Main Mission

We have TWO main missions this week!

Warpspeed Roundtable

Follow-up on our question from last episode: If you could choose anyone to be the voice of the computer on the Discovery, who would it be?

Listener Diane wrote in to say “I would have said Patrick as well before you all brought it up but I was thinking it would be funnier if the voice was a famous computer so how about HAL! Or Holly – runner up Lost in Space robot or Gort!”

She also followed up with another suggestion “How frustrating would it be if it was Steven Wright!”

We also asked the question on Facebook and got a huge list of answers:

  • Neil Degrasse Tyson
  • Placido Domingo
  • Gene Roddenberry
  • Mr. T
  • Paul Reubens (REX LIVES!)
  • The voice of Siri
  • Jim Dale
  • Ving Rhames as Marsellus Wallace
  • James Earl Jones
  • Mira Furlan
  • Morgan Freeman
  • Majel Barrett
  • Nichelle Nichols
  • Betty White (but only as her Golden Girls character, Rose)

This week, we’ve doing some more re-casting. Now that Jean Luc Picard is back, it would be interesting to see one of his dear friends return. Namely, Lwaxana Troi, daughter of the Fifth House, holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed. Of course, Lwaxana was originally played by Majel Barrett, who passed away in 2008.

The Question: Who would you cast to appear as the larger-than-life Lwaxana?
