Gender choice survey
 
I guess this isn't as interesting as the title suggests.

I'm wondering, how many people select a character on Star Trek Online that is the same gender as you are in real life, and how many select one that's different?

Seems to me that your poll overlooks the fact that every account has two character slots by default and people can buy more.

You mean first character? Main?

My first characters in an MMO tend to be male. After that I might mix things up a bit.

I guess I didn't think about that. Let's just say your main, or currently used character.

I have multiple main characters, some male, some female. It all depends on the archtype or persona I have in mind when I create the character.

Sean - Young gungho captain who tends to get into trouble. Sort of a young Riker/mature Harry Kim hybrid.
Miranda - Imagined as one of the best doctors in Starfleet. So she's sort of based on Crusher and Pulaski.
T'Prenn - Based on the idea of Spock as a Science oriented captain, but I couldn't think of a good Vulcan male name so he became her. The only male name I could think of was Sypher, but I didn't like it.
Jason - A young Borg-liberated human with a deep hatred of the Borg. So I imagined him as a young, angsty/angry version of Locutus complete with bald head.

Four of my five characters are male. However I do sometimes play a sexy ginger trill who commands a ship crewed by mostly sexy ginger trills. I spend more time than I'd like to admit just standing on the bridge and watching them work. :cool:

I've got two characters, both male. I haven't felt any desire to create a female toon.

Every time I try to make a female char in any rp setting I have a dozen guys hitting on said char and it just kinda creeps me out. :p

I have about 22 characters. It's half and half, really. As far as "main" characters go, my Klingon General is female (and actually Klingon,) and my Fed Admiral (human and my first STO character) is also a chick.

I'm half and half on Champions Online also, but my Romulan parody/homage who is my main (and my current avatar on this board) is a guy.

I voted male with an alien female character.

If I am going to spend a lot of time staring at a character, I prefer it to look good. And typically, I feel female characters look better than male.

Female with a Cardassian male character. I modeled him after one of my fanfic characters in appearance.

I also have a Caitian female character and a Nausicaan KDF character (male goes without saying), but I don't play them much. Probably because I identify with the Cardassian better.

What are these settings? I have a female character and I'd love the attention.;)

No one hits on my female characters. :)

Post a picture here, and I'll hit on her.

I'm a male to female transgender, and my character is a misanthropic hermaphrodite fire troll.

Are we all talking about the same game here?
