Interesting choice. I'm liking Leslie Nielson for Gold.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'm nnot sure if this has been said before, but I think that Christopher Judge (from SG-1) would make a good Taran'Atar

It has been said before, yes. By KRAD, if I recall.

I'd go for Tony Todd m'self.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ Both of those are pretty good ideas.

Although, has Taran'atar ever said "Indeed"?

Yeah, I've been leaning toward Judge for Taran'atar. But Todd works, too....

The vocal style Gold has developed over 70+ eBooks and two short stories doesn't really match the cadence of how Alda talks, but it might be fun to see.
Well, it's not like David Gold sounds all that much like Sherman T. Potter, either.

Though it would be fun to have him call Tev on being full of "horse hockey."
So, does Gold keep a still running in his quarters for after-duty?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

If you chop off the facial hair, I can see a young Chuck Norris ("Good Guys Wear Black" era) as Calhoun.

Cue music: "When you're in Starfleet, look behind you, cos that's where Calhoun's gonna be"

I can also see Chuck Norris as Calhoun and Christopher Judge as Tranatter and what about the Rock as Si-quan.

Tranatter. I quite like that. Reminds me of when Quark tried nick-naming him "Trannie" and it didn't quite take.

^^I think Quark nicknamed him "Tarannie," not "Trannie." I doubt he would've gone so far as to imply that the Jem'Hadar was a cross-dresser.

A cross-dresser is not a transsexual.

Ah, but even if he were, how would we know? Jem'Hadar have no females.

That, in turn, reminds me of a Graham Norton sketch. He pulled out a gay magazine, found a listing for a "naked transvestite party" in the back pages. "Okay, I have a question," he said. "How do you know you're all cross-dressers, if you're all naked?"

foravalon said:

No, I know. But "trannie" could just as easily have been an abbreviation for "transvestite" as opposed to "transssexual." Plus, there probably is some overlap somewhere along that very fluid line. The average punter out there who isn't "in the life" probably has a hard time distinguishing between cross-dresser, transsexual, drag queen, gender-queer, and whatever other terms people come up with.

Hmmm. Jem'Hadar drag queen. Do you think they do USO shows when they're out on campaign? Like Gorgeous Georgina, only Gorgeous Goran'Agar?

Chuck Norris?

no. Calhoun doesn't roundhouse-kick people to death and he's far more subtle and conniving than a light-speed roundhouse-kick.
