Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'm just starting Kevin Ryan's "Errand of Vengeance" series, which follows Klingon agent 'Jon Anderson' aboard the Enterprise. A lot of the characters in the novels are minor ones from TOS, but as far as I know, Anderson never showed up on screen. How do you guys envision him?

Not familiar with her, but going by pictures, she seems about the right type. And she does have a fair amout of acting experience.


T'Ryssa Chen: Charlene Choi
Again, I had to look her up, but this is a very good suggestion. She's very close to my mental image of Trys, except she's a bit softer and more innocent-looking. And from the video clips, she seems to have the necessary animation and charm. The one catch is, would she be fluent enough in English to have the kind of comic timing and delivery Trys would need? Though if it's just a suggestion for a face readers could imagine while reading, I can endorse this one. In particular, this photo shows her with just about the right hairstyle and a fitting expression. I wouldn't mind seeing a photoshop of that with pointed eyebrows, maybe slightly more Vulcan complexion, and a Starfleet science lieutenant's uniform.


T'Lana: Natalie Portman or Keira Knightley
Interesting thought. I guess they fit the description.



Valerian: Karen Gillen
I think Karen Gillan may be a bit young for the part.

Sarah Shahi on Life (a great show that had to short a life)
EDIT:
I didn't do the ears since hers are covered, and I was having trouble with the eyebrows. Sorry. I can do a Sarah Shahi one earlier, and I already did a Ree pic, Amanda Tapping as Vale, and Bruce Boxleitner as Vaugh. I'm pretty sure I posted the Vale and Vaughn ones, but I'll post them again if anyone wants to see them.

With what women are doing to their eyebrows these days and Trys embracing her human roots, I wouldn't be surprised if they were human looking.

^Nope, they are described as slanted. People are generally able to recognize her as Vulcanoid even with the ears covered.

I could see that.


Sarah Shahi as Lonnoc Kedair
Hmm, she's popular this week.


Gigi Edgley as Aili Lavena
A little young for the part, I think. Keep in mind that Lavena has completed her child-rearing stage of life, which lasts for a couple of decades following maturity. That would make her somewhere around 40.


Tim DeKay as Sam Bowers
Wrong ethnicity. Bowers is of African descent.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I think the guy who plays Shepard in Stargate Atlantis would make a good Calhoun. He looks quite a bit like him on the cover of the New Frontier Captain's Table book.
