Was the actor originally cast as Dukat ever revealed?

    I find that odd; with all the behind-the-scenes info about Star Trek out there I don't think that actors name has ever been revealed.

    That would actually have been funny if they'd done it.

    I've always wondered this as well. Maybe we'll find out when they put DS9 on Blu-Ray? :)

    I wasn't aware there were other choices besides Marc Alaimo. I do know that Stephen Macht, who eventually appeared on DS9 as a Bajoran officer, was one of the candidates for the role of Picard.

    Was it Shatner? Probably Shatner.

    This is the first I've heard of the recasting, very interesting!

    When the blurays come out, I hope they do something similar as what they did with the Picard alternative, and even some of the test footage, since he did complete a day of filming according to memory-alpha.

    I can't imagine any other actor playing Dukat! I never knew that they originally cast someone else!
