I've Got My New Character Concept

For mysteries, it’s the gumshoe; romance novels, the busty maiden; fantasy novels, the young adventurer; political thrillers, the idealistic lawyer.

In science fiction, the archetypal hero is the starship captain – doughty scientist-explorers setting off across the uncharted reaches of the cosmos in search of new life, new civilizations.
~ Erik David Even,
The Top Twenty Starship Captains

Obviously I need a busty idealistic gumshoe adventure lawyer starship captain. Yowza!!
