Ow, the gender essentialism! But I was interested to see that Zephram Cochrane showed up in Star Trek before the First Contact movie - though I admit I like surly old man Cochrane better.

Actually, that's true of a lot of the Star Trek features that get reintroduced in the later movies and TNG: Khan, the Klingons, the Romulans, etc. all get a lot more depth rather than just being one or two off foes of the day (well, more, for the Klingons).

1960s episodic television was a very different place, my friend.
