And unbalanced by any Jewish characters. No major characters on any flavor of Trek are Jewish; the closest the show has come is with the holographic doctor on Voyager, who has considered the names Zimmerman and Schweitzer. In addition, Worf's parents appear to be Russian Jews. (The father is played by Theodore Bikel.) William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy are Jewish; Nimoy borrowed Spock's "live long and prosper" hand gesture from a rabbinical blessing. And Peter David's Riker/Troi romance novel Imzadi is littered with Hebrew terms as alien names; he began writing it around Passover.
