Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Grace Park is an OK choice for Prynn, but I really think Sandrine Holt would be a better fit, because of her own mixed ancestry.

I don't disagree. Sandrine Holt was my longtime preference from Prynn. I resisted Grace Park for a long time. Now I find myself torn between the two.

Which, now that I think about it, ain't a bad way to go.

FWIW, I too see Sandrine Holt as Prynn and Robert Forster as Vaugn.

I'm not sure. Honestly, it's never going to happen anyhow, so since we're being all pie-in-the-sky-ish, I'm happy to stick with Graf.
KRAD, speaking of the dearly departed. Which one of your created characters from the IKS Gorkon did you visualize as the late Andre the Giant?

Haven't played this game in a while, but I'll ante up:

Sean Connery as Vaughn
Milla Jovovich as Shar
Phil Morris as Taran'atar
Grace Park as Prynn
Roger R. Cross as Bowers
Angela Bassett as Asarem Wadeen
Daniel Dae Kim as Cenn Desca
Marg Helgenberger as Phillipa Mathias
Kate Walsh as Treir
Liam Neeson as Yevir Linjarin
Glenn Glose as Girani Semna
Charlize Theron as Aylam Edeen
Hugo Weaving as Alon Ghemor
Eric Stoltz as Ethan Locken
Michelle Yeoh as Ruriko Tenmei
Wow, I love all these picks, except Sean Conery, and that's only because of the accent. Appearance wise he's good, but I just can't get past the accent.

Mila Jovovich as Shar is an interesting and unexpected pick, I never thought of using a woman for Shar.

Now that I'm watching 24 Day 5, I must say that Roger R. Cross is perfect for Bowers, so I am changing my pick for Bowers from J. August Richards. :thumbsup:

What accent is Vaughn supposed to have?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I always hear him with very feint midwestern accent. Though, since he grew up on Berengaria (IV?) there's no telling what sort of accent he might have.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Kate Walsh as Treir
I looked this one up, because I didn't recognize the name, and I don't watch Grey's Anatomy. She's not bad, but Suzie Plakson really is the #1 choice for Treir.


Hugo Weaving as Alon Ghemor
Bleah. Couldn't we get someone who can, y'know, act?


Michelle Yeoh as Ruriko Tenmei
I never object to casting Michelle Yeoh.....

KRAD, speaking of the dearly departed. Which one of your created characters from the IKS Gorkon did you visualize as the late Andre the Giant?
Bekk Goran, the "big man" of the fifteenth.

Based on his picture in that one book (a Mission Gamma, I think), I can definitely see that. Of course, my mind will still probably play Sean Connery's voice in my head, just because I think he's really cool. But I think James Brolin or someone similar would work well, too.
( What am I talking about? I haven't even read any Vaughn books yet! )

He just looks like, in another time, he'd have been some crotchety old farmer out in the middle of nowhere, meanest sumbitch in town.

If you really think there's a point to arguing over this nonsense, Keith, then by all means, carry on.

Think of it as stress relief... leaving KRAD more time to concentrate on writing answers for everything we could ever want to know about Trek... and, you know, writing the odd novel in his down-time
