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.
I'm sure that would be true for most of us here. Try your goateed evil self - everyone is cooler in the mirror universe.

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 ).
An excellent suggestion.

Not strictly literature, but he was named there, so I suggest myself for Hiram Roth.

^ Unfortunately, no, and nobody has ever confused us either.

I'm bald and bearded. It's a start.

And as Mr. Ellenstein died in 2010, it's unlikely that anyone will mistake you for him.

I think we all know who I'd play from TrekLit, given a fraction of a chance.

If I lost some weight, and Dr Boudreaux was interpreted as Cajun...

I have the right accent and wouldn't trip up on medical jargon, so I have that going for me.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I haven't really followed this thread for a while, but I had some new cast ideas come to mind.

Zhao Sheng: while I agree Chow Yun-Fat would be a good choice, I actually picture (of all people) Ken Watanabe.

Ming Xiong: Jet Li is a good enough choice, but my personal pick is Will Yun Lee. Partly because he deserves bigger roles, and partly because I'd love to see him in Star Trek!
Rick Yune would be a good alternative.

Any roles you guys could recommend for Bryan Cranston?

I can't think of any literature roles for him but I'd love to see him play Flint or Ronald Tracey.
