    I sometimes picture Bea Arthur in my mind as Farkas. But she does not fill the role 100% for me.

    I'm starting to picture David Hyde Pierce for Kelas Parmak.

    It's really random and weird but for some reason I'm imagining the Cytherian Proctor, from TNG: Takedown looking like Bea Arthur and sounding like she did when she voiced the Fembot/Femputer in the Futurama episode Amazon Women in The Mood.

    Just had a thought on casting for Gell Kamemor:

    Jenn Colella. She's currently in the Broadway production of COME FROM AWAY (she plays a US airline captain). You can see her in this clip that they played during the Thanksgiving Day parade:



    Side note: I am really excited about seeing this show (which I plan to do in Toronto next spring) and I highly recommend it. I haven't been this stoked to see a show in YEARS.

    I've been thinking The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan could be a good Aneta Smrhova.

    Pretty sure that's Lupita Nyong'o.

    Is there any consensus for Choudhury? I scrolled through old posts a bit, and all I found was that David Mack envisioned the same actress who ended up playing the security chief on Discovery!

    My suggestion was Janina Gavankar, and I think CrossCult actually used her as the inspiration for their cover depiction.

    Thanks, that's helpful. It's been eight years since I last read a TNG relaunch novel, so I don't much much to hold onto here.

    eh, I don't think so. Unless I'm looking at the wrong novel cover.

    I think there was a draft cover that was based on Gavankar and a revised one that wasn't.

    By the way, since I've been using Devna from TAS: "The Time Trap" as a recurring character in Rise of the Federation, it occurred to me a while back that The Flash's Candice Patton could make a pretty good live-action Devna.

    After the "USS Callister" episode of Black Mirror, I now know that Jesse Plemons would make a great Adrik Thorsen (from the novel "Federation").

    Better, I think, than Jeremy Irons who was my previous choice for the role. Looking back, I realize that Plemons would fit better for the younger bleach-blond type that they seemed to be going for with Thorsen.

    As for Irons: I hereby recast him as Sir John Burke from the very same novel.

    Is it just me, or did Jesse Plemons look like an off brand Matt Damon in that episode? I mean, he kind of always does, but he looked more so like that in this instance.

    Also, is it weird that I always picture Hugh Laurie with long hair as Hugh Cambridge in the Full Circle-era Voyager books?

    Edit: Apparently not! Just saw this in the Memory Beta article: "Hugh Cambridge was named for actor Hugh Laurie (whose role as Dr. Gregory House was a direct inspiration for the character) and Cambridge University, which Laurie attended (although Counselor Cambridge attended Cambridge's rival school, Oxford)."
