DO WANT

Which Actress Would Bryan Fuller Want to Captain His Hypothetical Star Trek Series?


“I would love to do something on the Reliant. I want Angela Lansbury … Not Lansbury! I want Angela Bassett to be the captain, that’s who I would love to have, you know Captain Angela Bassett and First Officer Rosario Dawson. I would love to do that version of the show and but that’s in the future to be told.”Bryan Fuller on whom he and Bryan Singer would cast in a new Star Trek series, if they made one.

Don’t get your hopes up, though. He also said them doing a series is “basically wishful thinking. We both would love to do a Star Trek series, and I think Star Trek is in J.J. Abrams’ purview as it should be, because I loved Star Trek, the movie, and I’m looking forward to the next one. Once again, I would love to revisit that world because I found it so creatively fulfilling but I think that’s under his guard, and if it ever came up I would jump on the opportunity.”

I just wanted to leave you with the mental image of a Star Trek series ruled over by Angela Bassett and Rosario Dawson. (And one starring Angela Lansbury, for that matter.) Can you blame me?

    I don’t really think J J Abrams should be the only one who gets to have star trek…I really like this casting idea.

    Angela Lansbury would be an admiral, obviously.

    OH PLEASE YES ANYTHING WITH ANGELA BASSETT!! Angela Lansbury can be a reoccuring Admiral. Rosario Dawson can just continue to rock!!!!

    Pretty sure I would watch the hell out of that. Can Angela Lansbury be the series’ doctor with a dark secret?

    Angela Bassett would be an excellent choice for a new Star Trek series… A new series need to be set in future of the future… so post TNG, DS9, etc… Part of the problem with doing prequel type of shows is that you are limited by established timeline and you most popular episodes always end up being the episodes where you reference future events… It just makes things stagnant and doesn’t make you feel like you can really “move forward”… if that makes sense. The next series needs to be in the 25th century or something…
