"Some what?"

"The commercial with the big boobied girl in a bikini jumping up and down."

"Oh, that. Sure."

But I'm sure you'll agree that her pose was a lot less, as the kids say, "derpy" T'Boobs would have gone over a lot better, even if she was in the same outfit.

It's doubly sad since Star Trek has had long history of appealing to women and LGBTQ geeks. STO is obviously doing quite well financially milking just the babymen alone, but it wouldn't hurt them to make the game more welcoming to players who haven't just crawled out of the primordial soup.
