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

It depends on the premise of the show and the nature and character of the Captain though, some actors/actresses would be better suited to a particular role.

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

Stargate got damn good in its later Showtime years. That was a science fiction series I'd trade the entire lifetimes of other science fiction shows to see just one or two more seasons of, and it lasted ten years. But that's because it found a second life on Sci-Fi and pulled strong ratings there until Richard Dean Anderson departed from the cast. Had he stuck around, the series might have gone on until a twelfth or thirteen year. Just incredible for a scripted genre show.

Speaking of Showtime, I'll echo Temis' thoughts again and say that would be the best place for Trek in the foreseeable future. It's either that or CW, and while I have a hunch CW would be interested, I have an equal or greater hunch I wouldn't be.

Vurok types the truth regarding what the show is going for having an impact on the proper choice for captaincy. I would bring to the table the following suggestions:

For a fun, exciting, in-your-face, episodic kind of series in the spirit of the new film:
Joe Flanigan;
Mark Sheppard;
Nathan Fillion;
Adam Baldwin;
Tom Hanks;
Robin Williams;

For a darker, more serialized take on the franchise, a la DS9:
Torri Higginson;
James Marsters;
Gillian Anderson;
David Boreaneaz;
Christopher Judge;
Michelle Forbes;
Tom Hanks;
Robin Williams;

For a particularly philosophical journey rife with metaphor, a la TOS and TNG:
Michael Shanks;
Claudia Black;
Ian McKellan;
Leonardo DiCaprio;
Tom Hanks;
Robin Williams

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

He's a little young or I would have listed him as well. I would like to see him on the show regardless. Very talented man.

He's actually 32...not too young considering that Kirk was 34 years old as of "The Deadly Years".

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

Hm, good point. Not to mention, by the time another show got off the ground, he'd be at least 37!

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

OH OH!!!! *Raises Hand*

I KNOW!!!!!

Wil Wheaton as Captain Wesley Crusher


^ The original Wesley Crusher was abducted by the Dominion before the war broke out, was one of the original replaced with a Changling and the Traveler eventually discovered the Wesley that went with him wasn't real, which explained why his attitude changed so suddenly, so he went back to save the real Wesley in a Dominion POW compound where he was forced to battle Jem'Hadar, so he comes back to Starfleet with a different, more seasoned attitude, where he finished his training as a cadet early due to his experience with the Dominion giving him an advantage and quickly moves up the ranks to captain his own ship.

He's harder, takes no guff and no longer has the patience to kiss brass-ass.... he does the job that needs to be done, but every so often won't be shy in using his brain powers to his ships' benefit.

Top that everybody

he he

But hey.... with a little work, the concept could work.... just give Wes an eye patch.

Sure in the future they could give him an eye like LaForge, but he could just say it gives him character.

Or give him the artificial eye with a scar so they don't drum him out of Starfleet due to not having depth perception and he can say the scar was for character/memories of his combat against the Jem'n'tha'Holograms.

Another name to toss into the ring:

Charlotte Rampling (just saw Swimming Pool. She struck me as captain material right off).
