Felicia Day played Vi on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she was doctor Holly Marten in Eureka!, she was Charlie in Supernatural, and she was June in Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. On top of all of this, Day’s YouTube channel Geek & Sundry has played an instrumental role in the recent rise of nerd culture. She’s also set to be a part of the new MST-3000 series.
Felicia Day’s nerd credentials are unparalleled and unquestionable. Not only is she fun and a talented actress, but she would bring attention and excitement from her very large fanbase to the new Star Trek series.
Day’s quirky and fun personality would make for a new and exciting style of captain. If the new show is looking to inject more modern humor, Day would be an excellent choice in the captain’s chair. Her friendship with Wil Wheaton might also lead to a fun Wesley Crusher return or cameo.
