The Galactically Hot Women Of Star Trek TOS

By Mark O’Neill

The problem with getting your name about on the internet a bit is that you get some weird people constantly emailing you, giving you links and telling you to click on them. One such person was today who told me that he “liked my stuff on Geeks Are Sexy” and told me that he had “pics of hot Star Trek babes for my enjoyment”. Hovering over the link with my mouse, I could see it was Flickr so that reassured me enough to click through and have a cautious look.

And wow, what a collection of babes there were waiting for me to show up! Someone had gone to all the trouble of collecting all the “hot women” from the original series of Star Trek, or to put it another way, all the women that William Shatner showed his Prime Directive to. But is it just me or are most of these women NOT hot? Did the make-up department go a little bit too crazy with the make-up? Or was that the “in” thing back then?

  1. Yes, it is just you. You are obviously either gay, blind, misogynous, a rare combination of all of them, or have never left the comfort of your basment, basking in the light of your PC monitor and hence never seen an actual female member of the human species yet. It's the only "logical" explanation for your comment. Almost all of these babes are HOT, Shirley!! Even Spock's mom's a looker! And boy, do I tell you, my standards are high! I am an artist, which does not make me an authority, but at least I can honestly say, these women, with today's make-up and haircuts, would look fantastic since they are knock-outs already. Man, you are putting geeks likes to shame! :P

  3. Boy, you don't pull punches don't you?! I didn't say they were all ugly trolls that I would kick out of bed. I just meant to say that a lot of them were a bit heavy on the makeup, that's all! :-)

  5. A tiny known fact about Nichelle is that they worked for NASA in the seventies, helping to recruit females in to the astronaut corps. This is how I met her, because my cousin's best mate was a PAO man for NASA at the time & was involved in this stuff.

  6. Hmm, no, you actually said most of them are NOT hot. There were women for all tastes in Star Trek TOS. Saying that they were wearing too much make up is one thing, but they are still hot.
    The make up is obviously after the fashion of the era, and considering they still had to appear in some black -and-white TV sets, it's only logical that they wore heavy make up; even the guys' make up is noticeable when watching the episodes in color. Still, that has nothing to do with them being hot or not.
    So, yeah, it's only you. They ARE hot.
