Sci-Fi/Trek Swap Game

This idea just struck me as something a little fun, just for the interesting mash-ups people might come up with.

Firstly, you need to pick a Trek series.

Then replace as many of the characters as you want with others from any other sci-fi franchise (at least one of the original characters must be left though), but you can only use one character from each show/movie (so no replacing the entire TOS cast with that of Firefly, no matter how awesome that would be). Also you can't use characters from other Trek series/movies, the replacements must be from outside the known Trekverse.

For example:
TOS. Replacing Spock with Yoda, McCoy with the Tenth Doctor, Uhura with Delenn, and Chekov with River Tam.

Re: Sci-Fi/Trek Swap Game

This sounds like fun.

Voyager, I choose you!

Janeway gets replaced by Ellen Ripley from the Alien movies, because a Captain Ripley would have simply been awesome.

Chekotay gets replaced by Aeryn Sun from Farscape. Because that's kind of how Chekotay should have been.

Tuvok gets replaced by Talia Winters from Babylon 5, because cool and telepathic. Talia's sleeper personality could be a stand in for Tuvok's Pon Farr.

Harry Kim gets swapped for Kai from Lexx, still being an eternal ensign.

B'Elanna get's swapped for Kaylee Frye from Firefly. That's a no-brainer, Kaylee would have been more fun than yet another angsty (half-)Klingon with Klingon issues.\.

Kes gets swapped for Trance Gemini from Andromeda, since, again, I always felt that's how Kes should have been written.

The EMH gets swapped for the 4th Doctor from Doctor Who, just a nice guy who offers everybody jelly babies!

Tom gets replaced by Han Solo from Star Wars, the original space rogue pilot.

Neelix gets swapped for Barf from Space Balls, because Barf was actually funny.

That leaves Seven as the original character I suppose, however in this version Trance stays on board, even when Seven arrives.

Kind of replaced a lot of male characters with female ones skewing the balance from 3-6 to 5-4.

Re: Sci-Fi/Trek Swap Game

I pick TNG.

The only replacement would be Captain Picard with R2-D2

Most episodes would be likes this:

Riker: Captain D2, a Klingon ship has dropped out of warp off our starboard bow. What are your orders?

R2-D2: Bleep beep boop beep. Whirrr beep.

Riker: (Pretending to understand) You heard the captain. Lock phasers on the Klingon ship.
Or like this:

Ambassador T'Lek: Captain, what is your opinion on the movement to accept Bajor into the Federation?

R2-D2: Beep boop beep.

Ambassador T'Lek: Well said, Captain.
He would still give all of the grandiose speeches which Picard gave, but nobody really understands what he's saying so they substitute their own meaning in their minds.

Upon assimilation by the Borg, he would be seen wearing a Darth Vader helmet with no other apparent behavioral changes. He hasn't even really turned into a Borg drone, but everyone assumes that his beeps and boops refer to assimilation and the collective.

Shinzon's appearance remains completely unchanged, as is the scene where he explains that his appearance is different due to his rough treatment in the mines. This conjures images of the Romulans beating the robot out of him until he turns into a bald human.

Yes! But, only if Hicks comes with ALL of his dialog from "Aliens"

"Captain, what do you think?"

Captain Hicks, "We're in some pretty sh*t now!"

You can imagine and come up with others!




My idea is to replace Data with C-3P0

"Oh, Dear, oh dear...scanning for life forms is such a bother"


And, replace McCoy with Dr. Smith from "Lost in Space"

"Beam Down to that lifeless rock? Never, never I say!"
"Oh, the pain...the pain!"

(As the gods are my witness, I did not see Melakon's "Dr. Smith" entry!)

Oh, and one more: replace Chakotay with...no one.
