If we're gonna change the gender of ALL the characters, the Enterprise computer must have a male voice.

I can think of John_Rhys-Davies (the Mirror Universe version could be Brian Blessed).
Actually, the MU computer should be female.

LMFAO @ ZaraBen

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Not every STAR TREK character MUST be reverse-sexed. I feel that Sarek & Amanda should remain as they are, for example - with one exception: Amanda is the parent T'Spock has issues with. Amanda has unrealistic expectations of her daughter, that cause problems ... pushing T'Spock towards the relatively placid Sarek and the serenity of The Vulcan Way. There are other ways to switch genders in STAR TREK without ... switching genders.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Hey thread someone posted a pic of a gender swapped comic at some point, Girl Kirk was wearing the green wrap around shirt as the TOS mini dress. Now I can't find that post with the pic, anyone know which one it was?

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Can we call Kirk, Jaime Kirk? It's a lot cuter than Jane..

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

I was thinking about that... but then I'm not sure "cute" is quite what I'm looking for

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Well not just cute, sounds stronger to me. Jaime is a kind of a kick ass girl's name.

I think Jane Kirk flows better than Jaime Kirk. Especially if her middle name is Tiberia.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

I'm really trying to sex up the name Jane.

I got nothing.

I prefer Jamie Kirk to Jane Kirk too. Jane doesn't really suit a female Kirk imo. How about Katee Sackhoff as Kirk. She could do a swaggering sexy Kirk, and I'd buy her as a young cowgirl captain.
There are some great choices in this thread. Gina Torres as Sisko is perfection! I love that too much.
Paul Walker as Rand. Uh, yes please. I suggest Justin Hartley as Chapel. Not only does he look perfect, he can that reserved vulndrability that Chapel did so well. I can't argue with Lee Pace as Chapel though, he could also do that fragile quality well.
Claudia Black as McCoy is a really inspired choice. I could see her getting the personality down perfectly. It's so perfect I'm nearly convinced it happened.
I'm swooning over Ben Barnes and Sean Farris, even if Zarabeth ought to be blonde, I'm not complaining. I'd be curious to see more prominant supporting characters gender swapped.
How about Summer Glau as Spock? I can only imagine the Kirk and Spock girlfight when pon farr hits.
We need some more suggestions for TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT. I'll have to give that some thought.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

... HEY!!! None of my selectees were selected! Rumer Willis was perfect as Spock! Come on, fellas! I must protest. Big Jake, whatever happened to "I heart Rosamund Pike" ... "you heart Rosamund Pike" ... don't you remember, we had that "heart" Rosamund thing going? I demand a recount!!!

But I thought you were a devotee of the Jane Way.

At least Jane and James are an example of assonance (vowel "rhyme").

What about Janice Kirk?
