Re: Could we have an alien Captain?

Under a few circumstances, it could work, imo. The main concern being that it's the lead of the show

1, If the alien was only minimally alien looking, like a DS9 Trill

2. If the show were a spinoff, starring an earlier character becoming a captain, like for example Worf. We're familiar enough with him that he could take on a lead role, & his makeup would not be as much a difficulty to the audience

3. Perhaps if it were a long standing alien race that the audience is accustomed to, like a Vulcan. I'm thinking of Saavik, who when her hair is down, only really looks minimally alien, as I mentioned before
