    ^ Believe it or not, this is the mug of one William T. Bashir. The face is a blend of Riker from Farpoint and Bashir from Inquisition, with Picard's uniform from First Contact. Crazy, huh?

    Now that I look at it though, it does look a lot like Pierce Brosnan!

    Will Ferrell as Taranatar, Ben Stiller as Shar.

    Can't wait to see what punishment J Wolf comes up with for me now.

    I think you should apologize in PM to each member of TREK BBS. That would be a good punishment.

    I will say this: I used to think poorly of Ferrell, but Stranger Than Fiction convinced me he can be a good character actor.

    HERE's a crazy one... what do the Caeliar look like? I'd love to see an interpretation - hell, I'd love to DO a painting of one to see what they'd look like in reality, but I can't wrap my brain around the description. Kinda with the author would do a sketch in this case, as was done with Torvig. That would be neat-o.

    Yeah, I'd love to see that too. I had a pretty clear mental picture while reading the books, but that's never as good as a real image to have as reference.

    i pictured them as looking like Doctor Manhatten, but with solid black eyes, long spindly fingers and tubes from their heads to their shoulders and with no blue wangs on show.

    it kinda slowly evolved into just seeing them as Doctor Manhatten... until Mack reminded us about the alien features, but i kept forgetting them.

    Kirks Brother from the new Operation Anihilate comic could be played by Jared Leto.

    I honestly always pictured the Caeliar as being mostly featureless, vaguely insectoid-ish/vaguely humanoid-ish creatures that would look very smooth, very plastic. I honestly can't remember if that image is consistent with how the novels described them, though.

    Actually it looks kinda like they drew Chris Pine with long hair and a moustache, echoing how Sam's corpse in the original episode was "played" by Shatner with gray-frosted temples and a moustache.

    The hair color is still different.

    Its because Kirk is in the shade.

    ^Who cares? My point was simply that the artist seemed to be paying homage to the original episode by designing the Sam character in such a way that he resembled Kirk with a moustache.

    Yeah but Leto would still be better.
