For the record, make your characters gay or straight or even neck-bearders. Just don't do it so you can pat yourself on the back that you're so progressive. If it doesn't factor into the story then who gives a shit? Space: The Final Frontier? Get ready for epic adventures of eating broccoli and steam room Titanic sex. And there's artificial intelligence but don't worry because it doesn't matter. Everything you see doesn't matter or pay off so enjoy this episode.
