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

Hey, if Law & Order can use Jerry Orbach as a defense-attorney-of-the-week only to later bring him back as a cast member then Star Trek can certainly re-use Terry O'Quinn even though he played Admiral Pressman. Especially since, as the above poster pointed out, it's not a new thing for Star Trek. How many times did Vaughn Armstrong come back? And how about Brock Peters, who was human both times (Joseph Sisko and Admiral Cartwright)? And let's not forget all the actors who've played multiple alien roles in Star Trek, some of whom even played different characters of the same race (Marc Alaimo played two different Cardassian characters, for instance) or multiple roles in the same tv show (like Jeffrey Combs, who played both Weyoun and Brunt in the same episode).
