Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I have compiled a FULL list of all the names in the order they appeared in the thread. It takes up 12 pages in table form at 12 point Times New Roman.

Rosalind. Do you want to post it at the start of a new thread?

^Hmm, I was hoping for something that ordered the characters by series, with casting suggestions in order of popularity, say (though maybe with the authors' own recommendations on top, or at least highlighted).

The authors' choices are asterisked in some cases where it is clear, and not where they're just suggested. If I email it to you, Christopher, you can just rearrange it. I've done the hard work.

I could shorten the list a little by only leaving the authors' choices. But then people would suggest the same people again and again.

Okay, I guess I could do that.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Oh, this is going to take longer than I thought. Your list includes all the suggestions, even the ones that are blatantly inappropriate and rejected by the authors (wrong ethnicity, wildly wrong age or type, etc.). I'll have to go through the thread and weed those out.

I listed everything to be on the safe side. But yes, there are quite a few that can be deleted...I won't name the poster responsible for a fair few of them. It would be needlessly embarrassing and humiliating.

Have fun

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

A while back I started working on photoshoping some of the popular actors into uniforms appropriate for their characters. Would you want me to post any of them in the new thread? At this point I can only due some real baisic stuff, but I'll gladly keep working on it if you guys want me to. Here are the three I did.
