If the gender roles were completely flipped in Trek so that we have only one black dude and a blond scientist among the main cast I wonder how people would react to the gender balance?
If the movies were otherwise as entertaining as they were? Pretty much exactly the way I've reacted to the actual films. I might have briefly wondered why the wholesale switch, but it would have been a passing thought, nothing more (same as when Starbuck and Boomer were women in the BSG reboot or having Joan instead of John Watson on Elementary).
