Background information Edit

Gene Roddenberry originally intended for his vision of Earth to be a civilization of nudists. (Star Trek is...)

According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion, for the episode "Unnatural Selection", "the Darwin "superchildren" were originally to have appeared nude and the extras were asked to shave from the neck down. But the use of transparent furniture quickly nixed that idea, and costumes were hastily made as the extras endured stubble itch."
