Episode 7: What Are Little Girls Made Of?
I think we can all agree that these are sexiest pair of overalls ever worn by an android. I actually felt a little uncomfortable while drawing this outfit, so I can only imagine how scandalous it must have seemed in 1966.
This costume is one of Star Trek's most memorable in an episode that is otherwise somewhat forgettable. Unlike later costumes worn by Ladies of Kirk, it's quite simple. It has no fringe, sparkles, feathers, tie-dye, paisley or flowers. So, in the bizarre universe of Star Trek TOS, it makes sense for a beautiful but emotionless robot, I guess.
This episode marks the first occurrences of two of Kirk's favorite strategies for dealing with tough situations:
- Disable a robot by confusing it
- Distract a woman by seducing her
A combo attack! That's why he's the best!
Next up: Dr. Helen Noel, psychologist. What do you guys think so far?
