Thanks for Slice of Sci-fi for finding this gem in the trash.
Here is the 1987 casting memo from Paramount pictures on potential acting talent for their new show Star Trek: The Next Generation. Of course, I have gone ahead and cast the show based on who I thought would have been a good alternative and paired photos from around 1987. We know they were cast correctly in the end!
