    ^Nope, they are described as slanted. People are generally able to recognize her as Vulcanoid even with the ears covered.

    I could see that.


    Hmm, she's popular this week.


    A little young for the part, I think. Keep in mind that Lavena has completed her child-rearing stage of life, which lasts for a couple of decades following maturity. That would make her somewhere around 40.


    Wrong ethnicity. Bowers is of African descent.

    I think the guy who plays Shepard in Stargate Atlantis would make a good Calhoun. He looks quite a bit like him on the cover of the New Frontier Captain's Table book.

    ^I could see that as well. Either him or Vladimir Kulich (he also seems to be a popular choice).

    Some others I forgot to mention last time around:

    McKenzie Calhoun: Hugh Jackman

    Jon Stephens (aka Lady Q) (see Before Dishonor): Jon Heder (I don't think anyone's come up with a suggestion for this character yet!)

    Renan Konya: Brandon Routh

    Dennisar: Domenick Lombardozzi

    Sonek Pran: Ron Glass

    Voice of Second-Gen White-Blue: Nicholas Briggs

    Voice of Second-Gen Cyan-Gray: Jessica Strauss (the voice of EVA in the Tiberium Universe settings of the Command and Conquer games, or at least in Tiberian Sun)

    Really? How did I miss that? Oh well, then maybe Denzel Washington.

    I tried to give her Vulcan eyebrows, but I'm not sure if I got the angle right.

    I haven't seen her on the show yet, but Daniela Sea from The L Word could do Burgy, at least based on her looks.

    A few more:

    Ensign Jill Rosado (Enterprise-E beta-shift operations officer in Losing The Peace): Isabella Rossellini (she is described as being in her 50s, and she did have a career before joining Starfleet)

    Ranul Keru: Khris Scaramanga (albeit with facial hair, and slightly longer hair on the top of his head)http://westhollywoodtrainer.com/files/khris-main.jpg

    Si Cwan: Rodrigo Santoro

    No. Rosado is described in Losing the Peace as being close to Picard's age, and her first career, as a university librarian, lasted almost 50 years.

    Some thoughts on the not-on-screen Aventine characters:

    Sam Bowers: Lance Reddick ("The Wire," "Fringe")
    --A bit wirier than some of the other choices, but I've seen him pull off a command role well in more than one performance.

    Mikaela Leishman: Jewel Staite ("SG: Atlantis," "Firefly")
    --A bit of a cheap-out given her genre pedigree, but I sort of see Mikaela as Kaylee Frye and Jennifer Keller thrown into a blender anyway...

    Lonnoc Kedair: Sasha Alexander ("NCIS")
    --Her NCIS character had the right bit of snark for Lonnoc, particularly thrown to Michael Weatherly's character, and I think she fits the bill physically.

    Gruhn Helkara: David Tennant ("Doctor Who")
    --A couple of Gruhn's science-rants in the novels seemed a bit Tenth Doctor-ish, and like Alexander for Kedair, Tennant has the right physical match for the reedy Zakdorn.

    I don't know about Reddick playing Bowers, but I could see him as Zett Nilric from Vanguard. I may be wrong, but I believe that one of the novels described him as looking "skeletal" or something similar, and Reddick certainly fits that description.
