Re: Why Not A Starfleet Ships Chaplain As A Main Character?
I think Star Trek has, for better or worse, done anywhere from a somewhat neutral to incredibly bad job of portraying spirituality, and I don't find the idea of Trek dealing with the subject at greater length, especially in the form of a regular character, an encouraging one.
....though it might be interesting to see how that would play off an openly gay main character.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
