^ Obviously, none of you guys actually saw the "Friday's Child" episode of the original Star Trek, which was when Leonard James Akaar first appeared.

But he was a baby in that episode, so how would we know if he had hair a hundred years later?

Is there some kind of joke I'm not getting here?

Actually, given who Zife was apparently supposed to represent, I'm surprised a different picture wasn't used, if you get my drift...

I think, however, seeing the episode would indicate that he is neither black nor orange.

Yeah, but I didn't say I imagined him as black. I imagined him as the white version of Michael Clarke Duncan.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Not as tall or broad-shouldered as Michael Clarke Duncan, but he definitely as the face down perfect.

Seems to me as if someone was confusing Capellans ("Friday's Child") and Excalbians ("The Savage Curtain"). The latter are rocky and orange.

^ Someone who's skilled enough at Photoshop to turn Eisenhower into a freaking Bolian (complete with blue skin and facial ridge) should be able to make anyone look bald.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

i'm going to go through all the posts in this thread just to see if anyone else has suggested it, but wouldn't Richard Dean Anderson make a good Calhoun? He's got that maverick look and he's always bucked authority!
