That's been my headcanon.
Adam Scott's Unnamed Defiant Helmsman
Seriously, it would be a great deep cut and makes sense for the show:
This Helmsman served on the Defiant (and presumably DS9) in 2373.
We know Mariner was on DS9 sometime between 2372 and 2375. It's conceivable Mariner knows this guy.
They like to cast comedians/comedic actors for guest roles.
It would be a fun expansion for the canon, detailing a nameless character that we would otherwise forget if the actor hadn't gone on to do bigger things.
This would be terrific.
Honestly, I'm ready to see a younger Liam Shaw.
Things/people I would like to see:
-The forcefield belts from TAS
-Jarada & Tzenkethi (this would be a great place to bring them to life)
-Phlox (was it ever established how long Denobulans live?)
-The Doctor (VOY)
-Younger Raffi and Rios
-Lower Deckers from TNG episode "Lower Decks"
-Mudd or Cyrano Jones
-Chekov and more Sulu
-More 24th century Trek characters
-TOS/The Motion Picture/TOS movie era species
-New Frontier characters
The Red Angel. Seriously, it was so goofy, there's gotta be SOMETHING they can do with it.
Ah, a fellow member of Team Dipshit!
I'm still waiting for my membership card to arrive in the mail!
I choose to interpret this comment as proposing that Adam Scott's guy is a younger Liam Shaw, and I choose to agree with that proposal.
Shaw was an engineer, not a helmsman.
Besides, who else but Todd Stashwick himself could play him?
People change careers in Starfleet all the time.
Even Geordi was a helmsman before becoming an engineer...
He's taking after Geordi and O'Brien.
They should have a Gargoyles reference in LD, considering a number of Trek actors have worked on that show.
There have been references to Cardassian gargoyles on bedposts in DS9 and Akaali gargoyles have been seen in a shop seen in ENT, so its completely feasible.
Or even better, have Keith David guest star.
I want to see some kind of reference to Sybok, maybe visit the planet of galactic peace. Basically, Star Trek V references would be fun for me.
What if Mariner was on the Defiant in that mission? They've put a lot of hints that she was a kid on board the Enterprise D (but still haven't flat out stated it), and her ending up on the Defiant and Enterprise E at their worst times would be apt for Mariner.
I liked Lt Neeley's brief appearance in Rocks and Shoals (DS9) and wished they'd used her as a recurring character. Seeing her on LDS world be cool.
That's what happens when there's nothing but dipshits in the shipping department!
Admiral Nechayev should come back
T'Pol, I believe Mike said he's a fan of hers. I know Jolene seems to have stepped from the industry. But it would be cool to see T'Pol and T' Lynn interact
