Recast a sci fi show or movie
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:41:20 AM »
Shoutout to beatboks.

Recast any of the gazillion sci fi shows/movies past or present we know & love using different characters. Take the archetypes and plot/settings and put your spin on them. All entertainment genres and types of characters are on the table.
The only real rule is, be creative.
Subbing Mal Reynolds for Han Solo or vice versa for example, is meh.

Kicking thngs off w. a couple of builds i did over the weekend...:

A take on the show KILLJOYS, w. comic book characters.

MARIKO YASHIDA
(Dutch)


Like Dutch, Mariko’s a trained assassin, been mind screwed and manipulated, died and come back. Now she’s trying to get away from all that and at least use her skills productively.

SHINGEN YASHIDA
(Khlyen)


Always in the background, trying to manipulate Mariko is her dad Shinen. Does he love her? Sure, but he’s still okay using her to advance his agendas of which he has many.

DON & HANK HALL
(John & D’avin Jaqobis)


Like the Jaqobis, Don is the younger, smaller, smarter brother. Hank is the older, bigger, better fighter, w. good street smarts.

FRIDAY
(Lucy)


Small, quick, well armed vessel w. a friendly A.I. Its never been established if Friday’s A.I. is male or female, but it seems to really like Don, make of that what you will.

A.R.M.O.R.
(The RAC)


This is where Mariko, Don & Hank get paid, when not dealing w. their own drama, tracking down inter dimensional intruders and fugitives.

SIEGE
(Turin)


Not THE top guy at A.R.M.O.R., but still the guy Mariko, Don & Hank report to. They really get on his nerves, but they get results, so he doesn't fire them.

DEVLIN WAUGH
(Pree)


Badass gay bartender w. a past as fabulous as he is. Serves up advice and info as well as drinks.

THE OMAC VIRUS
(The Hullen)


Like the Hullen, Omac is a virus that infects unwitting humans, turning them into foot soldiers in their bid to conquer. Infected humans dont even know they're compromised until the virus activates.

My take on The Lexx, w. Different live action characters.

JACK PRESTON-Equilibrium
(Stanley H. Tweadle)


Faithfully worked for the bad guys, before making a heel-face turn. Now it seems everyone wants him and his new friends dead.

GIGOLO JANE-A.I.
(Zev Bellringer)


Built for pleasure, literally. Jane uses her abilities on friend and foe, man and woman, alike. But what does SHE really like?

R-Warm Bodies
(Kai Brunnen G)


Good looking undead guy who’s kept his humanity while all other zombies have lost theirs. Destined to do great things.

TRANSPORT BUG-Starship Troopers
(The Lexx)


Its from an ugly planet, a bug planet; a giant insect able to travel through space with no problem, and eager to destroy anything on two legs.

ZORDON-Power Rangers
(790)


Floaty super head (probably) able to keep the transport bug  in line. Zordon exists in two states at once, which lets him communicate with the bug in ways no one else can.

SARRIS-Galaxy Quest
(His Divine Shadow)


Evil alien insect overlord bent on conquest. Has a large armada and plenty of minions to do his bidding. Wants our heroes, especialy R, dead.

EDGAR-Men In Black
(Mantrid)


Minion of evil alien insect overlord, becomes the new bad guy, and takes over the standing mission of conquer everything, kill the heroes.

PINBACKER-Sunshine
(Prince of Fire)


New big bad with Satanic overtones. Unapologetically evil. Lives inside the sun itself.

GRENDEL’S MOTHER-Beowulf
(Vlad)


Vlad gave birth to the vampire legend after getting lost in time. Grendel’s mother does the same w. the Beowulf fable. She’s back now, and intent on killing R and stopping his destiny.

Han Solo and Chewbacca - Inigio Montoya and Fezzik


Princess Leia - Daenerys Targaryen

Upon request...

It helps that Star Wars is essentially a fantasy story in a sci-fi setting.

Okay here’s my AP inspired fantasy SW build...:

THULSA DOOM
(Palpatine)


Dark side shmark side. Doom just wants to make things...better.

