We came this close to picturing her as Seven of Nine....
Interesting. I always pictured Linda Blair as Soleta, for some reason. Don't ask me why!

(Then again, considering my user name, maybe it's not such a surprise...)

Re: Casting

One of the best choices I've heard is Jennifer Connelly. But I haven't been able to come up with any other choices myself. As for Sci Cwan I've imaged either Michael Clarke Duncan or Ving Rhames

Re: Casting

At first I thought John Cameron Mitchell (creator and star of Hedwig And The Angry Inch) would be a good choice to play Burgoyne 172, but now I'm thinking that he might be a better choice to play Thirishar ch'Thane in the DS9 Relaunch. As far as Burgoyne 172 is concerned, now I'm thinking Alexis Arquette!

Isn't Drake a contemporary of Kirk's? That would make him almost a quarter of a century too young. I'd opt for James Caan.

Well, I'm saying John Travolta now opposite William Shatner around the time of TUC. That's the beauty of fantasy casting; you can use people at any age, or even cast people who are dead now.
For some reason, I imagined Gary Oldman as Androvar Drake.

Re: Casting

That's not bad either. But I've gotten so used to him as Lt. Gordon ("Batman Begins") that I'm not sure I'll be able to picture him as a bad guy anymore.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

This is my first post so for New Frontier

Calhoun - Joe Flanigan or Nathan Fillion (Firefly's Mal Reynolds is a lot like Calhoun.)

Redeemer Overlored - Ian McDiarmid (The Overlord reminds me of Emperor Palpatine.)

Thul - Chirstoper Lee (He is perfect for the part.)

Si Cwan - Peater Woodward

I'm more for Richard Dean Anderson as Gold for some for some reason

I just can't see Richard Dean Anderson being that Jewish. Just doesn't fit. Leslie Neilson I think is a better fit for Gold. He's got the look and he can play both comic and straight as needed.

As David Gold?

Judd Hirsch, definitely. :thumbsup:

Judd Hirsch is an interesting choice for David Gold. I can see that working.

How does one 'be that Jewish'? You are the religion the script tells you to be. I don't think RDA would work as Gold, but because RDA's portrayals are too lackadaisical and smarmy.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

While I've been reading Serpents Among the Ruins I've been trying to cast it, so far the only original character I've been able to cast so far is The X-Files' John Neville as Vokar.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Harriman and Demora are taken care of, unless you want to be kind of perverse and do your own mental casting of them

As for everyone else, I can offer you this: people who've read these threads before may remember that my visual template for the younger Elias Vaughn is an actor who has been on Law & Order and OZ named Philip Casnof



Your mileage may vary.

That's a great, great novel. Savor it.

Wow, he'd be perfect, at least appearance wise, as Vaugh in SAtR.
