    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    IMDB says her name is hyphenated.

    La'an "Noonien-Singh"

    So her name is not Singh at all. ;)

    Data's daddy, Noonien washis Christian name, and it was Khan's Middle name.

    Dog whistles for sure, but no direct family tree?

    The hyphen implies that one parent was a Noonien and the other a Singh. Or maybe Khan's name was Noonien-Singh and they just didn't use the hyphen.

    "Christian name"? What century did you drop in from? :lol:

    If he has stumbled into the Trekbbs by accident he has bigger issues than a single thread about his character. His soul is now stuck here and only will be allowed to escape if T'Bonz wills it.

    Imagine being the guy playing Kyle and finding a 32-page thread about him where not one person has anything bad to say about his character or the way he's playing him.

    I think he's a lot cuter than John Winston.

    Oh, I concur with your opinion, definitely. But still,

    I only skimmed the first and the last few pages of this thread, but no, I don't personally think the SNW Kyle is the same guy we saw on TOS. But Kyle's a fairly common name.

    Roddenberry probably wanted everyone on Trek to be polyamorous. He's one of the few TV producers I could imagine producing a porn parody of his own show.

    Nothing bad to say about the character, but I was frustrated with the ridiculous number of call-back names. In one ship, 11 years before TOS, we've got:

    Chapel
    M'Benga
    Kyle
    Uhura
    Kirk

    If this is Pike era, I want to see Pike crew. Pike, Number One, Spock -- those make sense. But where's Jose Tyler? Where's Dr. Boyce? Where's any number of new characters they could have made up instead of inserting names that make no sense?

    Then the one genuinely interesting and new character (Number One #2) is "Noonian-Singh"?!?

    That kind of lazy fan-pandering (all of it, not just Noonian-Singh) makes the universe a very small place. I feel like by the end of the series, EVERY single character we know from TOS will somehow associated with the Enterprise a decade before TOS.

    The upside is most of these characters, even Uhura are really not that filled out so in many ways they are just like new characters. As for Pike's crew the only one I miss is Boyce and after that it would be 2 from the comic books in Comm officer Nano and chief engineer Moves-With-Burning-Grace.

    That' what fans want. A smaller universe, very interconnected, and more characters they are familiar with. It gives a sense of comfort, I feel like. Like a very small town feel, where everyone knows your name.

    Boyce, Tyler, don't make the cut.

    If this thread indicates anything, it's that fans want all kinds of things, often contradictory.

    Oh, most definitely. Others have noted but it bears repeating: once SNW was being produced the questions would abound about where Kirk, Scotty, etc. are. So while I disagree with it they are getting out in front of predictable demands.
