Is there anywhere i can get some phonetic pronunciations of the various Rihannsu characters?
Considering the preponderance of Rihannsu-based fan sites, I'm sure there's something out there. I couldn't tell you where, but Google probably could.

Alternatively, you could ask Diane Duane herself via her blog.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I just had a thought for Naraht's voice: Pablo Francisco, the comedian, doing his 'Movie Preview' voice.



I would have suggested Don LaFontaine himself but unfortunately he passed away several years ago

Okay, I think I've settled on CCH Pounder for Asarem Wadeen.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Okay, I suppose this one is rather obvious, but it only just occurred to me. Liam Hemsworth as Peter Kirk in Sarek.

Unless he might be too young, as I recall Peter was supposed to be older than the average cadet at the time of that novel...

Well, Sarek is set in 2293, about 26 years after "Operation: Annihilate," so Peter would've been around 38 or so at the time. According to Wikipedia, Liam Hemsworth is only 23.

Christopher, he's Chris Hemworth's brother. That was why it came to mind.

I know Peter's age was explicitly mentioned in Sarek, but it's been too long since I read it and I don't have access to my collection at the moment. I could've sworn the book said he was 28 either at the time or when he joined the Academy, but that would've only made him about 2 in "Operation: Annihilate!" so that doesn't make any sense...

Yes, I guessed that even before I looked him up. If you propose someone named Hemsworth to play a relative of George Kirk, it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out why.

(And I thought I'd never heard of him, but then I saw he was Gale in The Hunger Games, which I have seen.)

It says he was 7 when he lost his parents and is 32 at the time of the book. A bit of a retcon, but I guess O:A never really specified how old Peter was supposed to be. I based my estimate of Peter's age on the actor's age at the time.

...sigh... Sometimes I forget your unrelenting penchant for exactitude.

In any event, he was also in The Expendables 2, in a significant but relatively minor role that was originally intended for first film but was cut.

Okay, so yeah, 28 when he entered the Academy, then. I knew I remembered that age for a reason.

I suppose it could be a simple enough retcon to make the character in Sarek one of Peter's brothers instead, but I think that would rob the story of some of its punch, at least.

Does anyone else like the idea of Daniel Craig as a young Robert April?

Uhm, not me.Seems utterly antithetical to the character, actually.

Unless nu-Trek April turns out to be radically different than previous interpretations of the character.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

While I'm reading Section 31: Abyss for the first time, I can't stop picturing William Fichtner as Dr. Ethan Locken, with Cillian Murphy as an alternative.
