Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

To be honest, what bothers me more than the lack of women is the over abundance of white people. Aside from the Uhura and Sulu, Captain Robau and a nameless Vulcan with no dialogue were the only non-white characters in Trek XI (excluding the Orion girl, who was played by a white actress anyway), and I can't think of any in STID. In fact, if rumours pan out (and I emphasize if and rumours) than STID has cast a white guy to play an Indian character originally portrayed by a Latino actor.

In all honesty, whether it's a result of laziness from the production staff or studio meddling, the Abrams Trek movies aren't really aspiring to feature anyone other than white males.
