    I'd absolutely love to see a Short Trek, a Lower Decks episode or even just a sequence of the main characters in live action.
    Due to the Cerritos flying trough an anomaly, badgey holo deck manipulation etc.

    When I see the cast being interviewed and interacting on "The Ready Room", they do seem like they could pull off live-action versions very easily. Just give Jack Quaid some purple hair and he's done.

    They don't?

    Most do, except for the actor voicing Shaxs.

    And Gillian Vigman (T'ana) and Jack McBrayer (Badgey). ;)

    Just checked. I don't think Fred Tatasciore (Shaxs) needs much makeup work. ;)

    Somewhere a fan is photoshopping fur onto a picture of Vigman.

    I remember a 1978-ish interview with Gene Roddenberry in which he remembered suggesting to Majel Barrett that she could do double duty as Dr Chapel and a live-action M'Ress in ST-TMP, and she was unimpressed.

    I would watch that. But I think not as a full lenght episode, maybe a Short Trek. And I believe someone had something like that in mind, because the actors of the Lower Deckers resemble their characters alot.

    Repeating what I said in the episode 4 thread...

    If they do, the production needs to hire the team who created the Sisters of Plenitude makeup for the Doctor Who episodes New Earth and Gridlock to depict Dr. T'ana.

    Novice Hame & Sisters of Plenitude

    Seldom do feline makeup designs have "fur" punched into the appliances, even for big budget theatrical movies. But they did for Doctor Who, a TV series!
