Reading back the thread,there are some great options for the many "unseen" characters of treklit.
For Miranda Kadohata; I was kinda picturing Thandie Newton(Brit accent comes as standard extra)
For Leybenzon,my idea was David Morse,(can he do big & scary)
My thought for Bart Faulwell wasDerek Jacobi.
And seeing as this is fantasy casting.....for Vanguards saphic couple T'Prynn & Anna......Raquel Welch(in her prime) and Elle Mc Pherson.
YIKES! I'll be in my quarters
