Re: Humanoid Sexuality in TrekLit (Minor Spoilers for VGD: Declassifie Having seen how the industry went apeshit over the "reveal" that Rawhide Kid was gay, I have to note that I expect the same would happen if that were to happen in Trek. In other words, it's "perfectly OK" for a gay character to experiment or be attracted to the opposite sex but if Scotty or Chekov or Vaughn were to have a fling with the "one man they were attracted to" the feces would hit the nacelles. And no, Trill's don't factor into that. Nor, generally do women experimenting with women, as that's written - generally - for pure titillation. In real-life, that's part of why they cast only women in the TNG episode "The Outcast," despite cast members pushing for male actors to be cast (well, that combined with Rick Berman's "rumored" homophobia, and the times in which it was written).
