Looks like they figured out a solution to the falling over.

Since she has no concern for landing her back leg this solution above is the only answer. There is no physical way the back leg could be brought forward to continue the run. Even if somehow it was able to get forward the 2 in heel of the boot would hit the ground twist her ankle/leg/knee into a pretzeel.

An invisible alien man (directly decended from Kirk) has grabbed her by the breasts and is holding her up

Sounds plausible.

Clearly this is the answer.

Invisible Groper Descendant from Kirk.... that needs to be a character class alongside Tactical, Engineering, and Science!

She fired, then something caught her eye before her weapon finished cycling.

You really know that you've made it once your website icon gets featured on Escher Girls !
Congratulations STO Website Design Team.
Bravo.
Great job, STO.
Keepin' it classy.

They even had to invent a new iteration of the Hawkeye just for STO.
Long live the Riker.

At this point, anyone who says it's not a pandering, sexist image is just lying to themselves.

So, yeah.
Got your own feature on Escher Girls.

Honestly, with as horrible as the image is ... should've seen it coming.

Escher Girls has picked up the image from the home page. If you're wondering what that means:

Quote:
This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.
1 2 3 so far. More to follow I'm sure.

Cryptic, take note, this is not an "OMG a girl/sexuality/boobs being used to sell something" moment. It is the absurdity of the image itself which is meme-worthy. Walk it back before it spreads and the first thing the general population associates with STO is T'boobs and her memes.

What can you say, sex sells - This is by all means nothing new under the sun - Look at the old cig commercials or the recent Doritos commercials.

Yet, I'm sure they probably see the Victoria's Secret specials as somehow empowering women.
