The Premise: This is the "JJ" continuity of my own Starship and it's crew.
The Story: When Federation hero Garth of Izar (Oldman) revolts with his ship, the USS Republic, kills most of his crew and joins forces with the Orion pirate queen Marta (Bianca), his old friend Admiral Wesley (Warburton) assigns the task of bringing him to justice falls upon the unlikely shoulders of the eccentric Andorian Captain Venthen (Perrette). She is given command of the USS Jeanne D'Arc, a ship purpose built for hunting down the Orion Pirates. Joining her are the secretive Commander Canaris (Law), Science officer Selin (Watson), Chief Engineer Price (Smith), the Caitin Helmsman M'Pinga (Granger), hotshot fighter pilot Cam Decker (Bostick) and Starfleet Marine hero Major Tachibana (Takahashi).
Pauley Perrette as Captain Venthen: This role required a person who could play VERY eccentric characters. Who better than Abby from NCIS?
Jude Law as Cdr Canaris: Cryptologist are at the nerdy end of the Espianoge game. Law can play a man of Mystery who not really that much of a badass, but give him a minute and he can unlock your secrets.
Emma Watson as Selin: Emma Watson is used to playing the smartest woman in the building, so she fills the part of Selin well.
Matt Smith as Mr. Price: A suggestion by De3pbl4ck, it fits.
Holiday Granger as M'Pinga: Since looks aren't an issue, I could put anyone in the M'Pinga role, but I find Holiday to be VERY cute and so she gets to be M'Pinga
Devon Bostick as Cam Decker: Bostick is the right age for this role, and Cam has alot of Roderick in him... plus it'll be funny watching the Major run him ragged after giving her attitude.
Yayoi Takahashi as Major Tachibana: Yayoi's not a real person. It's a nod to my NNW stuff (the first art I posted on DA) She's a character I developed for Neo-Nippon Wrestling, but they both used the same Aiko 3 character set-ups and hair.
James Marsden as Dr. Cirrix: No reason in particular.
Jennifer Hudson as Nurse Cirrix: Simply put, she has the right look.
Gary Oldman as Garth of Izar: Can he play it? Of course he can. He can play ANY Role you throw at him and you wouldn't know it's him unless you see the credits.
Vivia Bianca as Marta: Loved her in the starz series Spartacus (season 1 and 3) and I know she can pull off playing an insane schemer.
Patrick Warburton as Admiral Wesley: Why not? I'm just trying to find a part for H. Jon Benjamin to play (Maybe Harry Mudd?)
George Takai as Gi-san Tachibana: Cause George Takai rules... also, he plays the Majors grandfather (it' would be a short scene to introduce the Major)
