I know this is a male dominated game but why is it necessary to use big boobs the Vulcan as the image for season seven? They're here for the Trek, not for the women. If they wanted women they could play some other MMO, where the ladies wear not much more than nipple covers and armored panties.
I understood the Orions not wearing much, since they're portrayed all seductive and scantily clad in the show. But you're showing a Starfleet officer, one who appears Vulcan no less, wearing a short skirt and showing off her MASSIVE cleavage.
How do you think this makes the females who play feel? This kinda thing is exactly why I do not tell people I'm an actual female in game. We are massively objectified in game. Now I don't mind guys who play as girls because they want a nice booty to watch run around screen, because they don't usually bother others, and I've even been complained to by one of them about their being hit on randomly in game. What I do mind is then people who proceed to stalk you upon finding out you're a girl.
Guys, control yourselves. We women folk aren't gonna fall head over heels with you because of your avatar or your Mk XII MACO set.
Anyways I digress. I really think PWE needs to reconsider their choice for the cover image of season seven. Ditch the skirt, it's so TOS. Give the poor Vulcan some pants. And guys, her titties don't have to be that big to be attractive. In fact, it's just comical.
And while you're thinking about that, how about thinking about what us ladies would like to see? Lets see some skin on the guys. Let their shirts rip TOS style. Let them roll up their sleeves. Let them take off their shirts altogether. And for equality's sake, give they guys some skirts!!! Kilts, togas maybe, and how about those first season TNG skant uniforms?
Play KDF and make an Orion male character. You can go shirtless, and show off your physique.
Or make your entire bridge crew like that.
IKS Chippendales anyone?
Shirts are for wimps. Subdue your foes with manliness...or something.
Also if I recall correctly the TOS had it's share of semi-clothed persons.
The space elf bridge bunny just tripped with a weapon. Worry more about the people in her vicinity. Ensign redshirt gets hit with a stray phaser beam, and all that's left IS his shirt.

Doesn't anybody have a problem with how freakishly small her arms are?
Especially if you compare them to her chest, which would be further away than her arm in the picture.
Seriously, she looks like some Alien locked her up for several years, without giving her any activity besides producing milk.
Hah wow. Such a simple change, but so much better.
I totally agree about the arms thing. Horrible foreshortening there. It's like the artist tried but when they couldn't pull it off they just blew it off instead of trying again or trying a different pose.
And wow moving the eyes makes a world of difference. I think I'd be a lot less upset if they actually had her checking where she was shooting and appearing more like she knows what she's doing.
Attractive people aren't crude and shallow. The person who drew this kinda is though. The woman isn't an object, she's objectified, meaning more emphasis is being placed on her dreamy longing gaze at the viewer and her gigantic breasts than on her firing that phaser and being a Starfleet officer. It can be argued that her firing a phaser makes her a bit more badass, but it's instantly countered by the fact that she's not looking at what she's shooting. She's posing, if anything. They could've had her actually look determined to bring down her foe, or had her shirt closed, or given her pants so whatever she's running from doesn't get a view if her lovely Vulcan lady parts, but they didn't. They just drew her to be as attractively as they could using their standards of beauty as a guide.
You think attractive people are crude and shallow? You think the woman is an object? You don't think she is being a badass? Why?
The drawing is crude and shallow (the OP described the "image" as crude and shallow), not sure where you got your first sentence. And she's apparently not attractive to quite a few people. She's not an object, but emphasis is put on "her objects", here. lol (I have no problem with that point, however.)
Dreamy falling person not knowing where shooting as badass? Most certainly not.
