It’s interesting because we’ve actually given so much thought to some of the more broad strokes, little like story structure issues that are for me the defining issues to how the movie gets made and whether or not I’m directing it and all that kind of stuff.J.J. talks about gay characters in Star Trek
There are many people who say there have been gay characters in the show all throughout.
