Supes looks completely human. Star Trek doesn't really do completely human looking aliens. Last time I checked, they were firmly in the rubber forehead mold. When did they change? I'd love to think that there's some new Star Trek out there that somehow escaped my eagle eye.
2009's Romulans had some small rubber bumps, I guess, but for the most part they were going for the more natural facial-tattoo prison convict look. My guess is the next film's Klingons won't have crabshells glued onto their foreheads either.

Re: Could we have an alien Captain?

I say sure.
MY own stories, not only is the captain not a human, but neither is about 90-95 percent of the crew.

Check it out:



*bridge and uniforms might change, depending on the era I choose to go with.

As you can see:
Vulcan captain, A Dalek first officer, an Andorian navigator, helm is an Orion, the doctor's an older black human, a green haired yeoman, and the red head's an alien I made up. And the rest of the crew's made up of a bunch of other aliens as well. Not exactly a run of the mill crew line up, but I think if the stories are good, and the characters are likeable, it can work just fine.

Re: Could we have an alien Captain?

I would love to see an alien Captain leading the next series (if there ever is one). I would also love to see another woman take the centre seat. As well as think that someone of a different ethnic background would also be great.

So why not combine all three into one? So I give you:
Captain T'Lar Hasan

Already had a couple of thoughts on who I could see in the role. Either:

Laila Rouass


or

Indira Varma

As far as I could tell, JJ's Rommies were the same race as the TNG/DS9 Rommies, except for their personal style (bald w/tattoos rather than Prince Valiant wigged) and that's just to make them credible to the audience. The TNG era wigs and big shoulder pads would have been laughed off the screen. In both cases, the most prominent feature are those big pointy ears. Hard to look human with those elf-ears.

Well, a bunch of tattooed guys would just make me think they were being invaded by some Pantera fans, really.

Shoulder pads are probably for the military and aristocracy.

Why not Worf? I always thought he'd end up being the first Klingon captain in Starfleet.

He is an Ambassador. Becoming captain would be a demotion.

Apparently Worf accepted the demotion because he was still in Starfleet a few years later with his previous rank of lieutenant commander.

Re: Could we have an alien Captain?

Also due to Worf's previous actions (destroying an unmanned civilian transport and then sacrificing a mission for Jadzia) Sisko pretty much told him that he doubted Worf would ever get his own command.

I would love to see an established UFP species getting the centre seat: Andorian, Bolian, Trill, Vulcan.

I think that should be taken for what it actually was--just Sisko's opinion at the time. Otherwise, Worf may have long since redeemed himself. The incident on his service record may ultimately turn out to only prevent him from getting a command anytime soon, IMO.

Worf is Picards first officer in the current TNG/Typhon Pact books.
