Over at Space.com, Don Lipper has put up another of his 'Andromeda' dispatches, talking to Robert Hewitt Wolfe about the upcoming SF show. After already talking about the other cast members last week, this time Wolfe also gives out some new info on Harper (played by Gordon Michael Wolvett), Beka Valentine (Lisa Ryder), Trance Gemini (Laura Bertram) and Rev Bem (Brent Stait). He starts out the interview by talking about the cast in general:

It's quite a dynamic group as we've discovered from shooting "D Minus Zero", which put them into a very ship-based, action-based environment. They just have a different dynamic. Very few of the regular characters are trained military officers and they have a lot of attitude. They are not very disciplined. They don't always follow the orders given to them. They never say "sir." They rarely say "captain." They never salute. They're never in uniform. It's just a different feel. They're definitely a bunch of scurvy dogs. They all have their own agendas, which really gives a nice charge to scenes where they may discuss different options to solve a problem.

In a typical show where all the officers are military and belong to the same organization, it tends to be "how do we do this?" But everyone has the same basic goal, to follow whatever the captain's decision is, is the approach to the solution. That's not a given here, that the other characters want to do what Dylan does. It's never a given and rarely even true.

They are seven very different people. They all come from different places. Physically they all look very, very different. Psychologically they are all very, very different. Some of them are calm, some of them are quite hyper. We have serene. We have tough. It's very nice. And we have Kevin at the center and he has a lot of dynamism in his performance too. It's a nice mix.
