C'mon, dude, TOS! !960s! What did you expect? TV had nothing BUT one dimensional, celluliod, action figures.
All true, which doesn't make TOS something it's not. One could easily argue that the final failing of modern Trek producers is that they did so little to correct the "emasculation" of Trek characters that was required in earlier decades of television, rather than that they somehow introduced it - they really didn't.

Time simply finally caught up with the inherent conservatism of Trek's storytelling style. I'm hoping the new movie will begin to correct that.
