Why has there not been a Voyager movie? My opinion is that is the best of the series and should be.

The Voyager story was finished (they got home). There are books that follow on, but Janeway is an Admiral, Chakotay is captain, Paris is 1st officer and Tuvok is Commander to Riker.


The common consensus is that the series run itself into the ground (too much trek). My opinion is quite different, they took a backwards step and lost the imagination of viewers (viewers like me). I was 18 when Voyager ended and I had greatly enjoyed the ever expanding star trek universe, and then they moved to enterprise, which was set in the past. I immediately realised that the great exploration of a fascinating universe I had been following was over as writers were more interested in exploring “history” which I saw as a backward step that would lose all the exciting technology (imagine a star trek with transwarp drives etc!) and aliens (like The Borg!) and so I lost interest. I think a lot of people did (most fans I knew). Instead of realising this, they blamed the amount of trek on the TV (rather than admitting they screwed up with a terrible idea that lost everyone’s interest) and killed the franchise off for a "reboot". The new film is all guns and flashing lights, great, but the star trek I love died the day Voyager ended and Enterprise was hashed together - that world we all love will never be brought back and that is why there will never be a Star Trek Voyager movie (lump in throat)...

VOY was probably the weakest of the Trek shows. It really just didn't seem like they were trying very hard but rather riding out the wave of successful shows TNG and DS9. I'm in the middle of a project to go back and watch all Trek shows/movies since I never caught any of them in order. VOY proved to be a disappointment. I'm not sure there would be much of a demand within the Trek community fo ra VOY movie, so a mainstream audience is even more unlikely.


Besides, like Newkemall said above, the thing that made VOY unique from the other shows had been resolved by the last episode. IMO, the weakness of the show was that it didn't capitalize on the idea of being stranded. Most episodes could have been any other series.


BTW, I'm now in the middle of season 1 of ENT and I actually think it's pretty good so far. I didn't manage to catch much of this one when it came on and I was against the notion of a prequel at the time.

I enjoyed the way that VOY focused on alot of emotional and moral problams that a captain and crew faced rather than just alien after alien. However i feel the final episode 'end game' was rushed and did not tie up the lose ends well enough. I dont understand how you can end such an emotional star trek series in a two part episode. I dont think there should be a movie made but just a bonus episode realeased.

For the reccord, Voyager was the best show of all of them. I loved all the shows, but voyager was the best. It actually had a full story, they concluded it, it captivated the imaginiation. It was great...the studios won't make a movie or another show because they don't know which path to follow...so many people with so many opinions, but it is voyager they need to follow, that imagination, that passion, that storyline.


But who will listen to me? i'm just a fan!

IMO Voyager was an excellent series as it allowed us to learn so much about the Borg as DS9 allowed us to see the Dominion. Both of these new "bad guys" are excellent foes and these two series let us get under their skin.


I think there is still a huge hunger amongst fans to see where the Borg situation is going, especially after the distruction of their hub at the end of voyager. This was cut off when for some reason, after years of developing these exciting sories with complex and interesting species, they decided to do a prequel................


That hunger for me is still there, and I dont think it will ever be addressed now as it seems the majority of fans want to see Kirk again instead of exploring the star trek universe and going where no one has gone before...

Unfortunately, individual fan "hunger" is not the pre-requisite for how a movie gets made.


VOY was not a very broadly-successful TV series, and is largely forgotten in the current era. Even Star Trek hardcore fans are lukewarm on the series. A VOY movie, even a well written one, would fail more miserably at the box office than ST Nemesis did. So, even though it would be "nice for the fans," I think there's a greater chance of seeing Houston Astros win the World Series this year than there is of a Voyager motion picture getting green lit.

Umm... I don't think there will be a Voyager movie, I would like one but the last season didn't wow me and it ended, they got home.


So what would it be about, again I'm for it and I've read the book series following the finale so I know Voyager has story left in it but book doesn't always translate well to movie.

A crossover set after Voyager with some of TNG/DS9/Voyager characters could work, be nice to amalgamate the three series since they're chronologically in the same ballpark

Read my lips (post)- never-gonna-happen. Voyager wasn't highly rated. The actors have no desire to return. If you want new Voyager, read Kristen Beyer's books.

Or better, if you want new Voyager, read fanfic or write your own stories. Then you will be happy and don't have to deal with destruction of your favorite characters.


Who'd let that cat in here?

Yeah, I should have given up on TNG when Tasha died, Voyager when Kes died, and Abrams since Vulcan is gone. Lets write fan fiction where everyone dies in their sleep from old age. Or better yet, when they all move to the Baku planet.

Well, even that would be better than the curent Gloom and Doom Trek.


A correction, Kes never died.
