Welcome to Star Trek Answers. What would you like to know?

Obese people are perfectly welcome in the Federation, as there is no discrimination. However, as I answered in your other question, Starfleet is a paramilitary organization, so its members would certainly have to be physically fit to perform their duties, just like in a modern military.


What about John Candy as Pvt. Dewey Oxberger, in Stripes? ProfessorTrek 05:36, July 1, 2011 (UTC)Edit

Judging by Kirk in Generations, Scotty in all of the TOS movies, and Uhura in Star Trek III, IV, V, & VI, fat people are not only welcomed in the Federation and Starfleet, but seem to have the best jobs of anyone. And Spock might not be fat, but his face is as wrinkled as a shar pei.

Wow! Someone up there sure embraces the ideals of tolerance upheld by the Federation! 00:13, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
