Eye Candy: The Decon Chamber

One of the producer's goals for Star Trek: Enterprise was to give Trek more sex appeal.  One of the ways they tried to do that was by creating the "Decon Chamber" where our heroes would have to spend time cleaning themselves after returning to the ship from away missions.  

Though the idea makes sense, there was a great deal of backlash from fans who saw it for what it was: a blatant way to get more nudity on screen.  By the end of the first season, the Decon Chamber was being used less and when it was, its occupants wore more clothing.
