Part of the appeal of simming, and Star Trek more generally, is in Gene Roddenberry’s vision of a brighter future. Throughout our diverse community, we have a wide spectrum of people who identify differently in terms of gender and sexuality. From the androgynous monogendered J’naii to the tri-gendered Laudeans, Star Trek gives us space to explore these aspects of human experience widely.
Our community even has the Lambda Alliance forum to support those who either identify with the LGBT community, consider themselves allies or who wish to know more and perhaps try simming a point of view different to their own!
What we want to ask is, whatever your character’s gender and sexual orientation are, what brought you to choose them?
Maybe you had not even thought much about it until now, or maybe you tend to choose the same you identify with. Or maybe not, maybe you wanted to give visibility to some option or explore the stories your choice could bring. Come to the forums and tell us!
This is a new post in our category Simming Questions. Here we will be asking questions about our community, our characters and our writing, and how you interact with it all.
