Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

Huh, fun!

I believe I've posted some of this stuff before, in other threads.

I've done a fair amount of photoshoppery of the modern novel-verse, for ships and giggles.

Elias Vaughn

Taran'atar

Prynn Tenmei

Dr. Ree (Christopher and I have chatted about the accuracy of this one in the past )

Mackenzie Calhoun

Caeliar (and their permanently frowning visages...)

I figured since her rank is captain, she'd wear Gold. If I recall, Sonya Gomez was a bit of trendsetter for wearing an Engineering Gold uniform when she was promoted to captain.

Then again, that was the 24th century, and her becoming captain actually involved a starship command. Perhaps it's different when you achieve the rank of captain but not technically in command of a ship?
Wearing department color at higher ranks is rare but seemingly no problem. In "The First Artifact", the commodore of the Constellation frowns upon XO Spock's blue shirt but we've seen another officer in TOS who's a blue commodore, actually. In the 24th century, Admiral Bennett wears operations gold, and we have several engineers ranked captain other than Gomez - G. La Forge and Scotty. Bruce Maddox wore blue as commander and was promoted without assuming command of a ship. Presumably, he'd wear blue, too.

The question is, is it admiral's/captain's perogative to choose?

Captain as a rank is a separate thing from captain as a position. You can be the captain of a ship with any rank (as when Lt. Cmdr. Dax was called "Captain" on Defiant missions in the Dominion War), and you can hold the rank of captain without being in command of a ship (as Spock and Scotty did in the movies). So a captain in the command division would wear the command division color just like any other officer would, while a captain in the science division would wear the science division color, etc. In ST III through VI, Scotty wore the engineering color, which was gold at the time, along with a captain's rank pin (except in the trial in ST IV, where they mistakenly gave him a commander's pin). Although, confusingly, when he was in his engineer's vest in ST IV-VI, he wore a command-white turtleneck -- and in ST IV the vest had an engineering-gold shoulder strap!

We've also seen this with higher-ranked flag officers: Commodores Stone and Stocker wore red tunics while Commodores Mendez, Barstow, Decker, and Wesley wore gold.

Wow, that's some awesome photoshoping. I've done a bit myself, but it's nowhere near as impressive as that.
What actors are those you used?

^I recognize Jesse L. Martin as Bowers, but who did you use for Choudhury and Shar? The former looks very familiar.

I've forgotten what Archaeus is, if I ever knew.

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

I believe Choudhury was Janina Gavankar. Shar was just somebody I found in a stock photo - whenever possible, I'm much more pleased with a non-celebrity than a celebrity in these cases, the celebrity face tends to knock me out of the story.

The Archaeus was Noonien Soong/Data 2.0's schwanky new chrome-plated starship in Cold Equations.

I know also remember an Admiral from DS9, who wore a gold uniform.
It happened a lot more then I remembered appereantly. Thanks for all the examples.

Oh, of course. I thought that might be it, but I should've been more sure, since I was the one who first suggested Gavankar for the role. And here's the original picture: http://trueblood.wikia.com/wiki/File...case_(ep1).jpg
