no offence guys but the white human male stereotype is getting old. at least make the captain a woman or an alien. you know what would be perfect? politically correct ST series FTW! a black alien lesbian.
I LIKE THIS IDEA!

Okay! An entirly female crew! Whom would we cast, and as what alien species?

Camryn Manheim, as a tough, but motherly, Klingon Captain

Betty White, as the ship's unlovable (species?), though eccentric CMO

Evangeline Lilly, as the highly troubled Andorian 1st officer

....

Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

I'd definitely like to see Yvonne Strahovski in command.

Maybe in a Starfleet Intelligence spy-type series. There would be room for Adam Baldwin and Zachary Levi as well, of course. Okay, now I'm just imagining some sort of crazy Chuck/Star Trek mashup thing. *shrugs* Might be fun though.

I AM SERIOUS!!! I LIKE THIS IDEA!

Why not, a black alien lesbian??? Just because I am a pure blooded human, of mostly north European origin, and as plain/boring strait as can be, why should I not like a show like that? It is not rIDICulous. It sounds great!

Each and every episode could begin with a steamy slow mo shower love scene between the captain and the girlfriend (different one every week) when suddenly there's a emergency call from the bridge ...

No. I would watch it! ... But then - I watch Mexican game shows.

But, the different girlfriend every week has already been done!
A different lover, after every commercial break (with absolutely NO explanation)
has not.
This is the true, logical progression. Do you not agree?


Aside from this, I would like to see a truly alien captain. Maybe, one of the Horta's children. In place of the captains chair, a large PADD would be installed in the middle of the bridge. All commands could be burned onto it: "NO KILL I", "YES KILL THEM", "YES WARP 7", "NO EARL GRAY", "YES COFFEE YEOMAN", ... The part would be "actor proof", saving the production a lot of money.

Instead of a Captain who looks differently, In all honesty I'd like to see a Captain who acted and thought differently. Manifested a truly unique cultural background.

This is actually unreasonable, while a second billing character could have this (Spock, Data, Kira, 7of9), the Captain has to be graspable by the viewers.

Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

I want one like all the previous captains: a performer who's "kind of" known in certain niches but not extremely famous or over-exposed. Actually, at the time they each began their Trek shows, Scott Bakula was the most famous to the general public.

Trek works best when you have good, solid journeyman actors who form an ensemble rather than a "name" actor with a supporting cast.

^I vote yes. Especially if it's Donatra or another Romulan.

There would be room for Adam Baldwin and Zachary Levi as well,
Adam Baldwin = Cardassian

Zach Levi = freakishly tall Vorta

The story writes itself.
