we have Alden, who is the “black” character in charge of communications and is shown taking part in repairs
Interestingly, Lloyd Haynes was hired to be a series regular as Alden, but was dropped by Roddenberry after the second pilot. He doesn't make much of an impression in the episode, unfortunately, but it's interesting to speculate what the series might have been like with him on board.
How could he make any kind of impression since he basically has nothing to do?
