    NCIS doesn't have much life left in it.

    I think Weatherly would make an excellent ST captain.

    Ron Perlman as captain of a black ops-spy ship.

    I still find it fantastical that Ron Pearlman has never played a Klingon. This must happen so that balance can be restored to the cosmos!

    Sorry if it's already been said, but...

    Jeffrey Combs...He makes all of your arguments invalid:D

    Not only could he play the Captain, but he could also be all the sub-characters too:lol:

    No, but in all seriousness, Jeffrey Combs. Seriously...



    Maybe if he was Science Officer, but there's no way he deserves the chair. Though, I'd rather have him over Ben Browder.

    Here's another idea...Instead of all this "race/gender" talk when it comes to Captains, how about a different species other than human? That's never been done before. Like Jeffrey Combs playing an Andorian Captain?*shrugs*

    I like the idea of a nonhuman captain for a change. However, it might make Star Trek even more of a tough sell when it's already a tough sell anywhere on TV.

    Ben Browder should play a space rogue, not any sort of Starfleeter.

    Pull a Horatio Hornblower. The captain isn't the lead, but some young wet-behind-the-ears lieutenant is.

    Ron Perlman would be a very interesting choice. A no bullshit Captain toughened up by the Dominion War.

    You can't use Terry O'Quinn because of the canon violation!

    But James Cromwell, David Warner, Vaughn Armstrong, and Jeffrey Combs wouldn't be out of the question?

    Hey, if Law & Order can use Jerry Orbach as a defense-attorney-of-the-week only to later bring him back as a cast member then Star Trek can certainly re-use Terry O'Quinn even though he played Admiral Pressman. Especially since, as the above poster pointed out, it's not a new thing for Star Trek. How many times did Vaughn Armstrong come back? And how about Brock Peters, who was human both times (Joseph Sisko and Admiral Cartwright)? And let's not forget all the actors who've played multiple alien roles in Star Trek, some of whom even played different characters of the same race (Marc Alaimo played two different Cardassian characters, for instance) or multiple roles in the same tv show (like Jeffrey Combs, who played both Weyoun and Brunt in the same episode).

    All of those played only one human role, and were hidden behind tons of alien make up during their other appearances. So O'Quinn would have to play an alien. ;)

    Christopher Meloni has to be a Cardie.

    Lance Reddick though he'd probably make a better Klingon.

    He would be pretty awesome. I think he works well as a Vulcan or a Romulan as well.

    And Brock Peters played two humans, as did Robert Duncan McNeill, therefore your point is nullified. :P

    Hey, look. It's Tom Paris and Nick Locarno. Or is it Nick Locarno and Tom Paris?

    And I guess Admiral Cartwright changed his name and became a fry cook?

    It's amazing how much energy people invest into disproving a purely sarcastic statement.

    I mean... gee...

    I think I mentioned elsewhere in this thread that he's actually a big Trek fan - it inspired him to be an actor. He mentioned this to his Fringe writers, who also happened to be writing Trek, but sadly after the movie was cast. Apparently they said something along the lines of 'If only you'd told us, we had a part you would have been perfect for.' My bet is still Captain Robau.
