If you think Science Fiction is your drug of choice, then it’s time to experience the ‘blast from the past’ and get high. Star trek is the good old franchise, captivating the hearts of millions since 1960’s and the phoenix is just about to be back from the ashes! We have two reasons to get excited first is off course, the July release of Star Trek Beyond in theatres and second, is the brand new Star trek TV series which is in the production phase and is on the trot to be aired next year. Not much is disclosed about the cast of TV show. The whole Internet is speculating about the cast and who is going to be next Star fleet captain. There were rumors about the new show being based on the storyline of the ever popular Star trek: The Next Generation, but Bryan Fuller, creator of the show strongly negated the chances. With all that excitement and buzz going on about Star trek coming back to its original medium the television we thought it would be the right time to ask the question to the fans that What would be the cast of “The Next Generation” if it was made today? I think our Star trek fanatic research team can help you with that. So, let’s start the dream casting attempts to find new faces, while retaining the physical traits parallel to the Original characters, and there’s no sin in trying to resurrect some of the addictive characters. Let’s get going!
12. Q – John Barrowman
Ever thought of a Star trek character who you always find on the boulevard of being friend and foe? Right guess. It’s the iconic Q. He is fascinated with Picard and the crew of the Enterprise, giving them the shock of their lives through his so-called ‘tests’, which turn out to be life-threatening in multiple instances. No doubt, you cannot call him a human by any shade of imagination, still, the apparently ominous villain turns out to be quite friendly at the end of the tale. Well, why not let John Barrowman try out this role? Featuring in TV shows like, Doctor Who, Arrow and Torchwood. He has the everlasting essence of power and vigour that runs through his veins, making him tailor-made for the role of “Q”, which was previously played by John DeLancey.
11. Tasha Yar – Gwendoline Christie
Remember “Tasha Yar”, the muscular strong woman as a security officer in TNG? The role played by Denise Crosby is still in the minds of the fans. In spite of Tasha Yar’s early death in the series, who could have forgotten her contribution to the Starfleet? Well, she was resurrected back to life, thanks to Guinan. Our team choose Gwendoline Christie, as the dream actress who can play “Tasha Yar”. Gwendoline Christie has striking similarities with Denise Crosby. She has proved her acting talents in one of the most popular tv shows of modern era, “Game of thrones”, as “Brienne of Tarthshe”, ready to take orders and executes them with devotion. She sure can step into the shoes of security office, “Tasha Yar”.
