It's obvious to everyone that they have had the DS9 and Voy movies on hold but how many JJ films will we have to endure before we see the amazing 1st DS9 film?

Will they have seperate DS9 and Voy franchises or blend them?

Will TNG characters be included such as Picardo, Riker, Troi and La Fledge?
Where did you come up with this idea that a DS9 or Voyager film has been put on hold? This is pure nonsense at it's worst. There's a better chance of resurrecting the Dodo bird from newly found DNA then there be a DS9 or Voyager movie. In fact given the choice between the two, I'd choose the Dodo bird.


Oh com'mon Jim! Tell us how you really feel

Well, I think there was probably some thought in doing a DS9 or Voyager film during their run time, but I'm reasonably certain that those ideas were scrapped when Star Trek Nemesis kinda flopped. Even though I like DS9 and Voyager better than TNG. I have to realize the majority loves TNG, and if TNG isn't bringing in enough money, there's no way DS9 or Voyager will.

Unfortunately the only two Trek series I feel non-fans and casual viewers will enjoy is TOS and TNG. I think you have to be more of a hardcore fan to enjoy DS9, Voyager and ENT.

But the problem was even the hardcore fans got to where they weren't liking Voyager and with Enterprise, while I love this series as well, it definitely has it's flaws.

First off, I don't think anyone was happy about the idea of prequel. This had already been done with Star Wars, and from what I understand, the Star Wars fans really don't like the prequel triology.

I think Enterprise caused alot of continuity issues. You can tell the writers really did try to their best to make everything fit well. However, what doesn't fit is that, there was never any mention to an Enterprise NX-01. There was never any mention to the Xindi prior to Enterprise.

You come across issues like these when doing a prequel. It's extremely easy to make mistakes.

Honestly, I think if they just would've set Enterprise post Voyager, or post Nemesis. Maybe have the show set in the 25th Century, and then have the same cast, same uniforms, same everything really. I think the show would've been more successful. What nobody seems to realize is that, Trekkie's are very passionate about Star Trek, and we can also be quite nit-picky. We will go out of our way, to try to find something wrong, just to make sure it was done right. And man if it wasn't done right you're going to have a fight on your hands.

And plus in later series, TNG, DS9 and Voyager, anytime there's mention to the first Enterprise, it's always Kirk, and the NCC 1701. There's never any mention to a Captain Archer on the NX-01. And with the things we see him do, there definitely would've been mention of him in the history books.

So bottom line is, doing prequels are a bad idea in general. Too many fans will get hung up on everything that's wrong with it, and the casual fans and non-fans don't care and aren't watching it anyway because it's not TNG.

I don't agree. I thought a prequil was a brilliant idea. The burgandy jumpsuit trek had been done to death and would have declined in ratings just as fast. I don't think it was executed as well as it could have been but the concept was brilliant.

I don't think there was ever any plans for a ds9 or voyager movie. Scott Bakula has said he was promised they were the crew that would be taking over the movie franchise.

Well honestly that makes sense as well. Because I suppose it's hard to do a film about a Space Station. Especially since the Dominion War was finished. And also hard to do a film about a ship trying to get home, which did get home in the end. And people think Voyager's finale was rushed, but I've been watching Season 7 of Voyager lately, and I don't think it's rushed, I think they used alot of Season 7 to wrap up the main story. And then by the final episode, alot of the loose ends, had already been tied. But anyway, I totally strayed off topic there. But I agree it would've made sense for Enterprise to have a film. But since it didn't do well on tv, there's no way a theatrical film would've been successful.

LOL!

It's strange, being a catalyst for things that move outside.

In pratice think going movie DS9, Enterpise and Voyager all together in Yesterday Enterpise timeline. Main stars of Yesterday Enterpise end up Nexis. Wormhole aliens get them out of there to help change tide war UFP favor in return Sisko be Bajor people topic religon leader.

This idea is fanboyishly awful.

I like the Idea of a New Series set in post 'Reboot' 24th century. But not featuring a 'regular' cast. Instead it would be episodes set in the Trek Universe. Sories would still be somewhat linear, but just feature different crews, and ships each week. You could still have former Cast members from previous series doing Cameos...

I'm baffled by this thread still rolling along. Surely the point is this. If a large swathe of actual Star Trek fans wouldn't bother going to see movies related to DS9, VOY or ENT and also think it is a dreadful idea to even consider them - then what possible interest would non-Star Trek fans have? It is not Star Trek fans per se who want to see motion pictures featuring Sisko, Janeway or Archer - it is DS9, VOY and ENT fans. They are sub-groups. Perhaps if 100% of Trek fans worldwide wanted to see these spin-off series given the big-screen treatment they might have a slightly better chance (but only slightly); but seeing as a good percentage of Trekkers actively deplore the idea (as something that might kill the good name of Trek stone dead) then seriously I ask you, who really gives them better chances than 1,000,000-1 against?


The original Star Wars films were brilliant (and remain so). They were deservedly big box-office draws. The latterday prequel trilogy which let's face it, weren't nearly as good, were still big draws in the movie theatres. If Lucas ever decides to finish off his (original) 9 part story with a sequel trilogy (as I believe and hope he should / but accept he probably won't) about the later days of Luke, Leia and Han - then I reckon there would still be tremendous interest. When you consider that Harrison Ford is such a huge star, he would probably be enough to guarantee good bums-on-seats figures. And these guys are the right age now to play older versions of their screen characters, so there is some mileage there. If such films were to be made I would love to see that happen.


Now, I happen to be a much bigger Star Trek fan than I am a Star Wars fan. And yet, not only could I see the value of reactiviating Lucas's saga, and its commercial potential - but I would also far rather see something like that happen than some weak, second rate sub-Star Trek offering with Janeway and Voyager, or any of the other spin offs now ST:TNG is finished as a movie entity.


Honestly. Nobody but nobody but nobody - except a few dozen DS9, VOY or ENT fans on this forum want to see such things happen as Hollywood waste its rather scarce (these days) dollars on pointless ventures that would lose them an absolute fortune ... and possibly/probably make Star Trek into a laughing stock.
