Ughhh, I guess I can't edit my post above....

Some suggestions for the voice of Hwii from 'Dark Mirror' that just popped up in my head:
*Cree Summer
*Nancy Cartwright

And yes, Hwii is a 'he'....a dolphin-like alien, IIRC

Everytime he spoke, I heard a lovable voice...that brings out an innocent nature, and makes one say, 'Awwww...'

The voices of Bart Simpson and Elmyra Duff make you think of "loveable", "Innocent" and "Awwww..."?

Well, you have to think of a floating alien dolphin (in a specially made Starfleet uniform) working in Engineering...not Elmyra or Bart...

Ranul Keru - Khris Scaramanga
I had never heard of him, so I googled, as one does. At first the only pics I could find were contest night at the leather bar, then I looked further...

"Oh... that's who he is." <giggle>

Interesting choice, amusingly appropriate, and oddly enough, he can actually act.

Yea i picked him for two reasons first to me he just seems to fit Ranul's description big well built ect and second reason is well.....he's freakin hot!!!
but he matches the physical description pretty well, dont you think?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Some I came up with while reading; I think some have already picked the same individuals:

TOS

*Mandala Flynn from 'The Entropy Effect'-Kadida or Rashida Jones

*Reese Diksen from 'Star Trek: Recovery'-Ellen Page

*Admiral Nogura-Clyde Kusatsu

TNG

*Vicenzo Farrenga-Isaac de Barkol

The last name definitely sounds African.

*Miranda Kadohata-Stephanie Jacobsen

The girl from BSG:Razor who is of mixed ancestry, and Australian. I believe they have her picture on Memory Beta as an idea for the character anyhow...

*Ensign Rosado-Rita Moreno

DS9

*Elias Vaughn-Burt Reynolds

Give the guy a role he and work with, and he'll do wonders....

*Prynn Tenmei-Sandrine Holt, Moon Bloodgood, Tia Cararre (sp?)

Some have mentioned Grace Park, but Park doesn't look 'mixed.' However, I recall Tia Cararre doesn't actually looked mixed either, and she portrayed a half-black/half-Asian-Japanese on the film 'Rising Sun'....soooo....

Yeah, I'm pretty sure there's at least one scene where she, you know, actually EATS something. That would pretty much rule out Callista.

That's actually a very interesting idea. By now, she'd be about the right age, and she is generally the right type physically.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I was going to add Hugh Cambridge to my list of casted individuals above, but I'm having trouble placing him with an actor.

Maybe someone can help me?

I may be mistaken, but hasn't Kirsten Beyer actually said that Laurie was her inspiration for Cambridge?
