    I toyed with this idea in a single post in another thread a while back. My choice for a film version of Harry was Jack Black. Though Seinfeld's Wayne Knight would likely be closer to Carmel's style.

    I remember when a Mudd type character showed up in Stargate. I was like.. I'm over this. And I'm still over it.

    If we see him in the background of a space station that Our Heroes are passing through, perhaps with furry critter held aloft to admirers and he is never ever mentioned that would be fine. Or not.

    ^I'll say this though, I'd cave on my Mudd resistance if it was Jack Black :adore:

    The chase through the asteroid field at the start of "Mudd's Woman" would work well - Mudd in the fast little ship from ID, zipping between asteroids, and the gigantic Enterprise in chase, blasting them out of the way with phaser strikes.

    I don't think Mudd as shown in TOS would be appropriate in nuTrek.
    nuKirk would probably admire PrimeMudd :rolleyes:

    Don't you mean "The Outrageous Okona?":vulcan:

    That or bang his daughter, which would inevitably result in a conflict with Carol...

    Not as a villain, but Mudd could work very well as a side character who gets caught up in some random adventure with the Enterprise crew.

    I guess he was supposed to be one of the dead people or something?

    ^ Yep. The character of Ralph Offenhouse was created when it became impossible to use Mudd.

    They should ask Shatner to play Mudd in NuTrek...
    (he's fat enough now)

    Have him fall/get pushed off a bridge...

    Then he could die in both versions... Stupidly.

    :rofl:

    I could see them using a Harry Mudd/Cyrano Jones character in the next Trek movie. Not as a main 'Villain', but certainly as a third party working both sides for personal gain. It would be fun to add a bit of comedy to a franchise that had been dull and dower under Rick Berman for so many years.
