other than reality TV and sports.

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.

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.
