Ming Xiong – Figured him slight but sharp, like Andy Lau.
oh, no, not Andy Lau, I can't see him playing an idealistic young man who joined Starfleet to seek out new life and new civilizations.

btw, was it ever said which way is Ming Xiong's name written? Same goes with Captain Zhao Sheng of the Endeavour, what's his family name? Because Zhao is a very very common Chinese surname, but Sheng is fairly common too. With Ming Xiong, either can be a surname, but neither is a common surname. I gathered from the books that Xiong is the surname, but then I think Zhao Sheng was called Captain Zhao in the books? or was I imagining things because of my preconception?
