^I could see that as well. Either him or Vladimir Kulich (he also seems to be a popular choice).

Some others I forgot to mention last time around:

McKenzie Calhoun: Hugh Jackman

Jon Stephens (aka Lady Q) (see Before Dishonor): Jon Heder (I don't think anyone's come up with a suggestion for this character yet!)

Renan Konya: Brandon Routh

Dennisar: Domenick Lombardozzi

Sonek Pran: Ron Glass

Voice of Second-Gen White-Blue: Nicholas Briggs

Voice of Second-Gen Cyan-Gray: Jessica Strauss (the voice of EVA in the Tiberium Universe settings of the Command and Conquer games, or at least in Tiberian Sun)

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Wrong ethnicity. Bowers is of African descent.
Really? How did I miss that? Oh well, then maybe Denzel Washington.

Hmm, I don't see it. For one thing, Rennan's sandy-blond.

I tried to give her Vulcan eyebrows, but I'm not sure if I got the angle right.

I haven't seen her on the show yet, but Daniela Sea from The L Word could do Burgy, at least based on her looks.

Ranul Keru: Khris Scaramanga (albeit with facial hair, and slightly longer hair on the top of his head)http://westhollywoodtrainer.com/files/khris-main.jpg

No. Rosado is described in Losing the Peace as being close to Picard's age, and her first career, as a university librarian, lasted almost 50 years.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Some thoughts on the not-on-screen Aventine characters:

Sam Bowers: Lance Reddick ("The Wire," "Fringe")
--A bit wirier than some of the other choices, but I've seen him pull off a command role well in more than one performance.

Mikaela Leishman: Jewel Staite ("SG: Atlantis," "Firefly")
--A bit of a cheap-out given her genre pedigree, but I sort of see Mikaela as Kaylee Frye and Jennifer Keller thrown into a blender anyway...

Lonnoc Kedair: Sasha Alexander ("NCIS")
--Her NCIS character had the right bit of snark for Lonnoc, particularly thrown to Michael Weatherly's character, and I think she fits the bill physically.

Gruhn Helkara: David Tennant ("Doctor Who")
--A couple of Gruhn's science-rants in the novels seemed a bit Tenth Doctor-ish, and like Alexander for Kedair, Tennant has the right physical match for the reedy Zakdorn.

I don't know about Reddick playing Bowers, but I could see him as Zett Nilric from Vanguard. I may be wrong, but I believe that one of the novels described him as looking "skeletal" or something similar, and Reddick certainly fits that description.
