PR headline: "Star Trek to introduce the first non-binary character!"
Dax: Am I a joke to you 😐
And then there's Odo. He presents as male but it's pretty darn arbitery for a specie that lacks both gender and genitals (and can form any that "he" wishes to have - oh Kira you lucky girl.)
I guess my point is that what Star Trek really needs is more gender fluid plots and stories that mix into the fabric of the universe in a natural fashion instead of claiming they've just invented something that's been around since TNG.
@polychrome i think the idea is that they're explicitly enby/trans characters played by explicitly enby/trans actors, instead of just being written as metaphors for such in a way that's just not explicit enough to get banned by rick berman
@devurandom well, I guess... tho personally I always perceived Dax as either gender fluid or "above gender" - it wasn't only obvious to me but I also took her as somewhat of a role model.
