^I don't think "better" is a meaningful assessment there. Shatner and Pine are playing two rather different versions of James Kirk. Even aside from the differences in character history, they're played by actors with different styles as preferred by different generations. Shatner's Kirk was the classically trained Shakespearean-actor version, while Pine's is more in the modern, less theatrical style of acting. So it's kind of an apples-and-oranges thing.
Alright.

....But I still like Pine's Kirk better.(I prefer apple Pine to orange Shatner; or orange Pine to apple Shatner, if you will).

"Orange Pine?" Sounds like a mixup at the household cleaner factory...

I'm cleaning with my orange Pine, but I'm drinking my apple Shatner on ice...

What's up with short guys being suggested for Worf? If you cast him as Worf, most of the cast would have to be under 165 cm to make him look bigger.

I'd think Ejiofor would be a better choice for Picard than La Forge. Or maybe he'd make an interesting Data.

Yeah as mentioned, Gillian Anderson in Beverley’s role would be great. She’s not as 1-dimensional as Gates and I think the CMO role would be just suited for her. Plus she's ten times better looking than Gates

Not sure about Data, but I think Ejiofor would do a great job as Geordi. Geordi had some key scenes in the series, and after seeing Ejiofor in Tsunami: The Aftermath I think he would be capable of reproducing some great Geordi moments.

I can also see James Woods doing a great version of Captain Jellico.

How about Brian White, then? Based on his appearances on The Shield, I think he'd be tall enough.

I think Ejiofor would be great as Picard, but I was aiming to keep Picard older than the rest of the cast. Ejiofor is of comparable age to most of the other people I chose. I do think Ejiofor could be a good La Forge; I'd particularly like to see Ejiofor as La Forge in an "The Arsenal of Freedom"-esque situation, slowly coming to trust himself and his ability to lead.

Peter Stormare in my version.

More to the point, what would the plot be like??

Well it would probably involve the borg. And maybe Wesley Crusher Prime (played by Wil Wheaton obviously) saving the day

Laila Rouass from Primeval as Deanna. She looks strikingly like a younger Marina Sirtis.

Ha. I am watching her right now on Season 9 of MI-5, and I had the same thought.
