Star Trek-TOS365:002

Gene Roddenberry对《星际旅行》的初始设定包括对五个主要角色的描述:

"Robert M.April——'舰长',大约34岁,他是个太空时代的霍恩布洛尔[1]船长。精干,在意志和体格上都足以胜任这一职位……有着丰富多彩的复杂个性……强大的行动和决策能力,近似一个英雄人物,同时也不断对抗着自我怀疑和领导者的孤独。"

当试播集上映的时候,April已经改名为“Christopher Pike”,但其他细节还是相同的。事实上,当剧集上映时,上述大部分形容依然适用于取代了Pike的那位舰长:James T.Kirk。但有一个重大的区别:James  Kirk 绝不会承认“自我怀疑”的情感,也不会沉陷于“领导者的孤独”。企业号是他生命中唯一永恒之物,像一个苛求的情人,让他没时间去感受孤绪。

"副舰长——总是被称为'Number One',是位女性。她堪称是位神秘佳人,那种尼罗河谷风情的苗条和深黯……而且是非常高效的军官……"

“Number One”这一称呼出现在“鸟笼(The Cage)”一集,但拥有这一称呼的女大副也只存在于短命的试播集。二十三年之后,在《星际旅行:下一代》中,Roddenberry将“Number One”这个称谓给了剧中进取号上的大副(男性)。

"船医——Phillip Boyce,一个不怎么像太空旅者的家伙。五十一岁,老成世故,还有种带着幽默感的愤世嫉俗……April船长唯一的知己,'老骨头'Boyce……对他而言,每次新的登陆恼人的程度远大于兴奋。"

以上这些很好地总结了Leonard “Bones” McCoy的性格。

"中尉——舰长的得力助手,在工作层面上统筹运作着整艘舰船的全部功能……他的名字是'Spock先生'。他给人的第一印象几乎是可怕的……也许他是个半火星人,有着略微偏红的肤色和尖耳朵。但奇怪的是,Spock先生撒旦式的外表与他安静的气质恰好形成巨大的反差。"

Spock的确成了舰长的得力臂助,代替了“Number One”成为大副。虽然尖耳朵依旧保留下来,但他将出生在一个不同的世界,这导致了皮肤色调的改变。

"舰长的文书士'colt',有着一头金发,以及制服也无法掩饰的好身材……担任Robert April的秘书、报告员和簿记员……她很聪明,但非常女性化,令人困扰的事儿。"

在《鸟笼(The Cage)》这一集里,文书士Colt是个金发碧眼的甜心姑娘,当《星际旅行》正式上映时,Rand文书士是个闪亮的,更为传统意义上的金发女郎。在“制服都掩盖不住的好身材”这一点上,两位女演员都堪称完美。

[1]霍恩布洛尔(Hornblower)船长,塞西尔·史考特·福雷斯特(Cecil Scott Forester)创作的十一部系列小说的主人公,以及1999年-2005年英国8集系列电视电影的主角。详细介绍:

Gene Roddenberry’s original pitch for Star Trek included descriptions of five main characters:

Robert M.April-The‘skipper’,about thirty-four...a space age Captain Hornblower,lean and capable both mentally and physically…a colorfully complex personality…capable of action and decision which can verge on the heroic-and at the same time lives a continual battle with self-doubt and loneliness of command.

By the time the show went to pilot,April had been rechristened “Christopher Pike”,although other details remained the same.And,in fact,much of the above also fits the persona of the captain who would replaced Pike when the show finally hit the airwaves,James T.Kirk.One big difference:James Kirk would never admit to feelings of “self-doubt ”,nor would he dwell on “the loneliness of command”.The Enterprise would be the only permanent fixture in his life,a demanding mistress who left no time for loneliness.

The Executive Officer-Never referred to as anything but “Number One”,this officer is female.Almost mysterious female,in fact-slim and dark in a Nile Valley way…An extraordinarily efficient officer…

Number One appeared in“The Cage”,but she didn’t survive beyond that doomed pilot.Twenty-three years later,in Star Trek:The next Generation,Roddenberry would refer to the (male)first officer of that show’s Enterprise as “Number One”.

Ship’s doctor-Phillip Boyce,an unlikely space traveler. At the age of fifty-one, he’s worldly,humorous cynical…Captain April’s only real confidant, “Bones”Boyce…measures each new landing in terms of relative annoyance,rather than excitement.

All of which pretty much sums up the personality of Leonard “Bones” McCoy.

The first Lieutenant-the captain’s right-hand man,the working level commander of all the ship’s functions…His name is “Mister Spock”.And the first view of him can be almost frightening…Probably half Martian,he has a slightly reddish complexion and semi-pointed ears.But strangely,Mr.Spock’s quiet temperament is in dramatic contrast to his satanic look…

Spock was indeed become the captain’s right-hand man,replacing Number One as the first officer.His ears would remain semi-pointed,but he would be born on a different world,resulting in skin of an altered hue.

The captain’s Yeoman-“colt”…blonde and with a shape even a uniform could not hide…Serves as Robert April’s secretary,reporter,bookkeeper…she is not dumb;she is very female,disturbingly so.

In “The Cage”,Yeoman Colt was a strawberry blonde;when Star Trek eventually went to series,Yeoman Rand was a flasher,more traditional blonde.As for “a shape even a uniform could not hide”,both actresses that direction to perfection.
