He hasn't fought any natural instincts. Coming up with a plan and executing it are totally different things. Especially from the relative safety of a console. It's like saying internet trolls are brave. I'm not saying he's a bad character. If you want to use Star Trek characters, he may very well have a Barclay type of arc where he's shy and skittish to begin with, but ends up being less skittish, but learns to overcome his fears. And Barclay was one of my favorite characters. But he's nowhere near as cool as the other aliens I've mentioned. And right now, he doesn't strike me as anything special. But it's still too early to judge him or this series in general.
