In Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Trek fans were amused by a character known as “Mr. Adventure,” played by Scott McGinnis, whose desire to escape “the hind end of space” led to his being locked into a closet by Commander Uhura after his wish for a little excitement came true.
Mr. Adventure was so-named after the Starfleet lieutenant told Uhura that “…maybe [peace and quiet is] OK for someone like you, whose career is winding down. But me, I need some excitement, some adventure… maybe even just a surprise or two.”
