    Gene wasn't thrilled with most of the TOS movies, he has also been dead for a majority of the franchise now, who cares what he would think.

    That and most of what he wanted in Star Trek was rewritten or decided against before we saw the final product, mostly for the better.

    If Gene had his way, Spock would have been the one to assassinate JFK.

    In the future please do all your comments about current Trek in spoiler tags - that way they're so much easier on the eyes.

    Besides, who doesn't think that Gene would've found an attractive bisexual woman hot and would've included one openly if he could've gotten away with it?

    Troi would have had 4 breasts.

    I don't know why I keep remembering that.

    I don't understand. So a character is bisexual. What's the issue? How is that "woke?"

    Why do you think that?

    I don't understand. Nothing in TOS says or implies that Chapel is straight rather than bisexual, so what's the problem?

    TOS pretty consistently implies that Chapel is Spocksexual.

    And that she (in the end) DOESN'T care for 'mechanical assistance'...:whistle:;)

    You have no idea of what Roddenberry would have thought, and your assertions should be understood to be without the merit of understanding.

    There is nothing the producers need "learn" from your opinions.

    Go watch the end of TOS S1 - "What Are Little Girls Made Of".

    I've seen it. She is heartbroken that the person she was going to marry is dead and has been replaced by a murderous duplicate without a conscience. I still don't understand what you mean when you said "she doesn't care for 'mechanical assistance.'"

    And of course we have Behr talking about what Roddenberry wanted to show in Captain's Holiday. And I don't remember which producer was talking about what he wanted to see background in 1st seasons Justice, makes me think that he wouldn't be bothered by this much at all, probably the reverse is true.

    Gene might not be interested in seeing a show properly portray a bisexual. But I would bet my retirement that he would have loved the stereotypical male fantasy of a bisexual woman.

    I don't think any of us are under any illusions that Roddenberry would want his mistress to make our with another woman for anything but the wrong reasons.

    Oh and to add there are absolutely bisexuals out there that love providing a stereotypical treat to their spouse. As long as it's their desire, that's great for them. If its doing it because its the only socially acceptabley way to express themselves that's another story.
