Biologically, the Syreen are basically human, so there is a possibility. Personally I'm okay with it because "why not?" It doesn't have to be an issue of overeating, after all there are no fat Earth women either, they all just have endocrine disorder.

I guess Moosey was present at the Organon ambush. It would have been such a shame to waste all these delicious mushrooms...

It was probably a bad idea to have them all fried in butter though!

More like sarcasm. Comes from experience, meant to be exaggerative.

Syreen have some biological differences from humans, one of which may be obesity genes. But outside of genetics, the Syreen culture is existence in space on starships, and is decidedly militarily structured, because if we learned anything from "Maid of Honor" "Astronauts are military". Following the cataclysm of Syra, doubtless programs were enacted to ration food supplies. With resources ever in demand, a Syreen that's getting fatter and fatter would not go unnoticed.

Ergo, CAN Syreen get fat? Perhaps.
DO they get fat? Likely not.

Maybe they're ALL super-fat and just use their mad psychic powers to make us THINK they're not. They do have the psychic ability to attract the males of ANY species. Part of that would surely be making themselves appear attractive based on whatever qualities the species in question places value in.

Seriously, though, I'd be inclined to believe that Syreen come in all the same shapes and sizes as humans.

I would agree with the idea that supplies were probably rationed while they were living in the fleet (before the Ur-Quan gave them a planet to live on.) However, being fat doesn't always equate to overeating. There are also genetic factors that contribute to our body shapes, so I don't believe that they're all supermodels just because they needed to ration food for a few generations.

The game(s) put the focus on the hot ones because that's the trope they fill in the storyline.

the males of any species? they can get the entire ship's crew except the captain ;). so either the crew of these ships is all male, or they attract females/whatevers aswell.
