As people have already pointed out, official WC material seems to indicate that people who wear glasses are allowed into military service, so we just saw no reason we shouldn't let it happen in Standoff.Lazy Panda said:Just a notice side notice, the person who is lending the face for Lt. Freyers is wearing glasses. Shouldn't people in need of glasses be mustered out, or has the TCSN different musters for the military than we do?
Mad Cow said:Yeah, there are people in the military with glasses, but it always seemed strange to me that the Black Lance soldier that's checking the cargo pods on the flight deck of the Black Lance starbase has glasses. First, I would think that by the 26th century, eye surgery would be the norm. Second, if it weren't, I couldn't imagine the Black Lance accepting someone with a fault such as poor eyesight.
McGruff said:It would just follow that a relatively small alliance of planets would have a greater demand for military recruits to provide for defense, and would therefore tend to be less choosy about who they let in. Just a guess.
