The Trek equivalents are Whoopi Goldberg and maybe Christian Slater.
Slater was in ST VI because his mother was the casting director.

Christian Slater should have appeared in Trek as the first officer on a ship captained by Jack Nicholson.

Re: John Larroquette: ST III

And let's not forget how Alexander Enberg got his Trek roles...sure helps being the son of Jeri Taylor.

Are those cut scenes in the novelization?
It's been awhile since I read it, but I clearly remember the scene after Kirk destroys the Enterprise where Kruge is utterly dejected because he thinks he pushed Kirk into destroying himself. I remember there being some more stuff with Saavik, David, and Esteban, but there was a lot of new Saavik/David material added by McIntyre anyway, so I'm not sure what came from where.

Really? I'm disappointed. I thought Kruge was smarter.

His landing party reported the ship being deserted, including the bridge. Kruge at first thought the crew was hiding, but at this point does he still think the crew was hiding while the ship counted down to self-destruct? He must realize after the ship explodes that it was empty other than his landing party. Whether that means they somehow snuck 400 people off the ship or it means the ship was manned by a small party that simply beamed off unnoticed while your landing party was beaming over, the ship has obviously been evacuated.

Re: John Larroquette: ST III

What on earth ever possessed them to cast Christopher Lloyd in the lead Klingon part??? He ruined the movie. You need a much stronger man with a great presence to play a Klingon.

Re: John Larroquette: ST III

^ Edward James Olmos also auditioned to play Kruge.

IIRC, either Nimoy or Harve Bennett wanted EJO for the role.

It was Nimoy who wanted Olmos, but Bennett overrode him with Lloyd (this is mentioned in the Okuda text-commmentary on the DVD).

And Lloyd is extremely menacing in the role, with screen-presence to burn, IMO.

Re: John Larroquette: ST III

It's a shame that most people associate Christopher Lloyd with comedy roles like "Doc" Brown from BTTF, because he really did play a good Klingon.

Although I can't help but wondering how EJO's version would have been.

I thought Christopher Lloyd did a great job as a nuance Klingon.

Never knew about EJO...

So is THAT why he insisted on no aliens in nuBSG? Resentful of being turned down AS an in Trek???

Re: John Larroquette: ST III

Playing a Klingon must be such a thankless task. Larroquette was virtually unrecognisable as Maltz, but Lloyd did a terrific job as Kruge (helpfully Kruge had a strong characterization).