PERSIANS
(Stormtroopers)


Helmeted nameless mooks in large numbers. Can shoot 10,000 arrows and not hit 300 guys.

PRINCE NUADA
(Vader)


Betrays his family to serve and learn magic under Doom.

THE GOLDEN ARMY
(The Death Star)


Figure in a fantasy setting it wouldnt be a ship that destroys planets but a force that levels Kingdoms. Vader was in charge of the DS, and Nuada can take charge of the GA, which he stole when he went to join Doom.

RON WEASLEY
(Luke Skywalker)


Kinda has that geeky young Luke vibe going on.

GINNY WEASLEY
(Princess Leia)


Went for a brother sister duo here. Ginny falling for the smooth, but much older Inigo pisses Ron off big time.

INIGO AND FEZZIK
(Han Solo and Chewbacca)


Like i said, spot on casting by AP on this one.

MADMARTIGAN
(Lando Calrisian)


Handsome rogue w. Questionable morals, and ALMOST as good w. a sword as Inigo.

BALTHAZAR BLAKE
(Obi Wan Kenobi)


The old wise master teaching Ron magic. Too bad he dies.

AKIRO
(Yoda)


Funny little fella who it turns out knows his shit. Mentors Ron after Balthazar dies. Also has a past w. Doom.

THE CASPARTINE
(The Millennium Falcon)


Cant do SW without the Falcon. In my version, before our story begins, Inigo won the sky vessel from Madmartigan, who bought it cheap from a retiring air pirate named Shakespeare.

Cool, you managed to get a Falcon.  I considered using a Conan figure somewhere but didn’t know where to fit them.

Another show i never watched, ANDROMEDA.
Read up on the concept & characters on Google/TV Tropes and doing a live action build...:

CHARLIE 27
(Dylan Hunt)


Heavy worlder/military man like Hunt.
From a present day MCU/DCEU mash up. Betrayed & shot 300 years into the furure, where everything is even more mashed up to include all movie/TV/timelines. Trying to figure out wtf is going on.

CARMEN VAZQUEZ
(Becka Valentine)


Ex Marine making an only semi legal living.
Captain of the decommissioned time ship WAVERIDER.
Unwillingly throws in with Charlie but soon becomes his number two. 

KURN
(Tyr Anaszi)


Proud warrior race guy.
The Klingons are pretty militant nowadays, and its debatable if he’s more loyal to them or the crew. Still, he respects Charlie’s power, and is willing to follw him for now.

DEX DEARBORN
(Seamus Harper)


The engineer and gadgeteer genius.
A retro kind of guy who can understand futuristic and alien tech no problem.
The youngest on the crew.

GIDEON
(Rommie)


The heart of the WAVERIDER.
After 300 years, though no longer time jump capable, this is still a superb ship. This isnt the best crew Gideon’s ever had on board, but its close. She manifests her physical form regularly to interact w. them.
 
ENOCH
(Rev Bem)


Member of a little known species of lizard men called Sleestaks from a free floating pocket dimension. Little known because most who meet them end up caught-killed-cooked-consumed. Sleestaks are basically a tribe of interstellar cannibals. A scientist & philosopher, Enoch’s the exception to the rule. Still he inspires a lot of fear when he’s recognized for what he is.

Y’VAINE
(Trance Gemini)


A living star.
Things have changed A LOT since Y’vaine last took human form. Something’s not right w. the sky though, and she wants to help sort things out.

——————————————

R’AS AL GHUL
(Telemachus Rhade)


R’as Al Ghul betrayed Charlie 300 years ago when they were supposed to be on the same side and kicked all this off by stranding him in the future. It turns out, there’s STILL a R’as Al Ghul around, to complicate his life.

AMARA, THE DARKNESS
(Spirit of The Abyss)


God’s sister.
She’s the reason realities started mashing together in Charlie's time, and are now almost combined into one huge clusterfuck 300 years later. She’s consolidating all her brother’s toys into one, to finally erase it all. And here’s Charlie, standing in the way.
