... in Star Trek: Discovery—much to my extreme irritation—I'll need a replacement as my visual representation of Commander T'Vaar (since I'm seriously considering the resurrection of Liberty after a 15-month hiatus).

While I'll make the final determination myself, I'd enjoy suggestions from the gallery. Peanuts are optional.

Are you still going with an actress of the Asian persuasion for the part? What is your criteria for T'Vaar?

You mean, of course, "What are your criteria?" "Criterion" is singular. "Criteria" is plural.

I tend to be inclined towards a woman of East Asian descent for the role, but it's not graven in stone. (Before I employed Michelle in earnest, Catherine Bell had the role of T'Vaar.)

I'm not interested in anyone in their teens, twenties, or even very early thirties. I'd also probably shy away from anyone older than, say, 55. No golden or platinum blondes and no blue eyes. Otherwise, I'd entertain any possibility.

For Asian actresses, I'd suggest Zhang Ziyi or Gong Li.

Outside of Asian actresses, I'd suggest Linda Fiorentino (I'm aware she's outside of your stated age range, however, I think she might still be worth considering), Jennifer Connelly, or Kate Beckinsale.

I would recommend Penelope Cruz, Famke Janssen, Maria Bello. Those are just off the top of my head. I apologize for my mistake in grammar.

She looks like she'd make a perfect T'Vaar, Joe.

i'd say that gives you more of a right to her than they do. :-) (\fern/)

What about Maggie Q? Or is she overused and too easy a choice?

I think she'd work quite well. And I don't consider her overused.

I'm not going to use her. I'm now considering Bruce Lee's daughter, Shannon.
