In an interview with E! Angela Bassett responded to the rumor started by Bryan Fuller himself in 2013 that he would choose Bassett as his starship Captain.
In an interview with Den of Geek in 2013, Bryan Fuller, now executive producer of Star Trek All Access, revealed what his plans would be if he were ever given the keys to a new Star Trek television series of his own.
“I want Angela Bassett to be the captain, that’s who I would love to have. You know, Captain Angela Bassett and First Officer Rosario Dawson.”
Now that Fuller does have a say in who takes up the new captain’s chair, would Bassett be a realistic choice?
According to E! who talked to Bassett at the premier of Underground, a new WGN America show about the Underground Railroad, Fuller’s dream captain will have to remain just that: a dream.
“That’s thrilling,” Bassett told E! “That’s very nice, but how am I going to do that and American Horror? How is that going to work? Oh my gosh, and raise twins?”
So with Bassett seemingly off the table, who would you pick to be the captain of Star Trek All Access?
