Possible ideas. I, for one, have been curious as to how homosexuality is dealt with by other races in the ST verse. For example, how do Vulcans view it? Do they view it as illogical since since there is no procreation involved? What would be the consequences of a gay Vulcan at his/her first Pon farr and about to be wedded to his/her betrothed? (Especially, you know, with only 10,000 Vulcans left and many of them not in child bearing years.)
Just things to consider.
