Heya folks.

Here's another one I did recently just for kicks: Mackenzie Calhoun



See if anyone can tell where he came from. No, it's not one single person.
I see some Jeremy Piven in there.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ Believe it or not, this is the mug of one William T. Bashir. The face is a blend of Riker from Farpoint and Bashir from Inquisition, with Picard's uniform from First Contact. Crazy, huh?

Now that I look at it though, it does look a lot like Pierce Brosnan!

I think you should apologize in PM to each member of TREK BBS. That would be a good punishment.

I will say this: I used to think poorly of Ferrell, but Stranger Than Fiction convinced me he can be a good character actor.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

HERE's a crazy one... what do the Caeliar look like? I'd love to see an interpretation - hell, I'd love to DO a painting of one to see what they'd look like in reality, but I can't wrap my brain around the description. Kinda with the author would do a sketch in this case, as was done with Torvig. That would be neat-o.

Yeah, I'd love to see that too. I had a pretty clear mental picture while reading the books, but that's never as good as a real image to have as reference.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

i pictured them as looking like Doctor Manhatten, but with solid black eyes, long spindly fingers and tubes from their heads to their shoulders and with no blue wangs on show.

it kinda slowly evolved into just seeing them as Doctor Manhatten... until Mack reminded us about the alien features, but i kept forgetting them.

Kirks Brother from the new Operation Anihilate comic could be played by Jared Leto.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I honestly always pictured the Caeliar as being mostly featureless, vaguely insectoid-ish/vaguely humanoid-ish creatures that would look very smooth, very plastic. I honestly can't remember if that image is consistent with how the novels described them, though.

Actually it looks kinda like they drew Chris Pine with long hair and a moustache, echoing how Sam's corpse in the original episode was "played" by Shatner with gray-frosted temples and a moustache.
