When I first watched TNG reruns (no DVDs) I thought Cmder Riker was the same character as Captain Thadiun Okona because they kind of look similar. (As stupid as that sounds )
Well Billy Campbell who played Okana was the first pick to play Riker before being dropped because they considered him to be too soft.
I hadn't heard that before. I knew Campbell had been in the running to play Riker, but I just assumed he had been passed over because Roddenberry, Justman and Berman preferred Frakes. I didn't know the reasoning behind it.
