back to article Anna Chapman to design Russian space uniforms

One-time Russian secret agent Anna Chapman, globally famous for being the one of the deep-cover spy ring unmasked by the US last year, will now assist the Russian space agency in designing a stylish new uniform for its personnel. Evidently this won't do for space troops. The revelations come from top Russian cosmonaut …

    I rather like her slightly Uhura-esque cocktail dress as an option for the Russian space ladies.

      She does not look particularly interesting for a russian lady

      Space or not space she would not catch an eye on a Moscow street.

      Move along, the girl is fighting to retain her celebrity status. If we pay attention to what she does she will succeed.

      For more IT relevance the 2nd picture should have been of an ex-borg on the crew of a federation starship.

        Borg on a starship

        Which one?

        The following individuals are former drones who served aboard a Federation starship after being disconnected from the collective:

        Jean-Luc Picard, Annika Hansen (Seven of nine), Katheryn Janeway, B'Elanna Tores, Tuvok, Marika Wilkarah and Icheb

        These individuals were liberated from the collective and lived aboard a Federation starship however they did not serve:

        Hugh, Azan, Mezoti and Rebi

        Additionally, there are also several drones liberated by or discovered by Federation starships on which they chose not to reside. Then there is always the question of “does Data count as having been Borg?” He served the Borg in a leadership capacity on two separate occasions.

        There aren’t many I am thinking would have been delicious pictures for commenttard consumption. Accuracy required, sir!

        Re: Oh dear...

        I think there was some confusion here. Commentard seems to me to be saying "Anna Chapman is much more than vaguely attractive". I believe Mr Page would acknowledge this and was employing comic understatement.

        I have no idea why I just wasted precious seconds writing this.

          Re: Re: Oh dear...

          Ms Bee is correct as ever. Commentard was indeed attempting to insinuate that Ms Chapman could, under ordinary circumstances, be considered, in a superficial way, more than averagely appealing to the eye, indeed not to mention, without wishing to descend to the lavatorial, certain other organs, specifically, organs belonging to those of the male persuasion.

          No idea either.

    hearsay

    is that she never was a real spy, but the russians wanted a hero(ine) and she was selected.

    The only problem was it took so long to get the merkins to "catch" her - doing nothing

    but looking suspicious while doing it just does not seem to work. In the end, the russians had to "leak" her spy status so that she would be caught and brought home as a hero or the state.

    I'm sure there will be a film out soon :-)
