I've been re-watching Deep Space Nine and I got to thinking...with all of this Star Trek Into Darkness talk, what TNG-era character ancestor would you like to see in the upcoming movies? Of course I don't mean Guinan, Soran, or the Borg which was already discussed, but the ancestor of a TNG era character. I was thinking about it, and it seems to me that Chief O'Brien would seem to fit into this new era. I would love to see an ancestor of O'Brien, maybe an Edward or a Séamus O'Brien as maybe an engineer's mate or petty officer aboard the Enterprise or another ship and I would love for Colm Meaney to play that person, but looking a little different. Let's say his hair is short and red, or black and he's got green or hazel eyes or something. Looking like an O'Brien, but not looking exactly like Chief O'Brien. Whom do you think would be a good fit from the TNG era as an ancestor?
