* '''Gene/Jean''': Chief engineer, with the twist that he's a "transmute," with both male and female chromosomes and both sets of hormones . Thus, as Gene, he's a {{Jerkass}}, but as Jean complete with a [[CrossDressingVoices female voice]] , she's a TechnicalPacifist.
* '''Ficus Pandorata''': TheSpock taken to the extremes, he's a "Vegeton," a member of [[PlantAliens sentient plant race]]. He always speaks with SpockSpeak, has no emotions at all, cares about no one, and breeds by pollinating.

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreSuperior: Spoofed by Ficus, whose always able to turn these arguments around on Quark. For instance when [[JobStealingRobot Vanessa looks like making the crew redundant]], Ficus concludes that humans are indeed superior, as no other creature could endure the HumiliationConga that Quark has just undergone and [[WarpThatAesop still believe he's relevant]].
