Re: Which character has changed the least in the new universe?

Kirk has explicitly changed from The Original Series - his father died, who we're told was his inspiration for joining Starfleet the first time around. The rest I put down to differences in actor interpretation and youth.

Spock is more volatile (although perhaps no more, having come to terms with himself), McCoy has some meat on his bones, Uhura's more driven, Scotty's more fiery, Chekov's somehow even more enthusiatic (and sprouted transporter skills) and Sulu brings his sword on away missions. Pike is no longer a sexist jerk.

I do wonder if Scotty Prime also beamed Admiral Archer's beagle into oblivion and spent time on Delta Vega....
