Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

The more I think about it, the idea of a Star Trek captain being played by someone who is relatively known for another role was really a Berman-era thing (Brooks was largely known for Spenser For Hire and A Man Named Hawk; Mulgrew was still remembered for her time on Ryan's Hope; and of course Bakula for Quantum Leap). A new producer may go the Roddenberry and Abrams route and cast someone who has a number of screen credits to his or her name, but isn't that familiar a face in Hollywood like Shatner, Stewart, and Pine were.
