With that in mind, I'd love to see an actor like Dennis Haysbert play the next captain.
Ooooh, that would be awesome. Not only do I love his voice, but I love that deadpan demeanor he uses to deliver some really funny lines. Admittedly I only know him from the All-State commercials, but he definitely got my attention.

(FYI to those of you reading Sigils and Unions, I changed my casting for Glinn Va'Kust--I finally had to admit that it was Haysbert I was modeling the man after! If you're reading that story, look at Chapter 6 of The Thirteenth Order...that's pure Haysbert.)

But one thing I would love to see would be an alien captain. I wonder, what alien race would Haysbert be good as, if we were to go that route?

(Or who else would you want to see, if we were to have an alien captain?)

Vaughn Armstrong.

Why? Hey, he's Vaughn Armstrong. Need I say more?

seriously, this guy is a Trek veteran from way back. One of the best ever. He deserves to have his own series.

My choice is Michael Weatherly for Captain (NCIS). He can project authority but also be funny/entertaining.

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

Well for me, it depends on what kind of captain you want.

Do you want something like Kirk-style, Picard-style or something in between?

If you wanted something towards the Picard-style of capt'n'ing, then I'd go with Laurence Fishburne as mentioned before,



or perhaps even William Petersen,



not because both of them were on CSI Las Vegas, but because I like both of their acting styles and would play a decent starfleet captain that has a good head on their shoulders.

If you wanted to lean towards the Kirk-style, I'd go with either Colin Farrell



or Bruce Campbell.



I know I know, a lot of people don't care much for Colin F. these days, but I was a fan of his acting before he became main stream when he was in Tigerland and he can be a really good actor when he wants to be, lol.

I doubt Bruce Campbell would agree to do any Trek series. Didn't he turn down a role on DS9? ("Jack", of the Jack Pack from 'Statistical Probabilities')

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

^ I think it's even less likely that movie stars of the calibre of Colin Farrell, Lawrence Fishburne, Viggo Mortensen or some of the other names bandied about here would do it. I'm assuming that people are choosing wish-figures, rather than actors who Trek would genuinely have a chance of landing.

I don't know why he turned it down, but why would he be generally against appearing in Trek?

I can see why you might think A-list stars or people who are known for art movies could be, but someone known as a genre actor?

You don't think there's a *reason* he didn't want to do DS9? It wasn't that he was unavailable or couldn't find the time, he flat out said he didn't WANT to do it. There's always a reason for that. And he has done TV before, just not this.

If we're going to pull a new captain out of NCIS, let's grab the boss. Mark Harmon projects leadership and confidence.



Please no twenty-something captains!

Michael Weatherly is close to 40, if not already there. Like me, he looks young for his age.

Mark Harmon would be more suited as a Commodore or an Admiral.
