    Grace Park is an OK choice for Prynn, but I really think Sandrine Holt would be a better fit, because of her own mixed ancestry.

    I don't disagree. Sandrine Holt was my longtime preference from Prynn. I resisted Grace Park for a long time. Now I find myself torn between the two.

    Which, now that I think about it, ain't a bad way to go. :devil:

    FWIW, I too see Sandrine Holt as Prynn and Robert Forster as Vaugn.

    KRAD, speaking of the dearly departed. Which one of your created characters from the IKS Gorkon did you visualize as the late Andre the Giant?

    Wow, I love all these picks, except Sean Conery, and that's only because of the accent. Appearance wise he's good, but I just can't get past the accent.

    Mila Jovovich as Shar is an interesting and unexpected pick, I never thought of using a woman for Shar.

    Now that I'm watching 24 Day 5, I must say that Roger R. Cross is perfect for Bowers, so I am changing my pick for Bowers from J. August Richards. :thumbsup:

    What accent is Vaughn supposed to have?

    I always hear him with very feint midwestern accent. Though, since he grew up on Berengaria (IV?) there's no telling what sort of accent he might have.

    I looked this one up, because I didn't recognize the name, and I don't watch Grey's Anatomy. She's not bad, but Suzie Plakson really is the #1 choice for Treir.


    Bleah. Couldn't we get someone who can, y'know, act?


    I never object to casting Michelle Yeoh..... :D

    Based on his picture in that one book (a Mission Gamma, I think), I can definitely see that. Of course, my mind will still probably play Sean Connery's voice in my head, just because I think he's really cool. :D But I think James Brolin or someone similar would work well, too.
    ( :wtf: What am I talking about? I haven't even read any Vaughn books yet! :vulcan: )

    He just looks like, in another time, he'd have been some crotchety old farmer out in the middle of nowhere, meanest sumbitch in town.

    If you really think there's a point to arguing over this nonsense, Keith, then by all means, carry on.

    Think of it as stress relief... leaving KRAD more time to concentrate on writing answers for everything we could ever want to know about Trek... and, you know, writing the odd novel in his down-time ;)

    Who's arguing? We're just shooting a rather pointless breeze here...... :)

    Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

    More than that. We had Season Two head writer, Tracy Tormé, at a New Zealand convention after his TNG stint. He had postulated a several-episode arc for Worf to follow "The Schizoid Man", with numerous references to Worf turning up at sickbay with unusual cuts and bruises, and obviously having an off-screen relationship with an Enterprise crewmember, finally revealing a few episodes later that it was with the Vulcan, Dr Selar.

    The producers said no to that idea, but loved the concept of exploiting the height and probable chemistry between Suzie Plakson and Michael Dorn, so when K'Ehleyr the half-Klingon was created, they invited Suzie Plakson back to play her.

    K'Ehleyr was a fantastic character, TNG could have done with more episodes with her in!

    I don't want to think too much about a Worf/Selar relationship though... that's just too bizarre :wtf:

    ^ Yeah, who would even think of putting a Vulcan and a Klingon in a sexual relationship? <...whistling innocently...>
