Craig Charles!

>.> Yeah, maybe that's just me....

Garrett Wang. Great actor and would help facilitate Asian actors being cast as protagonists in the mainstream. (As well as those whose heritage hails from the middle east. Aside from Omid Djalili, though, I can't think of anyone off the top of my head; however, he's... not really captain material. xD)

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

I'm changing my vote to Rainn Wilson. I could see him pulling off a Jellico-type hardass captain quite easily. Particularly if the ship gets between a bear and her cubs.

^ Surely Rainn Wilson and John Kracynzki (sp?) as feuding first officers; Wilson's character would be forever finding his phaser in a bowl of jelly or walking round with 'Kick me!' written on his back in Klingon.

Steve Carell for the captain.

^^ Best pick so far, Rush..IMO..

How about Robert Knepper. I was really impressed with this guy on HEROES. I think he could really shine as the star of a STAR TREK show..

Rob
Robert Knepper WAS on Star Trek TNG.

Look up the cast of "Haven" and prepare to shudder.

I know he played an Admiral in TNG, but I'd actually love to see Terry O'Quinn from LOST as a captain - he was just so damn good

I think hes great. But I think they will think hes too old. He turns 58 this year, and hes not even a "young" 58. He was only 41 in TNG and is actually slightly younger than Jonathan Frakes, but looked and seemed much older, which being bald often does. I certainly would like to see him in a Trek show in some capacity or another though.

Oh yeah, he's far too old, for sure. I'm just imagining Captain Locke and how awesome that would be...

Michelle Forbes. Provided she plays a human or perhaps a Vulcan. She was pretty badass as Admiral Cain on BSG, and since she's currently 45 she'd be the perfect age to play a captain. Kirk at 30-something was a bit young, even though he looked a bit older than his real age. Realistically one'd expect a career of at least 15 years in Starfleet before getting a shot at the captain's rank, probably more than that.

Yes I remember doing research on US Naval Captains and XO's which included ages in order to get an idea of the basic range for characters. And if I recall , Captains of Cruisers ranged in age from 44-51 with the average being 46/47. They averaged over 20 years of service, not inc their time in the Academy, for those that did attend it.

I think only Shatner was noticeably below that. Mulgrew was slightly below (40 I think). Lets just overlook Chris Pine. I dont want to get into that again. But I do think they should stay somewhere close to this range.

You do know that she had a recurring role as the Bajoran Ensign Ro in TNG and turned down the chance to reprise her as a regular in DS9, right? (The character was re-written as Major Kira)

I know you said no captains from the 09 movie, but I thought Faran Tahir was exceptional, and I believe he would be great in a series.
