Continuing the just-for-fun redesign/expansion of my classic Erotic Earth Star Trek design from 2007, this one depicts the women of Starfleet during the Next Generation era. This one is pretty self-explanatory. The male version would largely be the same design, with a full-breasted tunic that is shorted than the ones from the real show (about the same length as the ladies here, ending just above the navel). The "short tunic" variant could technically be worn by men or women, but like the skirt variant from season 1 of TNG, it would be rare to see them do, as it would be considered a more feminine look (there's a reason we never saw men in the skirt past that one dude in the background of the first episode... Because, wow). This variant came about as my original idea for the standard duty uniform, but after reviewing my old pic, I decided that the full "boob window" tunic really captured the feel better. I still liked the design, though, so I made it a variant, one that might work better for small-breasted women. I considered putting once of these in the 1st season version, but decided against it since that version is kind of ugly and was only around for one season. Plus, it was a one-piece jumpsuit, as opposed to the pants and tunic of later seasons, so it would be harder to design. The tunic just worked better all around.
And for those wondering why none of the Star Trek girls I've done so far are clean-shaven as is the more popular approach today, that's because I'm designing these keeping the time-period of the original in mind. TNG came out in 1987 and in 1987, a shaven crotch was considered a really weird kink. You'll see some smooth once we get to the more modern Trek shows like ENTERPRISE, DISCOVERY, and PICARD.
Next up will be a combination of DS9 (s.1-4)/Voyager and First Contact/DS9 (s.5-7).

While I never disapprove of a 'sexy mirror' I will argue against this style of impractical clothing in this specific universe as that clothing actually serves a practical purpose on a star ship. I should know as my first Star Wars, yes I said SW not ST, fan character uses the rules about it to skip over the whole 'robes and hood' look. Truthfully it was an excuse I used/it was something I was spoofing more than actually paying too much lip service to when somebody asked me "How can a Jedi wear a base ball T and cargo pants" XD I was like "Uh...the material is similar to Starfleet's uniforms! Yeah that'll hold up..." and oddly it has for many years lol It's thermal and also if I remember from the MMO energy dampening too to prevent phaser burns. >.> You would have to enhance the 'sexy edition' with something like a invisible thermal web or something. Why not just go the full monte and go latex?
But that said, it's a pretty decent show. I like Discovery a little better, but it's more of a traditional Star trek show, despite it's many breaks with canon.
As an aside, anyone that has problems with the canon in Star Trek DISCOVERY should keep this little factoid in mind: it's not the original universe. It's the PRIME universe, which is the original universe after its completely altered by the time-manipulation in the first episode of ENTERPRISE, "Broken Bow." In original Trek, The Broken Bow incident did not occur. The NX-01 project was mothballed and none of the events of ENTERPRISE happened. Earth's technological advancement was stunted. Earth was attacked by the Romulans. Starfleet was founded but was MUCH smaller and less well equipped. The Klingons didn't see them as a threat worth fighting but is still wary leading to a cold war. In ENTERPRISE, Broken Bow occurs, which changes EVERYTHING that happens after it. The NX-01 is launched. First contact with the Klingons happens MUCH earlier, starting the cold war much earlier. Earth begins exploring the galaxy BEFORE founding the Federation which has them encounter a bunch of new alien races and leading to faster advancements in technology and society. Transporter technology is developed faster leading to advances in matter/energy conversion and hard light holography. They prove to be enough of a power that the Romulans DON'T attack them, but the Klingons DO. So by DISCOVERY, the changes wrought by ENTERPRISE have resulted in a much more advanced Star Trek universe that plays out differently that in the original Trek shows. The canon issues in DISCOVERY are excusable because the Prime universe is NOT the Original universe, all thanks to Broken Bow.
Now, The Orville... THAT'S good Star Trek.
Its been a while since I watched DS9, so I don't recall what exactly sparked the Dominion War, but I seem to remember the Dominion as the aggressors, which was the writers' excuse for involving the Federation in an actual shooting war which many said at the time (including George Takei) wasn't in keeping with Roddenbery's vision of a peaceful future.
I don't disagree with anything you've said, other than to repeat that I seem to have the odd ability to connect with things emotionally even if I see its flaws, intellectually. I see the flaws. I acknowledge them. I hate them and wish they weren't there. I still enjoy the properties. Except for Who. Chibnall can eat a dick.
