    Looking forward to his appearance in the sequel. He worked with Leonard Nimoy in a stage production, once.

    Weller would make an awesome Gary Seven. He'd be more bad ass than the familiar version of course.

    Though rumor has it that Weller is playing a CEO that may not be the case. Bad Robot is known for giving it's actors fake script pages to ensure secrecy. On Lost when they cast the roles of Jacob and the Man in Black they were identified as corporate big wigs instead of the ancient supernatural characters they turned out to be on the show.

    A CEO of what, though? That's the big question.

    I can see Peter Weller playing Gary Seven. Having played a government agent(unfortunately a villain)on 24, he could pull it off.

    Maybe Gary Seven moves up to be CEO of a small encyclopedia research company.

    I doubt that it's going to be any previously-established Trek character.

    And we know this how?

    CEO just implies that the character is the head honcho (normally an intolerable ass) in charge of making the lives of others quite miserable.

    CEO might also - call me crazy, I dunno - imply that the character is the chief executive officer of some sort of corporation.

    Tell me all the reasons that there's no such creature in the Star Trek universe, but I'm going to go meditate for a while anyway.

    He'd make a good Ambassador Fox.

    Imagine how dismissive Fox would be of bumped-up cadet Kirk....

    Well, there is the Dytallix Mining Corporation. A corporate entity that was mentioned in the 1st Season NG episode 'Conspiracy'.

    For all we know, the Orpheus Mining Company mentioned in the Enterprise episode 'Terra Prime' could still be in existence. Since Peter Weller guest starred in that two-part adventure, maybe he would be playing a descendant of John Fredrick Paxton.

    The possibilities are limitless.

    It could also mean that Weller's playing the Klingon in charge of Rura Penthe, since the prisoner's mine dilithium there. I imagine they are doing it for somebody's profit. I guess one could call the position CEO, Mining Operations at Rura Penthe. I call it head honcho, in charge, making life miserable.

    Yes, and it could also mean that the character is - gee - the chief executive officer (CEO) of a corporation.
