Someone’s an introvert. Nick’s comment feels really familiar.
I know Marcie is right, but can anyone recall actually seeing a male character wearing a “skant”? And, really, male or female, why would you chose that for a duty iniform if you had other options? “To goose the ratings,” aka fanservice, is not an in-canon answer. (Though maybe it is for Jeff and Shaenon?)
I dunno, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen people who selected their wardrobe for fanservice purposes in the real world.
First link was supposed to be http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120205072234/memoryalpha/en/images/thumb/6/64/Enterprise-D_lieutenant_in_skant.jpg/119px-Enterprise-D_lieutenant_in_skant.jpg
Hallway scene in one of the first episodes.
They don’t show up much.
And no wonder! That isn’t anyone’s best look.
I’d have to say “yes” for Shaenon given the number of times that particular part of the 4th wall was smashed in Narbonic.
I believe it happened exactly once, in the first or second season.
According to Memory Alpha, it was shown on men five times in the first season (one being reused footage). It was last used by women in season two (four times, always with trousers) apart from flashbacks.
Keep it in perspective, Chris. You may be wearing girl clothes, but Nick is wearing the whole girl.
And, Nick, she already said yes. You’re past the hard bit.
She already said yes? When?
Was back more towards the beginning of this story arc:
Already said yes she’d come to Star Trek movie night, you mean?
Is “scared” to “horrified” a lateral move, or an improvement?
The unisex element is why Tip is upset. It just isn’t his style.
That’s not Tip – that’s Chris, Marcie’s colleague in the Department for Irradiation.
It’s likely Nick may be persuaded to wear the Starfleet uniform, but one popular fanservice costume from a certain hexalogy of films would be considerably more difficult to convince him to wear…
Heck, that may even be a step too far for Tip…
That’s Lt. Chris to you! See the pips?
… What? Everyone can read Next Gen rank pips, right?
The fact he’s wearing Lieutenant pins doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a Lieutenant. *O’Brien* wore Lieutenant pins on TNG.
Then what was he? Forgive… I’ve seen next to nothing of TNG.
But just to put this out there… rank often doesn’t mean much when the position held has its own title (ex: the “Captain” of a ship is called a Captain, regardless of their actual rank).
That’s because O’Brien’s rank was banjaxed. There is, predictably enough, a Wiki entry on the topic: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Miles_O%27Brien#Problematic_Rank_History
For a moment, I thought Chris was another Nick.

To the movies we are going,
Where Star Treks they are showing
As soon as evening falls!
But away I’ll be backing,
“Cause my nerve is sorely lacking
And I haven’t got the brawls!
With a green girl from Orion
Jim Kirk will soon by lyin’,
Until a crisis calls!
How I wish Lee and me could
Be like that, and it would be good,
But I haven’t got the brawls!
What Chris … agreed to wear
Is not what anyone expects!
The clothes … he’s wearing there
For the girl on whom I’m crushing,
I’m nervous and I’m blushing,
My courage simply stalls!
In a li-ter-al sense, an’
An emotional dimension,
I just haven’t got the brawls!
Kudos as always, Eddurd! I tune in to SH daily as much for your filks as for the story.
Is this date-with-Virginia nerves, or is princess dysphoria kicking in?
Don’t got the courage? Don’t got the courage? You’re a FROGGING princess! How can you not got the courage?
Psyching yourself up is a trap. It doesn’t make things easier, it makes them harder.
The best way to go, the easiest option, is to hold your nose, shout ‘Geronimo!’, and jump straight into whatever has you freaked out.
That’s the case for me, anyway.
Well easy to see who’s wearing the trousers in this relationship
And in most relationships. Even if not acknowledged as being so.
I can’t believe neither of them have noticed his T-shirt
No Nick, you supposed ta not have the heart to do this!
Either way, someone go get him the Lion’s courage bottle!
Wait, is Nick blushing in panel 2? The drone has a blush simulator?
Chris, I think you’re showing how thin the line between courage and insanity can be. Then again, if you can go out in public in that getup, you’re a braver man than I.
C’mon Nick, show some heart.
If your predecessor can go out to find his true love after his full-body mod rusted out on him, you can watch some Star Trek with yours.
Now, admittedly by the time Nick Chopper found Nimmee Amee, she had already re-married, but still . . .
Worst star trek dress ever. Can not unsee.
