    I know, I too have been thinking not just in terms of a captain but a full cast list.

    Amy Ryan as the captain. She can play a deadly serious professional, who commands leadership and respect. But she can also be surprising goofy and charming like as Holly, Steve Carrell's love interest on The Office. That sort of versatility would keep a female captain from becomeing dull.

    Titus Welliver who played Silas on Deadwood as well as the "Man In Black" in the season finale of Lost last year. Not as the capatin but as Ryan's first officer. I like that dynamic of a feminine, intuitive Captain supported by her grizzled badass XO. It would be similar to the (intended) dynamic between Janeway and Chakotay on VOY. But in practice like Adama and Tigh's relationship on BSG.

    Titus Welliver - maybe not a captain but he's the kind of actor I'd like to see in Trek. Sleazy space trader or Andorian?

    He's the kind of actor you have *already* seen in Trek. ;)

    But that never stopped anyone from being on Trek again as someone else... :) So there's no reason why you couldn't get your wish!

    Laurence Fishburne.

    Or maybe Eastwood as Captain Harry Calahan:

    Captain Calahan rose from the command chair as he faced the Klingon staring back on the viewscreen. The bridge of the Klingon cruiser was a mess of debris, flame, and smoke. The Yorktown had dealt it a serious blow.
    Calahan steeled his gaze and spoke between clenched teeth:
    "I know what your'e thinkin'. Did he fire six photons or five? Or five phasers or six? Well, ya know, in all the confusion I can't remember myself. So, you gotta ask yourself one question....Do I feel lucky? Well do ya ya Klingon punk!!!"

    If there was good material and writing as there was in Farscape, there could be a relationship between the two (as many say there should have been on Voyager), or they could be at each other's throats as in SG-1.

    He'd never do it, But it would be great to See Harrison Ford in Star Fleet.

    Of Course, there's also Pierce Brosnan.

    Of course it would be nice to have a non-human as the captain for once. Perhaps an Andorian, . . .

    And No I'm not suggesting Pierce play an Andorian specifically.

    I'm a little heartbroken that no one has mentioned David Hasselhoff!

    J/K

    Here is an off the wall one for you... Howie Long! He would be a kick ass Starfleet Captain.

    Michael Rosenbaum wouldnt be a bad choice either.

    And I don't now the guy's name, but the actor that plays Noah Bennett on Heroes could pull it off.

    How about Dennis Haysbert--AKA President Palmer of 24?

    That man DEFINES "commanding presence"!

    ^^ Best pick so far, Rush..IMO..

    How about Robert Knepper. I was really impressed with this guy on HEROES. I think he could really shine as the star of a STAR TREK show..

    ENSIGN: Captain, we have a distress signal coming from the planet.

    CAPTAIN HAYSBERT: Let me pray to Jobu for guidance.

    SECURITY CHIEF: Klingons are attacking them sir. I say we arm the torpedoes and give them a big shitburger to eat!

    CAPTAIN HAYSBERT: Shitburger?!?
