Fantasy Casting- Star Trek: The Next Generation
With all the hullabaloo about J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek franchise reboot, I feel like it is just a matter of time before somebody decides to reboot The Next Generation. It could be a fun prospect, incorporating the more modern sensibility of the show and its characters with latest cutting edge special effects could make for a very entertaining film. The characters of the show are, in many ways, just as interesting and distinct as those from the original series, so casting them correctly is key.
Let’s see what we’ve got.
