: An intelligent, stoic person, generally rounding out the Power Trio
- Straight: Steven is an intelligent, seemingly emotionless man, who acts as a contrast to Kyle and Mark.
- Exaggerated: Steven has absolutely no emotions and does nothing before calculating all of the possible outcomes.
- Downplayed: Steven has above average intelligence & is less emotional(ly expressive) than the other characters. But he still shows emotion, just not as much as the others.
- Justified: Steven comes from a race where pure logic is emphasized, and emotions demonized.
- Inverted: The McCoy
- Subverted: Steven was played up as the Spock, but is less intelligent and/or more emotional than he seemed.
- Double Subverted: ... But it turns out that Steven was roleplaying as someone less intelligent/more emotional than himself.
- Parodied: Some values of Straw Vulcan played for laughs.
- Zig Zagged:
- Steven is the Power Trio in the form of one person, due to either being a Mood-Swinger or having a Split Personality.
- At first Steven appears to be The Stoic, but then he is shown to have wild emotions until someone tells him to get a grip. Then he reverts to his logical side, but still retains a spark of emotion that allows him to make decisions based on his instincts at times, but only after going over them logically ...
- Averted: Steven is just as intelligent and emotional as those around him
- "We're filming Star Trek."
- "We need a character to be the other morality side - we already have one who's emotional and one that's sort of in-between."
- Lampshaded: "Oh, another organic computer with legs. How dull."
- Steven actively tries to be logical and stoic whether his attempts are successful or not.
- A friend or family member teaches Steven how important it is to make keep his emotions under control and think ahead using logic in order to get ahead.
- Exploited: The Big Bad uses his knowledge of Steven's method of solving problems to give him a situation with an extreme moral dilemma where all the sides are equally logical.
- Defied: Steven manages to look on all sides of the issue, both emotional and logical.
- Discussed: "He's really stoic, isn't he? He's always butting heads with Mark."
- Conversed: "Why is there always a guy who runs on pure logic?"
- Deconstructed: Steven's stoic attitude leads to people calling him cold and ruthless, despite the fact that he's supposed to be the good guy.
- Reconstructed: Eventually, though, the people that matter in the story respect him as intelligent and a needed logical facet to the group.
Captain, the most logical course of action would be to go back to The Spock
