I'd say Imperial navy is debatable too. The Imperial armed forces are pretty chauvinistic on the whole - the assumption is that military personnel will be male*. Unlike Eldar and Tau where female soldiers are just there because gender isn't seen as important to a soldier, in the Imperium female military personnel are seen as exceptions to the rule and there's usually an explanation why the exception has occurred. For instance, the Sisters of Battle are the main military arm of the Ecclesiarchy because they're forbidden to have "men under arms", and having women
under arms is a loophole that still allows them to have a standing army.
That said, I'm not especially familiar with the IN fluff, so it's possible that ship crews don't have the same assumption that the ground forces do. There may be other ways to have a female captain (or admiral) that fits the fluff. (Does the Ecclesiarchy have its own ships? Would they also have female crews? Might a ship having a favour of the Ecclesiarchy result in having a female crew?)
The Imperium is in some ways less likely to care what sex you are as long as you can fight and die for Him. However this will vary depending on the world they recruit from - some will be male dominated, some female, some neither.
Its not really that debatable as there are various female navy officers in the fluff - going all the way back to the HH
. The Black library novels have lots. Same with the Guard - but there they usually segregate the regiments - otherwise as Commissar Cain confirms "you have to deal with inevitable results of fraternisation - jealousy, fights, pregnancy etc."
FFG - where for instance the Chaos light Cruiser ship is directly taken from have lots of female navy officers.
Lots of female Inquisitors.
Chaos Champions can be either sex, Chaos Marines only male - except maybe Some Slaanesh "experiments" and maybe the same with Tzeenetch
Personally the more variety in the pics and voice acting the better - I'd also like to be able to select the image for a given ship captain - help forge that narrative.
Imperial - Lady Lukara (8), Chaos - Abraxus (8), Eldar - Flower of Carnage (2) , Orks - Big Bazza (6), Wolve - Floki (6)
