    I do think Kurt would be a pretty bad-ass Captain. :)

    Never considered it, but...you're right!
    You're right, but I've tried to block out the memory of that film. The horror! The horror!
    All I can say is keep watching, and you may see what I see.

    I very much wanted to see Christopher Eccleston play one.

    From the TOS era, Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, David Heddison, Ed Bishop, William Marshall and Christopher George come to mind.

    Some really excellent new classic picks thee, Gov, thank you! Bishop, Hedison and George all should have occurred to me but hadn't.

    Christopher George would have been a fine choice, a damned good looking man. In fact it wouldn't be that hard to have seen him cast as James Kirk.

    Lloyd Bridges was mentioned already, but since he was the original Commander Cain from the original BSG, I think he would have made a good TOS captain. Kinda surprised he was never on TOS as a guest star, actually. I think he was offered the role of Kirk.

    And in the spirit of Star Trek being truly internationalist:

    Toshiro Mifune (prob would have made better Commodore or Admiral)
    Ken Watanabe
    John Lone
    Djimon Honsou
    Jurgen Prochnow
    Jeroen Krabbe (but prob better Section 31 :))
    Carice Van Houten from GoT (has to be the new Crusher)
    Antje Traue from MoS (would be a good Dax)
    Tcheky Karyo (one of my favourite French actors; always seems like a nice guy and prob be a good Captain)
    Jean Reno (badass grizzled captain :))
    young Catherine Deneuve would have been a good TOS-Seven of Nine. :adore:

    Garbo would have made a perfect Seven of Nine. This would have been Tom Paris and Seven to a tee.

    :).

    Perfection. Like a good-bad holodeck episode.

    I'm sure someone somewhere has probably played the 'cast Trek with classic 30s/40s Hollywood actors' game.
