Lucy was also a trend-setter--she was the first woman to have her pregnancy incorporated into a series storyline.

Lest we also forget that she owned the studio that produced Star Trek. (Lucy was also the first woman to own a studio.) If not for Lucy (and Desi) we might not all be here. LOL

I don't worry about it.
If teh feministr movement told me anything, it's that you can have a woman give you a Lewinski, but you can't have her get you a beer.

Besides, these days "strong" women show thier independance by- producing and starring in porn, which actually exploits women.

Go figure.

The uniforms bothered me. If I remember correctly, "Number One" just wore pants like everybody else. The other thing that annoyed me was that the women didn't even have a dress uniform. Those occasions where all the crew were in full dress, Uhura still had to wear her normal miniskirt uniform.

Yeah, but that could have been a budgetary constraint of the show for all we know, and not a statement on women.
