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

^^^ But we got to see so little of Captain Robau.

Too bad there's not a place on this board that has a list of facts about Captain Robau. Oh well.

Ed Harris - He's played some pretty interesting leaders in some of his films. I still remember his performance as Brigadier General Francis X. Hummel, USMC, in the Rock as being very good.

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

First post here - hi!

RE the OP, I'd have William Sadler as a NuPike type character with Jamie Foxx as his headstrong right-hand-man. Because they're both cool.

Nah, he can do a Robert Duncan McNeill or an Armin Shimerman - he doesn't have to play the same character. Chances are any new series will be set in the 23rd Century I'd have thought, and I'm fairly sure Sloan isn't immortal; he is dead after all.

Actually, Timothy Olyphant would make an excellent Captain, or at least a First Officer

I don't think they should go with another white male captain (if this happens anytime soon).

Two suggestions off the top of my head:

Daniel Dae Kim

Lena Headey


Both are good actors with some genre cred, whom I could imagine as strong authority figures.
Good choices.

Trying not to rehash what's been said, I also wouldn't mind:

Colm Feore

Courtney B. Vance

Peter Mensah

Thomas Jane

All my picks for female captains (Torres, Forbes, Basset) are already mentioned.

Would have loved to see Lance Henriksen or Peter Weller, but they're definitely too old.

Also, not wishing to derail the thread Temis, but in another thread I read you said that there won't be another Trek series because of CBS, I've been out of the loop for a while, what exactly is the deal?

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

I doubt he'd do it but I would personally like Hugh Laurie as he's one of my fave actors. Also I like the idea of William Petersen as a Picard style captain.

Nothing official, it's just that what I know about CBS - conservative, sticks to what it knows works (cop shows, sitcoms), with an audience that's wrong for Star Trek and unlikely to care about sci fi at all - makes it hard to believe that as long as CBS is running things, Star Trek has much hope to appear on TV in the foreseeable future.

CBS also owns CW and Showtime. It's just possible a Star Trek series might be crafted for one of those two outlets, which would result in very different types of shows - either for females 18-30 (I'm sure nobody wants that ) or for the premium cable crowd, which would expect more sex and violence than Star Trek may be used to delivering. But as long as they don't go overboard, it could work. If I had to choose, I'd opt for Showtime. Stargate used to be pretty good when it was being made for Showtime, once upon a time.

Ironically, FX might end up airing a Star Trek parody series. So a parody can work on TV but the thing it's parodying can't? Something jes' not right about that.

Star Trek on The CW...Tom Welling is your captain.
