A time honored TV/movie troupe- 
The unlikely team up- FBI agent and Smithsonian scientist, American cop in London with a British cop, even NCIS got in on it and stayed in on it with a member of the team being first Secret Service, then Mossad, then NSA IIRC. 

So who is teaming up in the Frontier Holovids? Or on RPG teams?

Star Law and Royal Marines, Space Fleet and the MSO, what about Ground Fleet, corporate security, a member of the Zenk, exploration service veteran, Fo1 Inquisitor or priest?

For some reason as I type Fo1 priest I'm flashing back to Sean Connoroy in "The Name if the Rose" but that isn't an unlikely match up more of a Sherlock Holmes story with the smart guy and slower side kick.

I suppose the Elementary My Dear Watson works for solo player and referee. 
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

The problem with this is that a story was successful and the producers want to keep it going so they write in a thin reason "you guys close cases" because God knows no other pairing of 2 FBI agents can get the job done and close a case. And yet the troupe persists.

On the other end of that spectrum we can have Garlus and Dablak: The Early Years.

A younger Garlus Tylappar joins MalCo Enterprises and after unwittingly proclaiming his extreme disdain for dralasites --- only to later discover his CEO is the grotesquely obese dralasite known as the Malthar --- gets paired with the MalCo's up and coming mook: Dablak. The unlikely pair share numerous adventures as Garlus slowly warms up to his newfound dralasite companion over the years and eventually finds preference to dralaistes over all others. As their relationship develops the pair consantly exchange racial slurs at each other...initially out of hatred for each other and later out of devoted humor to pass the time and encourage bar room brawls. The series ends with a happily-ever-after Garlus & Dablak both earning the title of "enforcer" and acquiring a fine Pacific class freighter together while signing on a few more dralasite crew members (although we know exactly what that ultimately leads to afterwards). The ten year holo-series production ryn wins numerous entertainment awards and is constantly syndicated in both Inner & Outer Reach alike and is regularly aired via Triad, Kdikit, and Clarion as well. 
I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide...nor do I have any qualms stating why. Tongue out
