It took place in novels, but there were two sisters who served on the StarGazer who were into Klingon culture.
Those would be Michael Jan Friedman's novels. I think they were raised by Klingons? It's been a long time, so I can't quite remember...
Indeed, after their parents were killed, they were rescued by Klingons who ended up raising them. Basically, they the exact opposite of Worf.

What about the crew member in Space Seed who was obsessed with superhumans. You could apply to that any other races that have superior abilities.
Assuming you're referring to Lt. McGivers, she wasn't obsessed specifically with superhumans, her obsession was with history. Her attraction to Khan was because he was from the past, not because he was genetically engineered.

Actually, now that I think of it, I always figured Worf for someone who was acting like how he thought a Klingon should, learning about them from books and such instead of living the culture.

I'm not sure Worf was COMPLETELY divorced from the Klingon culture--he was probably most like the monks on Boreth.
They writers agree with you, as this issue was addressed on the show more than once. Only in his later (DS9) years did Worf come to grips with "real" Klingon culture and life, with no small assistance from Jadzia. He was merely playing an idealized, "text book" version of what he thought a Klingon should be up to his time on the Enterprise.

I thought Riker's chin acting did a wonderful job at being a Tribble.

Who? I don't recall a human defector who showed up with Spock in Unification Part II.

Re: Why no species fanbois in Star Trek?

There's been a bit of backstory on how various Trek species view other species. The existence of a Klingon restaurant on DS9's promenade shows that there's a market for Klingon cuisine, despite its apparent grossness (their music, not so much.) It's been implied that Vulcans often appear in 24th C pornography. Humans appear to be regarded as useful cannon-fodder given their predominance in Starfleet.

Re: Why no species fanbois in Star Trek?

A human inmate in "Whom Gods Destroy" wears an Andorian suede tabard. I often wondered if he originally owned the fluffly pink bathrobe worn by the facility's Andorian inmate.

A group of dark-skinned humanoids in ST IV wear Zaranite clothing (from TMP). Meanwhile a humanoid woman in ST IV wears Arcturian clothing (also from TMP). Actually, that reminds me, in "The Conscience of the King" - at least in the script - the play of "Hamlet" is being performed in Arcturian-styled clothing.

An Andorian Fast Food outlet (Shop 01-754) is located on the DS9 Promenade [as seen on the directory board in the television special, The Science of Star Trek].

Ensign Stefan DeSeve, who was actually in Face of the Enemy, though he told Picard he was with Spock's movement.
