>So Beershark, the ONLY reason Chekov was developed as a character was to attract young females?

>He was based on Davy Jones and he was made a Russian for the same reason Worf was put on the bridge during TNG - to prove old enemies can become allies.
>In all drama we need for the main characters to voice their thinking, knowledge and express how they made mistakes when they were young to give the benefit of wisdom etc...this is a key dramatic principle
>That's why Wesley and Picard's relationship is so strong - Sosko and Jake are so close - Archer helps develop Mayweather into a more balanced officer. Yes Hoshi is young and less experienced in space, but Mayweather was moulded by Archer, who he in turn emulated - and when Chekov stated about Demora Sulu "I was never that young" Kirk could put a fatherly hand on his shoulder and remind him "...you were younger"
