I'm not offended by that new cover girl. It's just sooooo cheap... But why should STO be any different than any other game
Girls don't need to show anything off either. But it doesn't bother me when they do.

I did think the first time I saw it that it will appeal to the 10-13 year olds who have never seen a real pair, rolled my eyes and moved on. Sexist? meh, sexual objectification? yes. Sad adolescent fantasy imagery? Top marks!!

It makes me want to leave that page as quickly as possible.

What is the problem?

The cover figure dosen't show more or less than most women I see during summertime in the mall..??

I really don't get it.

Not sexist, just kinda...stupid looking. She looks like a space-elf leaning forward trying to take a shot with her phaser...or something? I dunno...it looks plain silly.

Let's face it guys, the only thing wrong with the picture is that there isn't more boob showing. Don't go all metro. Girls don't really like that, no matter what she tells you.

The problem is, there is no open female variant of that uniform, and you can't see the boobies that clearly in-game, so it's a screenshot that could lead the players to believe that this uniform is exactly available in-game as it looks on the screenshot.

Infact I'd go check out the New Romulus Ruins (1) screenshot in the screenshot gallery. Theres another Romulan looking person wearing the same uniform...
This phaser lady is neither Romulan nor Vulcan. She is an elf. Elfish hair, elfish ears, elfish balloons.
