Following on from our Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fantasy castings, we here have decided that the next Star Trek series we'd like to have a bit of fun with is Star Trek: Voyager! Voyager was a pioneering iteration of Star Trek, with Kate Mulgrew in the lead as the fearless Captain Janeway. There was a great variety in the rest of the crew, leading to one of the most diverse casts in Star Trek history.
That is a spirit that we very much want to retain. Now, this is obviously simply a fun 'what if?' type of scenario. Although we won't be casting anyone who has shuffled off this mortal coil, we will also not be hindering ourselves with such silly considerations as, you know, budgets!
We have scoured the casting pages for those who we think would actually bring something fresh and exciting to these roles, while also keeping the spirit of the original in place. With that, here is our list of the perfect actors for a modern day Star Trek: Voyager reboot.
12. Seska - Noomi Rapace
Seska is of course the turncoat Cardassian infiltrator, assigned to spy on Chakotay's Maquis cell. Once she finds herself flung across the galaxy, she quickly reveals herself and escapes to work with Voyager's enemies.
Knowing that she is a spy does nothing to affect the rewatch, and Martha Hackett did a fantastic job of bringing the shady character to life. To capture this fully, the new actor needs to be able to switch from deeply trustworthy to out and out villain on a whim.
Noomi Rapace of course burst onto screens in the Swedish versions of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. Since then, she has appeared in many other roles, with Prometheus being one of her biggest to date.
She is able to play both vulnerable and terrifying, displaying a power that suggests one should absolutely not mess with her.
She would be a fantastic addition to this fantasy reboot!
