It is more than slightly pathetic Trek has never shown an LGBT character. In the 60s such a thing would've been a step too far, even in the 80s when TNG started, I doubt many in power would've been willing to show a gay character on screen. But by the time of DS9 there should've been some movement made towards it (the Dax/Kahn kiss doesn't count as that was a romance bewteen the Symbionts, not the hosts). There definitely should've been representation in VOY and its pretty much unforgivable when ENT came along. Whilst NuTrek should hang its head in shame for not finally admitting the true relationshipn between Kirk and Spock! When we get a new Trek series, there should be a gay male captain, a bisexual female first officer, a gay female ops manager, a transgender security chief, a bisexual male doctor, and a gender-neutral engineer, in order to finally right the wrong--with heterosexuals in place as science officer, counsellor and conn officer. Ok, maybe a slight exaggeration, but they would have to make sure that their gay character was done properly and not just given a lip service--with more to who they are and what drives them other than their orientation.
