Catherine Dent

The Shield was an epic cop drama set in downtown LA. Catherine Dent will always be best known for her appearances in The Shield from 2002 until 2008. She played Officer Danni Sofer, a young officer who had to cope in a very dangerous world. She thrived under the pressure of such a role and was an extremely important factor in the success of the show.

The Shield went on to won 2 Golden Globes and will be fondly remembered as a classic television series before the age of Netflix. Catherine Dent would make a fine Star Trek captain and having spent years dealing with the most dangerous criminals of Los Angeles, wouldn’t be scared of taking on any rowdy Romulans. She would be a tough captain, capable of making big decisions when the time called for it.

Dent is receiving attention at the moment for her work as a writer and producer, although the opportunity to become a captain on the new Star Trek series might be too much to turn down.
