Clever Combination

Combining non-human qualities with an attractive human appearance - a clever move by the producers?

Picture I absolutely think the combining the two most watched elements was a clever move on their part. Thatís the fun of the characters, that dichotomy. The fact that she has this overtly sexual outward appearance. She has no concept of her own sexuality, at least initially, and was completely oblivious to whatever reaction that might get from the male crew members or people that she encounters. I think the fun of the character, at least, for me, is that she was such an outsider, and she was so far from being human, initially, no matter how human she looked on the outside.
