However, doyou accept that it is a franchise that has more gender balance?
Does it count as "gender balance" when slightly more than a third of the female characters are exemplars of gender stereotypes?
Compared to what else we have currently, I'd so, "Only a third? That's pretty good!"

I'm sure more than a third of the male characters are based on gender stereotypes too but they are stereotypes for a reason. If two thirds of the women are not gender stereotyped I'd say that's diversity.
Star Trek/Babylon 5/Alien crossover
