I'm the complete opposite. When I'm reading Trek Lit I really don't differentiate between TV characters or Lit characters, to me they're all just the characters in the book. I like Choudhury, Cambridge, and Vaughn just as much as Worf, Troi, or Kira.
This is my feeling exactly. As long as it is a well written character and is a part of a good story, I am there.
