Star Trek needs more gay.
That would surely doom the franchise because then only gays would go see it or gays and people who see nothing wrong with it, the straight people would not go see it and there are more of them than gays I'd say. Star Trek New Voyages went down the tubes big time when they introduced their gay person, lots of people quit watching it. The same would happen here.
I don't know about everybody else, but New Voyages
did it so badly that it just made me feel uncomfortable. It felt wrong somehow, almost like they were making me feel like I'll be the "token gay" from now on.
