Nichelle Nichols, on the original Star Trek episode "Mirror, Mirror" which aired on October 6, 1967 wore a belly button exposing costume. According to a story told by fan, Bjo Trimble, she was on set and distracted the person from Standards and Practices so that the belly button revealing costume went unnoticed.

A later Star Trek episode, "The Cloud Minders," first aired February 28, 1968, Diana Ewing wore a belly button revealing costume throughout the episode.
