Star Trek has a pretty long tradition of reusing actors and actresses between series, and even between seasons. Sometimes they only play minor characters, but other times the character-of-the-week becomes a major character in the next show. Armin Shimerman who played some Ferengi bit-parts in TNG, and went onto play Quark in DS9. Or James Cromwell: a few characters in TNG and went onto play Zephram Cochran in First Contact, as examples. So, if you were in charge of casting a new Star Trek series, what particular actors or actresses would you reuse into new parts? Who did they originally play, and who would you choose them to portray? Here are some of my choices: Sonita Henry. She had the minor role playing the alien nurse, at the start of Star Trek 2009, and I thought she looked fantastic. I'd love to see her portray an alien nurse or CMO in a new series. Susanna Thompson. She played the Borg Queen in Voyager (and nailed it!), and also Lenara Kahn: where she famously kissed Jadzia in 'Rejoined'. I think she would make a great Janeway-esque captain. Stephanie Niznik. She played the Helmsman in ST: Insurrection.
