Lieutenant Uhura’s original series minidress uniform is ICONIC.
Is it ridiculous as a uniform? Yes, of course. Should scientific uniforms be gendered in the 24th (or 21st) century? No, of course not. Is Nyota’s uniform fashionable to the nth degree and worthy of celebration? Of a certainty.
Nyota’s micro-mini is not practical and probably not appropriate.
But in the sixties, on a black woman, it was considered inappropriate for blatantly racist and sexist reasons – whether she could do her job comfortably had nothing to do with it.
In that way it was progressive, and divorced entirely from politics, practicality, and context: it is certainly stylish as hell.
