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

A lot of good choices. I really liked the idea of John Cho starring in an Excelsior series. I've always thought Excelsior would've been a great idea of a TV show, and now there's a new Sulu, there's a new chance to do that, and they could keep it in the alternate universe and tie it to the new movies.

Some other ideas, didn't see these choices, but I might've missed them:

Jimmy Smits
Carla Gugino (sp)
Viola Davis
Benjamin Bratt
Tom Selleck
Joe Morton
Charles S. Dutton
Phil Morris
Sam O'Neill

Sam Worthington? He's got that hard edge to him, yet still a bit of human 'caring' about him, that could work for a starship captain.

Absolute perfect world, I'd love Liam Neeson to be a new captain. That said, I acknowledge there's less than a 0% chance that will ever happen.

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

well lets see..

it begs the question.. what type of series the new trek would be? exploring (Tos, Tng, Ent) Station, arc driven (ds9) overall problem arc (voyager) or something new?

does it have a begining middle end? (B5)

the type of show determines who would be cast.. becasue each show has a different type of captain, and as which, would have a type of person to play them, regardless of male/female race etc.

on that love to see
Nicole Deboer (Ezri) and the aventine just because the chief engineer has my last name!
Ken wantanabe (though i belive he has health problems.. not sure) for an asian captain.
Samuel L. Jackson? ( wouldn't that be a hoot!)

a good series in my mind and cover some missing years..

Alan Ruck and Jacquelin Kim as Harriman, and Demora Sulu( enterprise B series she'd be first officer, then take over after the tomed incedent, as in the novels, and would be a good story device of the captian retiring! and there the right age still..)

I don't know why they went for Scott Bakula over Michael Biehn for ENT. Biehn wouldn't have cost any more (probably less, in fact) and he would have brought at least as much clout and cred with his CV as Scott did - Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss etc. Plus he's a better actor and would have been a much more commanding presence than Bakula's Archer ever made for.

I didn't read all the pages in this thread, but when I saw the title, two of your choices, Benjamin Bratt and Jimmy Smits, came to my mind. I doubt either would be that interested, but maybe Phil Morris might. Liked him as Martian Manhunter in Smallville. -- RR

^In all seriousness...a Trek series exploring the legal system could actually turn out pretty good!

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

^ Agreed. Some of the most memorable Trek scenes have involved courtrooms. From Measure of a Man to The Undiscovered Country, to TOS' Court Martial and others.

And maybe Shatner can play an attorney called Denny Crane ...

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

I doubt I'd be interested in seeing any series based on the aftermath of the most recent movie. But, If we're simply discussing the idea of an original Trek series not based on anything in particular....

hmmm.... how about Anthony Michael Hall. He did a great job with Dead Zone. Has a fairly commanding presence on screen. About the right age, I'd think.

I liked the idea of Dennis Haysbert. Loved him in the Unit. Though I could see him more as a Kirk type than a Picard.

If we're looking for somebody a bit more cerebral? Kelsey Grammer. He's well known. He's done Trek before. And, given his recent run of flops in the comedy arena he could use a dramatic role to perhaps allow people to see him as something other than Frasier.

Although he'd be an unusual choice, Adrian Pasdar is an excellent actor and he needs a good show to make up for the crap Heroes put him through.
