Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'm sorry for changing the topic here but I've had idea but I'm not sure if it would really work or not. I just started watching both Homicide Life on the Street and Rescue Me and now I keep thinking that Callie Thorn (Det. Laura Ballard on HLS, Sheila on Rescue Me, and Pam Mahone on Prison Break) could be a good T'Prynn, at least appearance wise. I don't know why she came to mind, but for some reason she has.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Vladimir Kulich as Admiral Leonard James Akaar. That's something I'd very much like to see. The man definitely looks the part, being 6'5" and looking very much like a Capellan. Add to that, he's a great actor. He was fantastic as Buliwyf in 'The 13th Warrior', as well as The Beast in 'Angel'. Here're a couple of pics of the guy so you all can see what I mean. The man, without a doubt, IS Admiral Leonard James Akaar.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'd love to see him skewering Jem'Hadar soldiers with a kligat.

Quoted so people can see the pictures.

I hadn't thought of him as Akaar (I always imagined a white version of Michael Clarke Duncan), but I definitely can see Vladimir Kulich as Akaar.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Vladimir Kulich is pretty much dead on perfect for LJ Akaar, in my opinion.

Shifting gears to the Sherman & Schwartz books, how about Jeffrey Donovan for Ruanek?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

And here's a quick photomanipulation job of how Donovan as Ruanek might look:



and just for the hell of it, Kulich as LJ Akaar:

Akaar's supposed to have longer hair, i think, but other than that, fantastic work! Especially the Romulan bloke, though I have no idea who he is.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Nice. Would you mind doing me a favor, could you put Amanda Tapping in a read or gold starfleet uniform and turn Vincent Kartheiser into Shar? I've always wanted to get myself some kind of a picture of somebody as those two characers. If you don't want too or don't have time I more than understand. I've wanted to do it myself, but I don't have any photo-manip software. The only reason I ask is because those are absoultely awsome!

If you mean the character, it's Ruanek, who appears in Vulcan's Forge, Vulcan's Heart, and the Vulcan's Soul trilogy. If you mean the actor, it's Jeffrey Donovan, currently the lead in the USA series Burn Notice.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

JD, if you have photomanip requests, I suggest stopping by the Star Trek Photomanipulation Archive forums at www.stpma.net. They're a friendly lot, and there's a lot of folks over there who love doing this kind of thing and would be happy to whip something up.

I meant both actually. Although now that you mention it, I do remember him being in a Dominion War story and I have seen the trailers for that show. Thought he was hot then too.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I always envision Vaughn Armstrong as Ruanek.

With:

Claudia Christian as Charvanek
David Warner as Narviat
