Flint in season 5

Among the numerous ideas for season 5, one was an encounter with Flint in one of his earlier aliases.

I'm curious whom they would've gotten to play the role. Supposedly, when casting T'Pau and Surak for "Awakening", they consciously cast actors who at least somewhat resembled the originals. One would hope they'd do the same here.

Personally, my choice would've been Tim Daly, being the son of James Daly, the original. Admittedly, he might've been a tad expensive, being a fairly popular TV actor, and may or may not have been comfortable taking up a role his father played.

Still, we can hope.

Re: Flint in season 5

I found the lack of immortal super beings in ENT refreshing, glad they didn't do this. It seems season 5 ideas were as heavy on connecting the NX-01 to other series story lines as season 4 was. Though I think season 4 was excellent it would have been better to have season 5 go in a completely original direction, continue the Romulan subterfuge etc..

Well, they did have the Organians, that long-living telepath guy who wanted to hook up with Hoshi, and (arguably) the Sphere-Builders.

I don't know, James Daly's Fint didn't look much like Beethoven...

I guess this is a positive side effect of having time travel in every other freaking episode just about.

Re: Flint in season 5

I just love time travel. I get how some people don't care for it but it's always been one of my favorite themes. I think ENT did it with particularly good stories.

Re: Flint in season 5

I would have been more comfortable with a retcon establishing that an already existing character was Flint.

Re: Flint in season 5

Actually my first choice would have been Admiral Forrest. Partly because he's a great guy, partly because Vaughn Armstrong played him and therefore his awesomeness is increased a thousandfold because of that alone, but mostly because ... and this is going to sound kinda cheesy ... Forrest reminded me a lot of my dad and so when I watched that ep where Forrest died, it really hit me hard. So I prefer to look for any excuse possible to have Forrest live again!

Re: Flint in season 5

Forrest was excellent, finally an Admiral that was a sympathetic character! His death was quite upsetting.

I theorize that one of the Vulcans demands for membership in the Federation is the requirement that all admirals be jerks. They were trying to dominate Starfleet with their case of Evil Vulcan Syndrome, but didn't take in account it's apparent cure and the adaptability of humans to rise to new heights of jerkiness!

Witness Admiral Alynna Necheyev.

What was wrong with Admiral Ross?

I don't see Forrest being immortal, though. Still, I'm sure they would've had PLENTY of work for Vaughn, had the show kept going.

Oops, my bad.

My overwhelming memory of that episode is grabby letch Kirk holding Reyna so tightly she had his finger marks on her arm for the whole scene.
