  It's funny you should say that, because I never actually *noticed* that the characterization in a lot of sf was "rudimentary".  I mean, at this point in my life there are some recurring cliche elements I can recognize in sf (both in terms of characterization and in terms of plot), but it took me a long time to get to the point where I started noticing things like that.
