The existence of this thread makes me happy.

You are all awesome. All 38 pages and counting of you.

Not as awesome as Handsome Phaser Guy, but still awesome.

Suggestions to make the phaser lady better:
Explosion in the background, then it can explain her weird pose.
Make her skin, lips, and make up more greenish for that Vulcan and/or Romulan look. Since their blood are green, their skin shouldn't be as fleshed out.
Of course, move her eyes towards where the phaser is pointing at.
Add a few small scratches on her uniform or dust it up a little. Right now it s too clean right now to be in combat.
Lastly, lessen the cleavage a little. Right now, her uniform doesn't look like it has been unzipped, it just looks like it is a low cut top.

Phaser Dude isn't gone, he just got a new home -

There were some complaints that STO didn't have enough equality so they moved him out and brought in the big... "eared"... lady.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
Warning, this poster tends to talk nonsensically when caffine levels fall below 80%.

A simple explanation is that the reddish tint is more... appealing to male viewers than a green tint.

Seriously, if they put a Romulan there then I'm pretty sure people would have started expecting to play a Romulan. If that functionality isn't made available then you've got heaps of unhappy people.
Pretty much this. I say save any pictures of Romulans for if/when they release a Romulan faction.

If I recall correctly, the path to 2409 (RIP) did allow for non-federation species to enlist in Starfleet, so Romulans can certainly sign up, not that I think she's Romulan.

The problem isn't all in our heads. It's in society. It's in you guys saying the problem isn't real.
These aren't internal sexism issues, they're issues women have to deal with ever day of our lives. Until you've walked a day in a woman's shoes, surrounded with images of what women should be according to men, feeling the gazes of men on your body, fearing for your safety when walking alone in the afternoon because it's a real possibility that some man might come and force you to have sex with them (they censored the actual word for this action for some reason) because what are women but sex objects anyways, don't say it's all in our heads.
This is our society. This is the problem.

Back to the subject at hand.
In Star Trek, our society has advanced past seeing women predominantly as sex objects. This problem is no more.
But PWE obviously didn't get the memo with this image of this Vulcan woman with the vacant expression. But we all know how they're all about profit and that sex sells. And look at the way women are portrayed in all their other games. They're just another part of the problem.

All I want is for them to use the same kind of imagery in their marketing for both males and females. Handsome Phaser Dude looked good. A woman in the same style uniform as him would be great. I'm just asking for equality.
