ooh... Selar and K'Ehleyr were played by the same woman? Wow!
More than that. We had Season Two head writer, Tracy Tormé, at a New Zealand convention after his TNG stint. He had postulated a several-episode arc for Worf to follow "The Schizoid Man", with numerous references to Worf turning up at sickbay with unusual cuts and bruises, and obviously having an off-screen relationship with an Enterprise crewmember, finally revealing a few episodes later that it was with the Vulcan, Dr Selar.

The producers said no to that idea, but loved the concept of exploiting the height and probable chemistry between Suzie Plakson and Michael Dorn, so when K'Ehleyr the half-Klingon was created, they invited Suzie Plakson back to play her.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

K'Ehleyr was a fantastic character, TNG could have done with more episodes with her in!

I don't want to think too much about a Worf/Selar relationship though... that's just too bizarre

^ Yeah, who would even think of putting a Vulcan and a Klingon in a sexual relationship? <...whistling innocently...>

Dave, Dave, Dave.

How many times have we told you not to kick the door open and beg for it like that?

No worse than the idea of a Worf/Troi relationship. (Seriously... Rick must have scored some really good shit the week he approved that...)

I'm sorry, but that was the worst relationship EVER in any Trek series. Every time I see one of the epsiodes with them together I cringe.
Just out of curiosity, how does Peter Daivid handle the realtionship in Imzadi 2?

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

I think PAD handled the relationship very nicely and brought closure to it. But that's just me. I'm one of those few people who enjoyed Imzadi II more than Imzadi.

I very much agree with the first part. I am not sure if I am indeed in a majority but nevertheless, I am not a fan of Imzadi II. PAD wrote Worf the way he was in late DS9, very accurately but also, to me, at his most annoying. More than once I was forced to ask myself, what IS Deanna seeing in this guy!?

Fortunately Worf is much more bearable in later books. In many cases I even liked his parts in them.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

I've been reading Titan: Taking Wing, and I haven't yet decided who I would cast as the characters who haven't already been cast apart from Ree. In my mind I cast Andy Serkis as Ree, and I pictured him performing it in a similar way to Gollum. That is wearing the bluesuit with the motion sensors, then adding in the CGI character in later. In addition the Gollum voice would be quite useful in conveying the sibbylance indicative of Ree's voice.

Except that, as I seem to keep having to point out, Ree is not humanoid in shape. He's built more like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park.

I think Andy Serkis is up for the challenge.

Andy Serkis is a pretty good pick, my only problem is the Gollum voice, I've been imagining Ree with a deeper more gravely voice, more like his normal voice, which is actually pretty deep.
