I'd think most of the civies on Enterprise were scientists of various sorts. Keiko sure fits that role. You'd also have your odd historian, linguist, and the like. They are supposed to be the tip of Starfleet's exploration arm, after all.
You perceive wrongly. I feel unimaginable happiness wasting time talking with women. I'm that type of human.
