She sucked so bad they didn't even bother giving her a first name on-screen.
By that logic, Sulu was the second-suckiest character, because they didn't officially give him a first name until the last TOS movie.
Sulu was a crap character too. Seriously people bitch and moan about characters in the other shows, such as Travis, Hoshi, Harry Kim, Deanna Troi etc. and for TOS the big "3" were all that show had character-wise that was worth investing time in. Scotty was also good, nothing wrong with him. But as for Sulu, Uhura, and Chekov they were pointless characters that served little purpose on the show. The main purpose they had was to show there was diversity in the future and women could have high positions. But as characters they flat out stunk up the joint. Many people look at TOS as the holy grail and feel the characters are iconic but those 3 weren't much to write home about.
