Plus, with folks lasting longer in the 24th century, 27 is the new 37.

Uhm, I think that would be the other way around... like 100 is the new 65 (Elias Vaughn).

They keep telling me that by the time I turn 40, 40 will be the new 20. Since I was overweight and out of shape when I was twenty, I don't see the difference.

Hendrix ain't a bad choice for B'Oraq. I tend to waffle on casting for B'Oraq, to be honest -- sometimes Allison Janney is my choice, but that's not a solid choice. So I'm okay with Hendrix.
KRAD, I was just going to ask you who you pictured as B'Oraq. So I looked up both actresses you mentioned because I forgot who they were. Leslie Hendrix is perfect, considering she played an M.E. on the original Law & Order. However.....

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ *chuckle* Indeed.

Most of the time when I create a character, I don't have an actor in mind. For threads like this I'll try to come up with someone. For example, I don't picture Lucy Lawless when I write Wol, but she'd still be the perfect person for the role. I got nothin' for G'joth or for Bart Faulwell (to give two other Trek examples), but I know exactly what they look like.

B'Oraq's in that category, too....

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

So how close are the cover images of the SCE characters, like Faulwell for example, to what you had in mind when you created them? Same question for the modles on the DS9 R covers.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Oh, the images on the covers are the characters, no question. The only exception would be the early images of Tev on Buying Time and a few other covers. The later images of Tev -- from Grand Designs forward -- are accurate.

Actually, I think Jennifer Morrison from House MD could be a good Soleta, she's got the eyebrows and expressions already, all she needs is the colouring and the ears.

Amusingly, a better fit for Morrison would be Selar, what with her being an emotionally fucked-up doctor and all.... Of course, Selar's kinda already taken.....

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Reading back the thread,there are some great options for the many "unseen" characters of treklit.
For Miranda Kadohata; I was kinda picturing Thandie Newton(Brit accent comes as standard extra)
For Leybenzon,my idea was David Morse,(can he do big & scary)
My thought for Bart Faulwell wasDerek Jacobi.
And seeing as this is fantasy casting.....for Vanguards saphic couple T'Prynn & Anna......Raquel Welch(in her prime) and Elle Mc Pherson.
YIKES! I'll be in my quarters
