If they weren't visibly camp, how would you know?
Camp means "deliberate ridiculous," with respect I don't think you're using the term correctly here.

There could have been any number of crew seen in the shows that were gay - it's just that we didn't see their personal lives.
That doesn't really work. Star Trek is a show, if gays were referred to, but just not seen, you could then make the statement you just did. The fact of the matter is there are simply no gays on Star Trek, in any form.
'Camp' ? You could be right, but it seemed preferable to some of the alternatives - what would you suggest ?

I am still not convinced that failing to address alternative sexualities means that they do not exist or worse still, that they no longer exist.
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
