    So.
    I occasionally see an actor or an actress, usually one that hasn't been in to many things and think .. They'd do good in a trek show.

    One that initiated this is Neil McDonough. The one who played Lt Hawk in First contact.
    He's a great actor, and thought .. He'd make a good captain or Admiral on Strange New Worlds. Maybe an ancestor to Lt Hawk. Or maybe Robert April.?? That would be good.

    Any other people youd like to see in a trek series?

    I got the sudden image in my head of him head-slapping Harry Kim and saying "And that's why you've never been promoted, Ensign Kim."

    There are a few actors off the top of my head that come to mind that I’d like to see on Trek.

    Wes Studi as Robert April.
    Tika Sumpter as anybody.
    Tom Hanks as any character he wants to play.
    Kelly Hu as anyone.
    Joan Cusack, maybe as a Romulan.
    Chiwetel Ejiofor as anyone.
    Tasia Zala as anybody.
    Jaime Camil as whoever the most handsome character in the galaxy is.

    It's almost incomprehensible that Willem Dafoe hasn't found his way into a Star Trek movie by now

    Hugo Weaving seems like he'd be a good match for some Star Trek too

    I would like to see Trek lean heavily into genre casting.So alumni of BSG,Stargate,X-files, B5 etc.(lots of Canadian talent available).
    Plus Michael Ironside.And Lance Henriksen.And Kyle McLachlan.

    I think Mads Mikkelsen would be a great captain.

    He might actually be a decent choice for a Picard

    I think my subconscious was looking for a Picard replacement!

    I missed the bit @valkyrie013 said to pick relatively unknown actors but a man can dream. If I had few hundred million dollars to make a new Trek movie I'd hire them and Paul Verhoeven as director.

    Well any actor/actress really. Whatever y'all come up with.
    But for me it's actors that really haven't had a break or new, or someone it's been awhile since they had a good role.

    Speaking of a Picard replacement, I kept thinking of Vincent Cassel when I was reading the ST: Picard prequel novel The Last Best Hope.

    It's a good question. I've seen him do variations of the Badmiral in Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul, The Boys and The Mandalorian too. It'd be interesting to see him cast against type.

    Make him a Captain in a future show!
