Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Upon further reflection, I would definitely cast Michelle Dockery - but, as Scotty. That's how I see her. By the way, another interesting recast graphic! I would LOVE to see Parker Posey in Gender-Flip Star Trek, but I would recast her, too ... as Amanda Grayson! You know, the more I see this concept being mulled over, I'm becoming ever-more convinced that Big Jake did Stumble Upon(TM) a very real solution for the next Trek. One with the potential to become the most successful series of the franchise!

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

I think you should make it Riley instead of Kyle and that way Kylie can sing I'll take you home again, Kathleen.

It still works because Riley and Kylie rhyme

YellowSubmarine: I don't know if that's genius or madness. But I like it. Especially Patrick Stewart as the male Troi and the Most Disturbing Crushers Ever.

Also, I don't think Lieutenant B'Arfa would appreciate all the puking jokes...

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Bizarrely I forgot we had to rename them as well!

Jamie Kirk sounds quite nicely hot

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

I prefer "Leona." But that's just me.

I also think it would be cute if Bones hyphenated her last name with her former husband's name, like: Leona McCoy-Henson. It speaks well and implies deep hurt and inability to let go of her failed marriage, which can only add to the ... to the ... the "texture" of this character. What's more, her daughter Joanna should be a highschool student, living with her father, who reports on her father's many flings. After reading such reports, we see Bones in her quarters, eating a tub of Neapolitan ice cream and watching the teley ... with a handy box of Kleenix, close at hand. In walks Jamie Kirk who, upon realization of the situation, sits by Bones and gives her a big hug and tells her what a beautiful and worthy woman she is ... as they begin joking about Mr. Henson's shortcomings. All that girly kind of shit that encourages slash and would never be able to fly in TOS, as we know it ... Oh, yes, "Leona" will work out fine. Just fine ...

Re: Casting a Gender-Switched Enterprise

Leona is a nicer name but the casualness of Leonie kind of suits McCoy. BUT she could be Leona and get called KITTY.
