50 Actors Who Could Be The Next Star Trek Captain

Emily Mortimer

Emily Mortimer has been involved in many different roles in her long acting career and performed in a wide range of productions. Her appearances in The Newsroom were especially memorable as she stared opposite Jeff Daniels in the award winning series. She has a very varied history of difficult parts to play and she has received critical acclaim for much of her work.

Being English, she would probably take tea, earl grey, hot like Captain Picard and she might be more of a thinker than some of the other suggestions on this list.  We can’t see her getting involved in too much hand to hand combat, but with a strong team around her, she wouldn’t need to. She would be a thinking captain and a master diplomat, analyzing all the possible outcomes before diving straight in like some other captains.

Mortimer has an extremely interesting a petite look about her, but she can be deceptive and lure enemies into a false sense of security. The Borg and any other potential enemy would surely underestimate her at their peril.
