Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature
Viola Davis is a pretty good pick, but I still prefer Angela Basset for Asarem.
As for the accent thing, since Trek never really gave the different alien races specific accents I tend to just imagine them with your standard American accent, unless it states otherwise in the text.
EDIT: I never thought of Christian Bale for Calhoun, but I like that one.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
