Yeah, I can't picture EJO as Picard at all. Apparently, Roddenberry also envisioned either William Campbell or someone like him as Picard, if I remember correctly. It was Bob Justman who "found" Patrick Stewart and pushed Roddenberry to cast him.
Yup.

Also: Morgan Freeman as Tuvok's father. You *know* you want it.
Agreed. That would kick serious ass.
I'd rather he'd played Tuvok, actually.
Definitely would have fit better with how the character was conceived. You rarely, if ever, got the centenarian-plus vibe from Tuvok. What a waste.
