^ Maybe James could be the young Picard. Wouldn't be the first time he's prequelized Patrick Stewart ...
I was about to ask when he played picard before, then I remembered the new x-men movie lol (facepalm)
In my own little fantasy world, I'd like to see a series set after the dominion wa,r based around someone who was promoted to captain sooner than he/she normally would have been due to personnel shortages. I think if done right, it would provide a good balance of nuBSG grittiness/realism, and classic trek optimism. John Simm and Michelle Rodriguez would make the most compelling leads in my opinion.
