I still think DS9 needs to start 18 years from where it's left off from. That's means we can fast forward to see the longer term consequences of the Dominion war. Scrap Sisko, I mean how do you plausibly get him out of that Celestial Temple? Add 3 new characters to spice things up, keep Ezri, Kira, Bashir, Odo, O'Brian and Quark as main characters. Rom's Grand Negus so he's sitting on the highest throne/seat on the highest tower of Ferengi commerce. Let's say Garak is president of the 'democratic' Cardassian States. Admiral Ross is still an admiral. Winn's dead, Dukat's residing in hell, but let's say their's Weyoun 9. Martok's still chancellor, Worf is still an ambassador, perhaps Nog is the new chief pilot to the Defiant?

What if:
Odo and Kira got married and had children, because of some IVF/genetic wizardry on doctor Bashir's part?
Ezri became a captain.
Bashir and Ezri hate each other, because they split up along time ago
Quark doesn't change one bit? He's got to remain devious, scheming and greedy
O'Brian; is still Bashir's best friend.

And what if:
The Jem'Hader become disgruntled with the Dominion and revolt against their Founders! 'Cos the Dominion aren't fighting and attacking alien races anymore.
The Klingon Prophet Kahless returns, properly returns, to shake up Klingon society? (Let's say the spirit of Kahless returns, and resides in a Klingon who is NOT Kahless, in other words a Klingon prophet just as powerful as Kahless)
The Romulan military and Tal Shiar don't like a democratic Romulan government, possible military coup?
The Romulans and Breen worked together to attack the Federation and Klingons
There's a cold war between the Cardassians and Federation?

Think of the possibilities...

I do not believe it'd be that hard to fish Sisko out of the wormhole, get Odo out of his pond, pull Terri Farrel out of the alternate universe something terrible could happen to Ezri, and they can save the symbiont, everyone else is retrievable as well. It could all be done in the first half hour..

Well it would have to be a different alternate universe as Dax is dead in the Mirror Universe, too, if you recall...

It could be done in the first half hour, but not well -- I don't think. That would really screw up the pacing if anyone attempted all of that so quickly.

As for the Romulans, there are lots of great Romulan characters in DS9, and very individual ones, too: Vreenak, Cretak, Ruan, Subcommander T'Rul, that woman who was in the Dominion Internment Camp (371) I don't think anyone ever gave her a name except in fanfic...

So I challenge anyone who says that Romulans can't have "personality" They have very distinct personalities (Personally I like 'em better than Vulcans.)

A joint Dominion, Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Breen, Cardassian task force put together to deal with a larger scale Borg invasion on the Dominion side of the wormhole (too close to the entrance for the comfort of the alpha quadrant).
