Much of the reason that TNG worked so well, I think, was due to Patrick Stewart. He brought a gravitas and legitimacy to Picard that really helped sell the cheesy universe of televised Trek.

With that in mind, I'd love to see an actor like Dennis Haysbert play the next captain.
I came into this thread to mention Dennis Haysbert
Dennis Haysbert would be awesome as a starship captain!

Oooh. I'd love to see a captain played by Christopher Eccleston. He'd just look badass in a Captain Uniform, although, I'd hate to see him play a French man, like another british badass we know.
Of course, you do realise no sooner than he's appeared on screen, he'll have probably already decided to leave don't you?

Not necessarily a bad thing... the captain losing his command in a mutiny could be a decent arc for the first season. His first officer would have to popular enough to carry the series once he's gone though...

Mickey Rourke! With Johnny Depp as the first officer, if you had three million dollars to blow on per episode that is!

I love the suggestions of Andre Braugher, Angela Bassett, Dennis Haysbert and Lawrence Fishburne.

Other suggestions:

Lena Olin
Lindsay Duncan
Eamonn Walker

Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn, Lord of the Rings)

Bruce Greenwood (No, not necessarily as Pike--but let's be honest, he'd be AWESOME)

Nicole deBoer (Hey--Captain Ezri Dax of the Aventine. Just sayin....)

Nicole deBoer works for me.

But how about Willem Dafoe as Cap with Michael Paré as first officer.

Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

Harry Lennix from Dollhouse. Cool under pressure and ruthless when neccessary.
Ron Glass from Barney Miller and Firefly. His character was simultaneously the most conscientious, enlightened member of the cast and (implicitly) the most cold-blooded and vicious. A perfect mix fro a starfleet captain. Idris Elba is just amazing in whatever he does.
One advantage in casting an older black thespian as the Captain of the ship /or at least a bridge officer is the opportiunity to do a retcon and make him the young shuttle pilot during the Kelvin sequence.

Other potentials would be Alan Tudyk or Jason Segal for a more comical, unlikely sci-fi hero. Hell you could make him complete subversion of who we typically view as the Captain of a ship. Make him not a physical-type (like Kirk) or intellectual type (like Picard), but instead someone who's just really good at running a starship and is more akin to an owner/manager of a small business or restaurant like Richard Jenkins, Louis C.K., or John C. Reilly.
