Default Marketing 101

I was just thinking about the fine art of marketing. I wonder what Paramount has gleaned from our little board here? Here are my (admittedly amateur) guesses....

70% Male, 30% female
Average age: 28
From the lands west of the Mississippi
Middle-of-the-road to progressive
Aware that Borg/Vulcan boobs are a sign of "jumping the shark."
Concerned about canon but willing to bend on things.
Fans of BBW! (Hey, if Admiral Zardoz likes 'em, we all like 'em.)

Have I forgotten anything? Let the product placement & ad campaigns begin!

I guess I don't get why Vulcans having boobs would be considered "jumping the shark" (and, yes, I understand the phrase..it just seems likely to me that Vulcans lactate and feed their young so would have breasts).

Clearly all the other women in TREK had them, why not Vulcans too?

As I recall, the story of Remus and Romulus couldn't be more about breast-suckling if it tried.

All hail, Trek Fans in Favor of Breasts!

Trek has always used sex appeal. I'm assuming the folks who contribute to this site have seen TOS. I assume Angelique Pettyjohn needs minimal explanation (for those who need refreshing; Kirk's drill thrall). She was rather busty...
