^Who cares? My point was simply that the artist seemed to be paying homage to the original episode by designing the Sam character in such a way that he resembled Kirk with a moustache.

^I wasn't making a casting suggestion at all, okay? I was commenting on the art on the comic book page.

Here's a thinker for you - anyone got any ideas for SecondGen White Blue? (and yes, haha, trash can, tricorder, refridgerator, etc.).
Although he looks nothing like the description in the books I always imagine SecondGen as Robot 1-X from Futurama:
http://futurama.wikia.com/wiki/Robot_1-X
Heh. Actually, I always thought of White-Blue as looking a bit like the Tachikomas from the anime series Ghost in the Shell: http://www.robotsnob.com/pictures/tachikoma.jpg

Ooh, a Tachikoma on the Titan crew? I'm sold! Does he have the cute little-girl voice?

If it doesn't, then why bother?

I'd also love to see one of Lawrence Miles' conceptual entities show up on Titan, but you really can't "cast" that. (Ensign Shift, anyone?)

He has legs, though - I describe him in Synthesis as being "spider-like"...

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^Right. I'm going back through Synthesis now trying to grab details.

Spider-like, with a haphazard framework built from recycled parts. Head that can rotate, multiple eye lenses. Antennae I believe? And multicolored lights set inside a frame that's the size of a cargo drum, and "as much art as technology" in its design.

Would you wanna do a sketch? I think you're the only one qualified to get it right.
