Just out of curiosity, do you guys have any ideas for Min Zife, Kol Azernal, and/or Kinchawn? If you haven't already guessed I'm reading A Time to Kill.
Because Zife was supposed to be a man that even the most intelligent in the Federation believed was competent and honorable (though he was not the former, and perhaps not the latter), I always thought of him as Dwight Eisenhower.
Karl Rove (even in person) simply is
Koll Azernal. It's hard to imagine anyone else as the shady Zackdorn.
