Okay...I actually don't deserve credit for this next one--it's by my buddy Admiral_Ranor
Anyway...how do you all feel about Denzel Washington (with a moustache, of course) as Ben Zoma, Picard's XO on the Stargazer
You know, I've never read a Stargazer
novel, and the only stories featuring Gilaad Ben Zoma I've ever read were "What Dreams May Come" (from Tales of the Dominion War
) and Part I of The Buried Age
. I don't recall seeing a description of him in either one, but I honestly just assumed that he was an Israeli and probably looked Middle Eastern.
--the book that first introduced Picard's old crew--I think was where he got the idea from.
"I have been wounded but not yet slain. I shall lie here and bleed awhile. Then I shall rise and fight again."
