Problem: Scenes that are unavoidable, but boring
Star Trek - Captain Kirk (The Original Series) is a "cowboy", Captain Picard (The Next Generation) and Captain Janeway (Voyager) are different types of rule-sticklers. Picard finds loopholes, Janeway skirts the intent by following them to the letter.
How/When to create deliberately boring characters?
In So You Want To Be A Wizard and its sequels, magic is described very similarly to a programming language.
