    /\Yeah,the Voyager relaunch didn't impress me for several reasons but I guess that's my problem.

    "Shameless" is a British comic/drama tv series about a family of, well,drugged-up,pissed-up welfare louts in Manchester(?).
    It has been remade in the states and stars William H. Macy.

    ^ At this stage, the UK Shameless is only marginally more believable than DS9...

    Ah. Okay. Well not everything is for everyone. I just wasn't sure if you had meant the books or the casting thread. As for the show thanks thanks for the explanation. I'll see if netflix has either (I'm a huge WHM fan).

    Well, the US version isn't on DVD yet, so you won't find that.

    Thanks for the info. You've saved me great brain sweat trying to hunt it up. Although I will check Netflix in case they have a coming soon page for it.

    While reading Almost Tomorrow, the first story in Vanguard: Declassified, I kept picturing Indira Varma as Rana Desai. What's odd is that I didn't have that actress in mind while reading the previous Vanguard novels, she just popped in to my head while reading this story.

    I hadn't considered her for Desai before, but I like it more and more as I consider it. Good call.

    I'm reading The Ruins of Noble Men, from Vanguard: Declassified, right now, and it's mainly focused on Desai & Fisher. I'm sticking with Indira Varma for Desai, so I've been picturing her a lot lately. For Fisher I've always pictured him as Bill Cobbs, who played Emory Erickson, inventor of the transporter, in an episode of Enterprise. This particular story also features a character named Ying Mei-Hua, who I've been picturing as Ming-Na.

    Fisher is so clearly Morgan Freeman, though.

    Sonek Pran got so much more tolerable when I started imagining him as Christopher Lloyd.

    I haven't seen her in anything, but based on looks... I think I could maybe see her working.

    Christopher Loyd is too busy being a Klingon.

    And it would be weird to have a Trek actor cast in more than one Trek role...

    :p

    In this case yes as Loyd will always be known as a Klingon.
