->When I was thrown out of college I got a job on Madison Avenue in New York. A real dyed-in-the-wool advertising agency on Madison Avenue, wanted a man to come in, and they'd pay him ninety-five dollars a week to sit in their office and look Jewish. They wanted to prove to the outside world that they would hire minority groups, y'know. So I was the one they hired. I was the show Jew at the agency. I tried to look Jewish desperately. Used to read my memos from right to left all the time. They fired me finally, 'cause I took off too many Jewish holidays.

->While you muscle your fair share of disenfranchised immigrants, all the major controlling villains are as white as the polar bear bukkake shoot. There's even a chapter where you take on a [[GunNut militia of redneck assholes with the second amendment firmly wrapped around their shriveled, vestigial cocks]]--which strikes me as terribly ungrateful to the demographic who were keeping the modern warfare shooter afloat up to now! Meanwhile, the main character is Cuban, (I think; I picked up subtle hints to that effect after they brought it up [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy seven million times]]) and by the end of the game, he's assembled a little Scooby gang of allies so perfectly ethnically diverse that they could all line up in order and start a novelty act called 'The Amazing Human Gradient'.

->''"On the surface of it, ''Voyager'' has a very diverse cast. The captain is a woman; the first officer is a Native American; the operations officer is Asian. Even the aliens are diverse. Tuvok is a Vulcan played by an African American; Torres is half-Klingon, but her human half is latina. It feels like it continues the trend set by ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' of featuring a diverse ensemble, with a particular emphasis on the female captain. So, by rights, Caretaker should feel like a celebration of diversity, right? Unfortunately, not. Despite the fact that the show has a wonderful diverse central cast, Caretaker is very clearly built around the one white male American character in the group...His middle name is even 'Eugene', in a nod to ''Star Trek'' creator Gene Roddenberry. Itís worth noting that Tom Paris would be one of the handful of ''Voyager'' characters to actually get a character arc spanning the series, and whose character development by Endgame involves a bit more than the sentence 'Ö [[TheGenericGuy is now seven years older.]]'"''

->Travis is the black character of which each Star Trek series [[TokenMinority need at least one]]. He is a boomer, which is future-slang for a person who lives on an Earth cargo-ship...Since ''Enterprise'' was going to be travelling to areas of space where cargo-ships had been before, Travis was assigned as the ship's helmsman because he knew his way around. You'd think that this would make him an important cast member, and that he would have frequent meetings with Captain Archer in order to advise him about the various aliens they meet on their trek. Well [[InformedAbility that just doesn't happen]]. Travis is the most under-used main character in ''Star Trek'', and he's lucky if he gets [[MandatoryLine three lines per episode]]. This complete lack of presence has made him [[GiftedlyBad legendary among the fans.]] It's ironic that Morn, the bar-fly from ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]]'' who (purposely) [[TheSpeechless never spoke a word]], has better character development than Travis.
