Re: 53 Reasons Why We Need a New Star Trek TV Series
The time to make a statement about a gay character on Trek passed long ago. When one is included, it shouldn't be used to define the character (it shouldn't appear in any press releases, etc), but just be one small facet of who they are. So that when he/she has a same sex partner, it is done so in a non-hyped manner. Its just a person engaging in a healthy, happy relationship.
I agree, Bry_Sinclair
, Trek lost out on being cutting edge in relation to gay people long ago.
