Roddenberrys Star Trek always had the message that all human differences of the past are history. Now after Chekov, Sulu, Worf, Chakotay and Bashir (ain't he intended to be somehow Arabian?) is with Annika Hansen Germany joining the club?
"Annika" and "Hansen" are really very common German names. Furthermore she exhibits some stereotypical German attributes: Blond, tall, no sense of humor, a neck for science and technology, a military posture and tone of voice (at times she even bosses Janeway around), big fan of punctuality and relevance...
On the other hand neither her mother nor her aunt have German names. Her fathers name (Magnus) is rarely used nowadays in Germany but I wouldn't say it's an unusual name.
Does anybody know if she was intended to be "germanish"? Are there even in-universe references to proof or refute this?
