With that in mind, I'd love to see an actor like Dennis Haysbert play the next captain.
Ooooh, that would be awesome. Not only do I love his voice, but I love that deadpan demeanor he uses to deliver some really funny lines. Admittedly I only know him from the All-State commercials, but he definitely got my attention.
(FYI to those of you reading Sigils and Unions
, I changed my casting for Glinn Va'Kust--I finally had to admit that it was Haysbert I was modeling the man after! If you're reading that story, look at Chapter 6 of The Thirteenth Order
...that's pure Haysbert.)
But one thing I would love to see would be an alien captain. I wonder, what alien race would Haysbert be good as, if we were to go that route?
(Or who else would you want to see, if we were to have an alien captain?)
