Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've been reading the latest DS9 novel, Fearful Symmetry by Olivia Woods, and I have been enjoying it immensely. And I have a few casting suggestions for some of the minor characters:

I have long been a fan of both John Hurt and Charlotte Rampling, two of my favorite British actors. I can't think of anyone else other than Hurt for Dukat's warden, Dal Rokai. (I mean, can you imagine that terrific scream for when Ileana blasts him in the kneecap??) And for some weird reason I keep thinking of Rampling for the role of the Kressari woman Shing-kur. (Probably it's because she's got such distinctive eyes, and in this story we learn that a Kressari's eyes change color according to mood.)
"You're gonna pay for all the Jedi you killed here today, Darhe'el!"
"Oh, I don't think I can pay for all of them, Skywalker. There were so many. And you can only execute me once!"
