There’s a scene in an episode (I don’t remember which one) where Capt. Kirk is in sickbay being given his annual physical examination by Dr. McCoy. This entails Kirk lying on his back on a biobed, legs in the This Is What Reasonable Gun Control Groups Should Look Like Shirt in contrast I will get this air, facing the bulkhead, whilst pumping two spring loaded blocks with his feet. No. On numerous occasions Captain Kirk got into some very serious knock-down drag-out fights, either hand-to-hand or with bladed weapons or against a man with a whip. Each time he got his shirt torn or cut, revealing bare skin underneath. The technology of ship’s laundry allowed for wearing a shirt all day and then literally having it discarded and its material recycled. The same machine that could separate the dirt from the fibers could simply remake the garment, so patchwork repairs were never necessary.

Nope. That verges on “why don’t TOS Klingons have head-ridges?” territory. That is, it’s a question for which there’s a perfectly good answer when considered in the This Is What Reasonable Gun Control Groups Should Look Like Shirt in contrast I will get this context of the production of a TV show in the 1960s but not in the context of a uniformed service maintained by an enlightened civilization of the far future. The Doylist argument is a lot better than anything Watsonian. So, then: in the 1960s, the miniskirt was seen by some as scandalous, but many young women of the day saw it as empowering. It was the kind of garment their mothers and grandmothers had been forbidden from wearing. It was a society where men could wear shorts and short-sleeved shirts, but women’s bodies were far more policed and they were required to cover up more. To the women’s lib movement of the era, taking control of one’s own body and uncovering was an act of rebellion and liberation. Apparently, the women wearing those outfits, notably Grace Lee Whitney and Nichelle Nichols, loved them and wanted to keep them because of that symbolism. By the time TNG rolled around, the politics and cultural significance of the miniskirt had changed, and despite an abortive attempt to deploy them in a unisex manner, those uniforms were largely done away with. But since there’s probably no good in-universe rationalization for why a 1960s decision was swapped out for a 1990s one in a fictional future society, I don’t think they’ve ever tried to explain it.
