You've achieved, "Vice Admiral," level in the TrekBBS which means you have posted thousands of times - correct? If you haven't relaized by now that a lot of sci-fi fans like to complain about everything for complaining sake - something's wrong.

Which actually posses me off generally about sci-fi. As gay man, I wanna know why there are hardly any gay characters at all in any of sci-fi?

Trek - nope
Wars - zilch
Babolyn 5 - none
BSG - none
Stargate - zero

WTF???

The 1970s was much too early to expect to see a Gay character, but, NuBSG has Felix Gaeta

B5, although no main or recurring characters were Gay, there was a time or two when there was a couple guys sitting together at a table, and looked like far more than just friends. And of course, you had Stephen and Marcus posing as a Gay Married Couple.

WH13 - has Jinks as a Gay man, and they even had an episode with tension between him and his ex.

But, yea, it would be great if we could have even one unambiguously Gay Main character in a Space Opera that actually lived a life that included being Gay (And that he wasn't stereotypically limp wristed and swishy and calling out "Hey Girl" all the time)

If nope, zilch, none, none and zero is your definition of hardly any... then what would you call absolutely none?

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Jadzia made out with Voyager's Borg Queen?

Ratings gimick bullshit.

The Ferengi were all as gay as they needed to be. One of the rules of acquisition is always have sex with the boss, and you know that women are forbidden from working, leaving the house or wearing clothes. It's a big gay planet. Meanwhile DS9 had an entire spare universe where it kept all it's other gays.

There was an episode of Celebrity death Match (claymation farce, late 90s) where the commentator described a death match as the Centurions from Battlestar galactica vs. the two gay robots from Star Wars.

Watch the BSG webisodes face of the Enemy. Felix Geata has a boyfriend. I think it's Hoshi? Hoshi is like the (TNG) Miles O'Brien of BSG.

Ivanoa completely slept with Talia in B5, and they were flirting from the outset. meanwhile it was only a cover by Stephen and Marcus posed as a legally sanctioned married couple on their secret mission to mars and Marcus played an excellent fishwife.

Camile raye on Stargate Universe... And almost every Goul'd. Queens are very, very very rare. Not unicorn rare, but one in a thousand, y'know. When the Tokra lad was describing his relationship with Jolinar to Sam it became clear that the snake decides what human meat it is going to wear, wich does not necessarily reflect it's own physiology. So read that how you will that it seems that Earth decided to destroy the spacegays becuase it was the decent thing to do.

Oh, well if we're including females, Don't forget Admiral Cain and her Six. And in Firefly Inara had female customers as well and was attracted to Saffron

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

It does seem sexist to suggest that lesbians don't count, but really the sort of abortion clinic bombing asshole who opposes homosexuality on moral and spiritual grounds with every fibre in his being isn't usually talking about girl on girl.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Bill Adama's uncle was gay on Caprica, and Clarice Willow was in a multiple person marriage that I believe included members of both sexes, although I can't remember how much was established or implied about who slept with who there.

They can make the oldest sun on the show gay and cast me as his boyfriend. :-]

We go back 30 years and watch V: The Series. Alexsis = Elizabeth, grey dust = red dust.

I knew I'd seen this show before.

And more magic than ever.

And apparently the Volm's ultimate goal is to become our babysitters.

But Karen's dead! Woo-hoo.

Haters can go on hating. I'll be back for more next season.
