I have no idea what that means, William. How do my "ideas and attitudes" fit with Andorians?
Horatio: Good point. Give me some time to think of the right changes in that area. The thing I want to do with that is to create new dynamics between the characters' backgrounds so that we have interactions that are just as rich and engaging as the TOS crew's, without being identical to them. Remember that a lot of the major Star Trek crews had a certain formula going that had its genesis with the Kirk/Spock/McCoy triad -- while I do want to have a "magnificent seven", I don't want them to be formulaic. I want to give a new set of dynamics between the major characters.
