Commander Counselor Deanna Troi, Daughter of The Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Riix, Heir to the Holy Rings of Beta-Humanity

Dressing for Success

Costume creates an image, a way to visually communicate much about a character, including personality and function.  Troi's costumes, until the seventh season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, reveal more shape and skin than other crew members' costumes.  Her civilian clothing distanced her from authority (plunging necklines left no room for rank pips) and marked her role as Counselor as different from all other shipboard roles.  They also emphasize her body, displaying Troi as an object.   

To think on...

-What do qualities do the character's dress suggest?
-How does her style of dress compare to the other people in her environment?
