Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Any ideas for Karin Noosar (the POV Cadet in Ch. 19 of Articles of the Federation)?

Neither BSG happened. They were stories portrayed by actors on soundstages, reading from scripts. What a waste of time to argue over which imaginary story is more imaginary.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

From the new Seekers novel, Second Nature, by David Mack -- here are my choices for a few crew members:

Hesh: Michael Emerson

Taryl: Morena Baccarin

Dastin: Chris Pratt

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Hm. I like Emerson for Hesh. Morena Baccarin for Taryl is actually who we listed in the Seekers series bible. However, Chris Pratt doesn't really fit my image of Dastin Faro; I prefer my imaginary casting of Ryan Reynolds.

I once based the main character in an original SF story on myself, only to be told by a beta reader that that character was bland and boring. Since then, I haven't dared try it.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've already told KRAD that I have a huge crush on Jurva, the bekk from "The Unhappy Ones", so I have a choice to play her: Katherine Moennig.

(I would never recommend that she play a "regular" Klingon but she would do quite well as a QuchHa' like Jurva)

Our homework for tonight: think about which Trek Lit character, major or minor, we would portray (if you want to be safe, be the voice actor for a non-humanoid ).

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'll admit I have thought I could be a pretty voice for Torvig if he were to ever appear in a Trek production. I've wanted to be an actor since I was little, and being in Trek or something like it has always been my absolute dream. Torvig is exactly the kind of role I would love to play.
