So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

"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.

Why could they not put them back to back in a sane pose

but yes Trek has always had Gay fans (and cast members from the begining )

Actually they led the world in that sort of tolerance

You've posted something I completely agree with. I'm exceptionally happy right now. You may not believe it, but it's true.

I just saw T'Boobs! Wow! That makes phaser lady look tame in comparison!

No wonder we gaming geeks get such a bad rep. To the outside world we look like sexist pigs! And they'd be right!

So to the marketers for videogames... could you STOP MAKING US GAMERS LOOK WORSE?!

I feel like I'm going to have to kill 1000 Organians soon.

Cryptic! Need some FREE KDF uniform options that you wont have to make? See Here.

JJ. Trek is just as canon and awesome as all other Trek, Get over it.
