Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

well Claudia's character of Vala on stargate wasn't really much of a hot head or aggressive (except maybe in the seduction department)

I guess, but I still don't see it. You can see it all you want though, that's the fun of this, it's all based solely on personal opinion.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

For whatever reason, I like to "cast" actors from TOS or who might realistically have appeared on TOS in TOS-era stories (excepting Vanguard).

When reading Ill Winds in Shards and Shadows, I imagined someone very similar to Diana Ewing (if perhaps somewhat more athletic than thin) as Sarah April:



(Apparently, Memory Alpha and I chose the same Droxine screencap. )

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

While reading What Judgments Come, I keep picturing Cervantes Quinn as a very drunk Woody Harrelson.

Also, the suggestion of Indira Varma as Rana Desai is brilliant; I can definitely see that.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've just stumbled across this thread and have to say, I like the idea of Sean Connery as Vaughn. Donald Sutherland would also be swell in that role.

To whoever's read "The Return", what do you think of William Fichtner (Colonel Sharp in Armageddon) as Captain John Lewinski?

EDIT: I would also support Robert Patrick as Captain Robert April.

^ What novel are you referring to for Robert Patrick as April? In the Diane Carey novels, he was described as having an English accent, IIRC.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Eh, honestly I did the wrong thing and took a shot in the dark.

I still stand by William Fichtner as Lewinski, just give him the goatee.

And how about Bob Saget as Vaughn?
(Okay, not really. Haha).

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Personally I've always pictured an American actor by the name of Fritz Weaver as Robert April,

He was O'Brien's defense attorney, but I knew of him from stuff before that and he always seemed like a good fit.

And in his onscreen appearance in TAS: "The Counter-Clock Incident" (voiced by James Doohan), he had a sort of semi-English or mid-Atlantic accent.
