Oh no no no....I have it! Trys should be Olivia Munn from G4's Attack Of The Show.
Well, that was a pleasant Google Image Search, but otherwise I'm not seeing it.

Ah well, too bad for me again. For me, her personality kinda sells it...equal parts hottie and technogeek, at least on the show she kinda comes across as such. And she's part Chinese!

Not a very large part, I guess, since I couldn't tell from those photos.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

As a number of people have commented on Vale's hair changing colour with alarming frequency (maybe she should talk to Troi about that) like Lisa Ryder in Andromeda, has anyone suggested that Ryder be "cast" as Vale?

I think the "number of people" is pretty much just me. Vale actually changes her hair color, unlike Beka, who had this cool ability but left it blond all the time.

Or some videos from youtube or G4's site. She's half-chinese, but you're right, it's not very appearent.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I think I have a new candidate for T'Ryssa Chen: Smith Cho, who plays Zoe on the new Knight Rider. I'm not sure she's quite there personality-wise, but she's got kind of the right look (or would if she cut her hair to shoulder-length).

Cool, I'll have to add her to my cast list later.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've just been watching the rerun of this week's Knight Rider to get a better sense of Smith Cho, and I was right -- she is a pretty good choice for T'Ryssa. She's definitely got the look, and she's playing a somewhat similar character (well, similar to who Trys was at the start of the book). Her delivery's a little ditzier than I imagine Trys, though, and she's a few inches shorter than Trys. Stunning smile, though.

So has the show been as bad as everybody says it is?

I think that's a topic for the general SF board.

Here's a little Smith Cho promo clip:

She cute enough, and I can see her in the hair and makeup, but...
