So I was playing Everything Old is New and something's been bugging me with this mission for a while now. Isn't it a bit racist to have one of what, 3 named starfleet officers on the map be a black woman named "Lt. Simian?" I'm not an overtly sensitive person, so when something sticks out to me like that, it's gotta be sticking out like a sore thumb for other people. Anyone else get this thought?
If you walk into a situation looking for a problem you'll find one even where none existed. Hypersensitivity to the possibility of racism creates as many problems as racism itself, it's a vicious trait that only serves to re-enforce the very thing it's supposed to oppose.
In the end it's just name, and there can be no doubt that there were no racial overtones in choosing it for that character.
