    Now you're not making sense. What's next? Members of the Royal Shakespeare Company playing Trek characters? :guffaw:

    Not in fantasy casting - they're totally unnecessary there!

    So does anyone have any ideas for the Aventine, and Columbia crews yet? Hmmm, should I put Tarses under my DS9 or Destiny cast lists?

    Well, we know that Tarses is Spencer Garrett (cf. TNG: "The Drumhead"). Bowers has been variously suggested to be Michael Boatman, Ving Rhames, and somebody else who slips my mind. I believe Dave has said he favors Lena Headey for Lonnoc Kedair.

    I imagine Law & Order's Milena Govich as Mikaela Leishman.

    My take on the Aventine crew:

    CPT Ezri Dax: Nicole de Boer (natch)
    CDR Samaritan "Sam" Bowers: Michael Boatman ("Spin City," "Arli$$," agree with KRAD)
    LCDR Gruhn Helkara: Paul Campbell ("Knight Rider," "Battlestar Galactica")
    LT Simon Tarses: Spencer Garrett (also natch)
    LT Oliana Mirren: Diane Kruger (National Treasure, Wicker Park)
    LT Lonnoc Kedair: Laurie Holden ("The Shield," The Mist)
    LT Mikaela Leishman: EDIT: I'll go with Christopher for Milena Govich, or maybe Robin Tunney from "The Mentalist?"

    Cool, I already have Roger Cross from 24 (Curtis Manning) as Bowers, and I'll go ahead and add Lena Headey and Milena Govich. I decided to just make a big Destiny cast list with everybody on it, so I'll have Tarses in both it and DS9's.

    When I wrote Bowers in Demons of Air and Darkness, I was thinking Boatman, but in A Singular Destiny, I found myself gravitating more toward Cross, in part in response to how Dave wrote Sam in Destiny.

    Is there any way to post word documents on here? Because I finally finished all of my cast lists for Titan, Greater Than the Sum, Vanguard, Terok Nor, DS9R, and SCE, and I'd love to share my current versions with everydbody, especially the authors. I'm almost done with Destiny, I just need Columbia, and a couple Aventine crew members.

    Where's the command? I was looking the other day, and I just looked again now, and I don't see anything about attatching files.

    I think that's only true for staff and premium members, but I could be wrong.

    Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

    I'm dragging up these old quotes since I wasn't here in 2006...

    :) You now rock even more, fyi.

    Thats kindof true.... she may have black in her heritage at some point, or maybe she just did something with her hair. But since Asian includes India etc., she looks Asian too me... plus, I think we need to think that she is half a younger Vaughn... lol!

    Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

    Odo'ital: I don't see why a black actor/actress couldn't play an Andorian. We've seen actors of all races play Cardassians successfully, and they're also quite pale. (Though was it a trick of the light, or did they give Broca's skin a warmer grey hue than we usually saw?)

    Based on her description in "Resistance" (straw blonde hair, mid-20's but looking rather for her age, freckles), Sara Jean Underwood as Sara Nave

    ^^I don't know who that is, but she looks a little like Kristin Bell, who was my choice for Nave.
