Not sure that I'm that far off in this day and age. Just look at the last film.

Kirk - Alcoholic lowlife who spends his time hitting on women in bars, has a criminal record.

Spock - Sleeping with a student and goes into a violent rampages when you diss his Mama.

Uhura - Uses sleeping with the teacher as a way to get the assignment she wants.

Scott - Takes and tests his transporter theories on defenseless animals.
