As a Star Trek fan, I always wanted to compare some of the
other characters in other shows to some from Star Trek. Roddy was like a headstrong young Kirk (Chris Pine version), Kup was the grumpy old McCoy, Ultra Magnus was like Christopher Pike in that he never got the respect or glory he deserved despite being the would be hero of the day. Springer was the young nice guy and wiz-kid (Checkov). Arcee was the girl (No offense meant; but Arcee was a classic stereotype of the one female character in the 1980s). Which means Sulu must be the fast-talking but results-getting underappreciated one that holds it all together). Uhura in Nu Trek is more like Xena than the stereotype we are used to seeing in older shows and films. I loved Nichelle Nicols but she never got a real chance to shine as bright as her male colleagues in the original Trek.
