    ^ I'm going by how he looks on The 4400. He's too young. :)

    What about Alan Alda for Capt. Gold?

    ^ Huh. Interesting.

    The vocal style Gold has developed over 70+ eBooks and two short stories doesn't really match the cadence of how Alda talks, but it might be fun to see. :)

    Well, it's not like David Gold sounds all that much like Sherman T. Potter, either.

    Though it would be fun to have him call Tev on being full of "horse hockey." :rommie:

    AS long as we are talking about M*A*S*H actors playing Gold, I always thought that the picture of Gold on the cover of The Art of the Deal] looked more like BJ/Mike Farrell than Potter/Morgan.

    Interesting choice. I'm liking Leslie Nielson for Gold.

    I was watching Monday's Prison Break online yesterday, and I found myself thinking that Rober Wisdom (Lechero) could be a pretty second choice for Ganz. Same goes for the actess playing "Susan B. Anthony" and T'Prynn.

    "Starfleet Corps of Engineers - in color!"

    "My name is Captain David Gold. There'd been a recent wave of gorgeous Risan models found naked and unconscious in holosuites on the west side. Unfortunately, I was assigned to transport the SCE..."

    "We're sorry to bother you at a time like this, Ambassador. We would have come earlier, but your planet wasn't dead then."

    ACT II: LIEBER :guffaw:

    "Bajoran synthale?"
    "Yes, I know."
    "Well."

    "Our next stop was a star system known as Little Italy..."

    I'm nnot sure if this has been said before, but I think that Christopher Judge (from SG-1) would make a good Taran'Atar

    It has been said before, yes. By KRAD, if I recall.

    I'd go for Tony Todd m'self.

    ^ Both of those are pretty good ideas.

    Although, has Taran'atar ever said "Indeed"? :lol:

    Yeah, I've been leaning toward Judge for Taran'atar. But Todd works, too....

    So, does Gold keep a still running in his quarters for after-duty?

    If you chop off the facial hair, I can see a young Chuck Norris ("Good Guys Wear Black" era) as Calhoun.

    Cue music: "When you're in Starfleet, look behind you, cos that's where Calhoun's gonna be"

    I can also see Chuck Norris as Calhoun and Christopher Judge as Tranatter and what about the Rock as Si-quan.

    I think you mean Taran'atar and Si Cwan.
