Re: Casting Captain Gold from the SCE novels....

^ Well, understand, the template for Gold is pretty much Col. Sherman Potter, only Jewish.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've been re-reading DS9: Mission Gamma and just thought that Teri Polo ( Helen Santos from the West Wing) would make a great Counsellor Phillipa Matthias.

Come to think about it Jimmy Smits wouldn't be a bad choice for her bajoran husband.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ I like that choice. I've been struggling to find someone for her, and now I have. I think I actually have the entire DS9-R cast now. I can't remember all of my choices but here's the ones I do remember:
Prynn: Maggie Q
Shar: I think I'd heard some people say B.D. Wong
Treir: Suzie Plakson
Phillipa: Teri Polo
I can't remember who I had cast for Vaughn though.

I still like Jennifer Connelly for Soleta. I'm reposting this Photoshop I did, simply because I can.

She looks more like a fairy than a Vulcan in that picture. But she's still damn hot.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

When I think elf, I think Tolkien elf and she doesn't look like a Tolkien elf in my book. She looks too...I don't know..."cutesy innocent," maybe? I don't know.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Umm...Wow. I actually do think she would be a pretty cool, Soleta. But, I remember someone say Lucy Liu and I thinks she would be pretty good as her too.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

The only reason I said BD Wong was because I couldn't think of anyone else for the part, and I remember hearing his name somewhere.

B.D. Wong would be good for Harry Kim's older brother if Harry Kim had had one.

I normally don't cast anyone in my mind when I'm reading books, but B.D. Wong would be perfect as Giancarlo Wu.
