Any ideas for Karin Noosar (the POV Cadet in Ch. 19 of Articles of the Federation)?
Neither BSG happened. They were stories portrayed by actors on soundstages, reading from scripts. What a waste of time to argue over which imaginary story is more imaginary.
^ Almost as pointless as lecturing people about it.
But definatly equel to pointing out the pointing out......
From the new Seekers novel, Second Nature, by David Mack -- here are my choices for a few crew members:
Hesh: Michael Emerson
Taryl: Morena Baccarin
Dastin: Chris Pratt
Hm. I like Emerson for Hesh. Morena Baccarin for Taryl is actually who we listed in the Seekers series bible. However, Chris Pratt doesn't really fit my image of Dastin Faro; I prefer my imaginary casting of Ryan Reynolds.
Everyone in every novel: Christopher Walken
Not gonna lie, this increased my enjoyment of Treklit by like eighty percent.
Has anybody ever considered mentally casting themselves in a role?
uh...no...who would ever do that ?
I once based the main character in an original SF story on myself, only to be told by a beta reader that that character was bland and boring. Since then, I haven't dared try it.
I've already told KRAD that I have a huge crush on Jurva, the bekk from "The Unhappy Ones", so I have a choice to play her: Katherine Moennig.
(I would never recommend that she play a "regular" Klingon but she would do quite well as a QuchHa' like Jurva)
Our homework for tonight: think about which Trek Lit character, major or minor, we would portray (if you want to be safe, be the voice actor for a non-humanoid ).
I'll admit I have thought I could be a pretty voice for Torvig if he were to ever appear in a Trek production. I've wanted to be an actor since I was little, and being in Trek or something like it has always been my absolute dream. Torvig is exactly the kind of role I would love to play.
I'm sure that would be true for most of us here. Try your goateed evil self - everyone is cooler in the mirror universe.
An excellent suggestion.
Not strictly literature, but he was named there, so I suggest myself for Hiram Roth.
^Are you really Robert Ellenstein, then?
^ Unfortunately, no, and nobody has ever confused us either.
I'm bald and bearded. It's a start.
And as Mr. Ellenstein died in 2010, it's unlikely that anyone will mistake you for him.
I think we all know who I'd play from TrekLit, given a fraction of a chance.
