Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

It would definitely have to be someone able to grab attention and keep focus on the character. I mean

Female Kirk should be strong, beautiful and sexy. You should want to look at female Kirk and look and look.. and follow her anywhere. She exudes confidence and touch of wildness. I'm voting for Doreen Jacobi, not well known outside of Europe, striking and interesting and not just a pretty boy (girl) to look at.



Striding.. arms..



Follow her ANYWHERE!




She has some sci fi pedigree, she was in an episode of Lexx.
What were we talking about?

That's interesting, definitely. Be a close call between her and Traue, I think.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

For 2takesfrakes: in what video-type contexts would I find KaDee Strickland, incidentally?

Supplementary for the general thread:

Anybody care to up the ante and gender-flip the rest of the crew regulars? Including male version of Uhura, Rand and Chapel?

You mean "Claudia Black's really spectacular. They'd have to make Bones the star of the show." In that case, I agree.

Good idea. Traue is too classical-looking for Spock in my oponion. Vulcans should have some oddness about them. Jennifer Carpenter? "That's fucking logical, captain."

Don't be so stereotypey. On this ship everyone is a lesbian.
Hard looking = must make lesbian is, frankly offensive.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

I totally agree that we're clearly talking about a male Uhura, Chapel and Rand.

And Claudia Black is indeed spectacular, as well as funny!

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

For Uhura I nominate Shemar Moore from Criminal Minds.

Simply because he is so pretty (and ripped).

Maybe he and the female Spock can have an affair.

Just as a fun thought exercise:

Supposing you were tasked with creating a new Trek show and that, during the casting process, the network execs decide to go after a different market and demand -- demand, I say -- that you gender-flip the roles of Kirk, Spock and Bones.

Which actresses do you cast to play the gender-switched characters?

OH and Please lets not waste the beautiful beyond measure Alexander Skarsgard on Rand! Unless we suddenly make him verrrrrry important.

Kyle <> Kylie, it seemed like a natural fit.

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

T'Girl, nicely played. That's a pitch-perfect choice.

And that's some epic stuff all around from Locutus: Kelly McDonald and Michelle Trachtenberg especially are perfect. And you remembered Lt. Kyle! I never remember Lt. Kyle.
