    Taylor Swift to the best of my knowledge has no interest in a acting career, a guest spot wouldn't be out of the question though.

    Summer Glau would make a fine choice to play one of main characters, should be within the price range, she would bring a good number of non-trek sci-fi fans to the early episodes.

    Kristin Kreuk and Allison Mack ... not sure who they are.

    Charlize Theron would be too expensive.

    They were both in the Smallville tv series about young Superman/Clark Kent.

    She's guest-starred on CSI and done at least one romantic-comedy movie, but, yeah, she's too busy with her singing career to do more than a guest-shot.

    I have little interest in who stars in it, I just want there to be a decent story. Also, because I have no idea who is "hot" right now, and the only name of those above I recognized was Charlize Theron, though I've never seen anything she's been in. I always confuse her with Cameron Diaz for some reason.

    Summer Glau would be amazing in Trek.

    I do think Dina Meyer would be a great Captain. I'd also like to see Jensen Ackles and Wentworth Miller in the main cast.

    Dina Meyer as Captain? Nice idea! I also think having Glau in Star Trek would be cool.

    If there's a new Trek series, it'll be maybe one or two known B actors and a bunch of unknowns. Sorry guys. The franchise isn't going to get a truly famous person that wants a huge salary. :)

    Haven't we seen Meyer in the captain's role? I wouldn't mind seeing Commander Donatra again, though. I loved Glau in The Sarah Connor Chronicles and think she'd be a great Trek character.

    ^Following up on my previous post, I think Carl Lumbly would make a great Trek character, maybe as Romulan. Michael Vartan is another Alias alum whom I think would be great if Will Decker's character were ever recast in a new series.

    I think there's a bit of a danger bringing in well-known actors for major roles on Trek, especially well-known genre actors. You could divide your projected audience before you've filmed a single frame.

    It would depend on how the actor/actress was used, IMO. Someone like Glau or Lumbly would be great as a guest star or recurring character (like Whoppi Goldberg) but not as a main character for the exact reason you mention. One of the things I like about Trek is the show's ability to elevate previously unknown actors by associating them with its brand name. I had no idea who Michael Dorn was before I saw him in TNG; now, I'd recognize him in just about anything he did.

    I know Meyer was in Star Trek: Nemesis as a Romulan commander, but I don't know if she ever played a starship captain on one of the series.
