Such a shame, indeed - especially for a show so otherwise diverse!
Brannon Braga, a writer/producer on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has spoken out about his time on both series, and claims now that he regrets that he and the team behind the sci-fi franchise have not ever included a single gay character!
“It was a shame for a lot of us. It was not a forward-thinking decision. [Had the series aired today, the creative teams] wouldn’t have been squeamish.”
Well, there's always the opportunity to rectify past mistakes in future additions to the Strek Trek world!
Maybe in the new J.J. Abrams movie Spock can come out!
LOLz! We could CERTAINLY get behind that kind of creative direction!
What do U think?? Should there be gay characters in Star Trek??
