New Star Trek franchise director J.J. Abrams is making vague promises, now, that he will rectify this situation:
"You know what’s funny? As someone who was never a huge Star Trek fan and I didn’t watch the shows. And my experiences with the movie was the first series and then watching and re-watching some of the movies that I’ve seen. I’m frankly shocked that in the history of Star Trek there have never been gay characters in all the series. In Deep Space Nine and all the Enterprises that that’s never come up."
Come on! Let's get some hot cottaging up in the turbolifts.
