Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ I can't see the IGN image (all of their sites are blocked at this university, for some reason), but as for the other, publicity photos and portraits are generally very difficult to work with in photomanipulation, because of, differences in the lighting techniques used for portraiture and film, the angles of similar problem, and that the subject is generally looking at the camera and/or otherwise reacting to its presence rather than ignoring it, which makes it difficult to carry off the illusion (looking at the camera can be corrected, somewhat).

I looked at several images of Ms. Chaves-Jacobsen, but only had about twenty minutes, and so chose an easy one. (Galactica and post-First Contact Star Trek go well together lighting-wise as it is.)

No fault of Cicero's, but I'm afraid I find that a very unflattering shot of Chaves-Jacobsen. Surely there are better ones out there? How about this one:

She looks more Kadohatan in the first pic. Oh, and too.

I know it's the wrong ethnicity, but I pictured Indira Varma as Kadohata.

Please tell me you're joking and are aware that Firenze is the Italian name for the city of Florence.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'd always pictured Nan Bacco as resembling Barbara Bush.

And no, I'm really not sure why.
