    A return by Suzie Plakson, in any role. So that she can increase the number of different Star Trek characters she had portrayed.

    Oh, and Peter Jurasic, I'd love to see as a Ferengi or other total schemer

    Adrian Pasdar as a Cardassian.

    In fact, they should bring over the Political Animals cast wholesale. With the ratings, it probably won't get another season.

    Political Animals is, indeed, cancelled. So...

    Sigourney Weaver - Starfleet Admiral
    Carla Gugino - Romulan
    James Wolk - Vorta
    Sebastian Stan - Romulan spy pretending to be Vulcan
    Ciaran Hinds - Klingon
    Adrian Pasdar - aforementioned Cardassian
    Dylan Baker - weasly Fed bureaucrat
    Ellen Burstyn - Harry Mudd's ass-kicking space pirate momma

    Scary how easy that was. :D

    I dunno. Chiwetel Ejiofor comes to mind, probably a first officer or a counselor or a security chief or something. Also David Constabile, as an engineer or a science officer or basically anyone who has to sound all technical and nerdy.

    I like Khandi Alexander or Giancarlo Esposito for the captain. Probably a little obvious to suggest Danny Pudi would be a shoo-in for a Vulcan.

    That is a brilliant pick.
    Well... I love Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison and she'd be amazing as a Star Trek captain, but not so sold on making that character also unbalanced. It might be interesting to have a captain who did have a neurological illness of some kind, though, as it's obviously something we haven't had, but being Star Trek it'd no doubt be an illness that can be cleanly and regularly medicated.

    Michelle Rodriguez as the same character she always plays, except without the part where she dies horribly.

    It would also be cool to see Ciaran McMenamin in Trek.

    Tobias Menzies would make an excellent Vulcan.

    James Woods as a slimy but charismatic Section 31 operative.

    Jim Caviezel as a Romulan.

    Kyle Chandler. Every day he gets a comm message from the future and has to set about trying to prevent the disasters described in it.

    Sigh, I miss Early Edition. :(

    Oh I could totally see him as one friendly captain who gives stern fatherly talking-tos.

    I remember that show! I couldn't remember it's name (and had no idea the lead was Kyle Chandler, it's been a while) but I used to watch that a lot.

    Good choice I like Adrian as an actor and I think he'd be really good as a Cardassian should he ever get a part in any trek series.
