Thanks to the name (and the way I am pronouncing it) I couldn't help but picture David Zayas who plays Angel Batista on Dexter.

^Subtle? Calhoun?
Calhoun is an easy cast-- actually. I've said for years that it should be Jonathan LaPaglia (who played Lt. Frank Parker in 7 days).

At least, that who I picture in the role.

I don't see how he's "so far off," but even if there are differences from Peter David's description... it's television, workable.

Though I've heard Admiral Nogura was intended to be played by Toshiro Mifune, I've been unable to associate anyone other than Emperor Akihito with the character (if perhaps 10 or 20 years ago as Nogura circa Open Secrets).

I don't see it. Muller's kind of a statuesque woman, isn't she? The 6-foot-tall Marjorie Monaghan has been suggested for her (though she's also been suggested for Domenica Corsi). Leick is a respectable 5'8", but quite skinny; I never found her physically convincing as the ultrapowerful warrior she was shown to be on Xena, though her superb acting compensated for that.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

While reading "Full Circle," Tim Roth, the actor who plays Dr. Lightman on "Lie to Me", comes to mind for Hugh Cambridge.
