Not a bad choice, except Keru has a beard and isn't shaven-headed.

True. I did add the beard and balding buzzcut as per the pics of Andy Mangels' model for the character, but the resemblance was still bloody frightening.

Then there's the image of Keru sitting in a swivel chair being led across the deck by a leashed targ and saying "mush" that I can't get outta my head....

How about this for Sonek Pran (A Singular Destiny):

- Brent Spiner. Specifically, his Brackish Okun look from ID4.

^ He's not unshaven, he has a well-trimmed mustache.

As for the rest, you'll see in February.

Okay, so let's try the obvious: Cherry Jones as President Nanietta Bacco.

And Powers Booth as Admiral Dennis Decker from the Marvel comics.

You know I was thinking the exact same thing myself while I was watching 24:Redemption, and not just because she's playing a female president, I thought she seemed quite a bit like Bacco.

Yup. I think it's the hairstyle, and the slightly Janewayesque quality to her voice and mannerisms.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Having watched 24: Redemption, I have to agree with the above re Cherry Jones. Though her having played the POTUS in one show nearly counts against her playing the POTUFP in Trek - too similar for my liking. I still like Fionnuala Flanagan for Bacco, even if she has already been in TNG, DS9 and ENT (another thing about Trek casting which pisses me off!)

The lead singer of Garbage? When and where did she start acting?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

In season two of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, at least in the US. I believe she's done a bit of acting in the UK before.
