Not a starship captain...

No, he would make a great Captain. Of course, he could be both.

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

I'd want a truly alien captain--cgi, costume, or whatever--voiced by a deep baritone actor. Something hideously strange like the Alien, something wonderfully fantastic-looking, or even a series alien we've seen before. No more humans; they're getting stale.

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

willem defoe! Or just use kirk from the latest movie, although that could be lame. Realistically you'd want a mostly unknown for such a heavily typecasting part, no?

It would be too hard to relate to a truly alien captain, or a main character for that matter. They are better as villains or as something like the Xindi-Aquatics, depending on what they look like. Besides, Trek is about humans and not aliens. I personally would like a human captain.

Michelle Forbes would make for a great captain, although I doubt she would take the role, as she was supposed to be on both DS9 and VOY.

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

Meet your new Captain:



NCIS's Abby - Pauley Perrette.

And, for the sake of maximizing the angst: she is secretly an alien from an "unallied world" (Could she possibly be... GASP! - a highly dangerous Romulan/Green Orion Animal-Woman hybrid?! ). She appears to have surreptitiously defected for some very credible reasons: however, only one member of the command, the ship's CMO knows her secret. (played by Seinfeld's Jason Alexander) All this, while her 1st officer (played by Joshua Jackson, of Fringe), who was passed over for command by her promotion, plots her ruin. - And although they will never admit it, they are both dangerously attracted to her eventually resulting in a conflicted triangle that puts the 2009 movie Kirk/Uhura/Spock thing to miserable shame. (great for epic, ongoing, plot complications!)

Make it direct to DVD or cable, and give it a totally gratuitous TV-MA rating--and it might well become my favorite Trek, evah!
I has me weaknesses.

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

You know something? Besides Picard from France, all other Captains have been born and raised in the US.

It'd be nice to have another Captain from another country. Not that there's anything wrong with Kirk, Sisko, Janeway and Archer all being from the US, but it'd be just nice to have some variety in nationality.

Like have a Canadian Captain:


Or perhaps an Australian Captain:

.... oh wait... maybe not Steve.

Or perhaps British:

Agreed.

Actually, I do wish that Steve was still around. Can you imagine what those away missions would be like?
He would probably run up to that Gorn, tell him what a beauty he was, ...and then kiss his nose.


The poor Gorn would be like, "WA...???!!!"

Captain Steve, and his half Gorn child.

Hugh Laurie, looking like, "This scowl is such a PIG, that she could blow at any second:
however, I am so blitzed that I could not care less."

And Gillian Anderson, all, "I am so not amused... not even slightly."



Brilliant, Python Trek! All of them.
