There have been movies with most of the Start Trek shows, but not one with Voyager. I believe Kate Mulgrew mad the BEST captain. With her acting, and direction, just the sense of family on that show. You have to get the cast back together to do at LEAST 1 Movie for Voyager! PLEASE!

The various television shows are not entitled to major motion pictures. Even TNG, which was much more successful than any other Trek incarnation on television, did not have successful films overall.


There isn't going to be a movie based on Voyager. Not only was the show not popular enough to warrent such a thing, but the story concluded in the series finale. There would be little-to-no interest.

Well, to be accurate, there have only been movies with 2 of the 5 Star Trek series; that's not "most" of them.


I've been over this several times since I've been on here; none of the crews/characters aside from TOS/TNG are going to get movie or TV spin-offs. Voyager doesn't have anywhere near the visibility of either TOS or TNG. It was a show that had a solid audience and a nice long run. Cold Case or Without a Trace aren't going to be getting movies either. Not every successfull show has to have a movie. It takes a show with a special resonance for that to happen. TOS was a very special case; Captain Kirk and Mr Spock became the biggest TV stars in the world ten years after the show was on. TNG was never that huge, but still has iconic characters (Picard, Data, and Worf are all better known to the general audience than any of the Voyager cast) and moments ("I am Locutus of Borg" Q's kangaroo court, and even "Shut up Wesley") that cause it to be seen as a "classic" show. That's not the case for Voyager. Even with TNG's TV success, only First Contact managed to get a crossover audience at the box office. Not to mention that it's been off the air for ten years (and no it's not the same thing as TOS, like I said before, TOS was a different case entirely. It became a massive cultural phenomenon with all the kids watching the afternoon reruns in syndication when they came home from school. I can't find Voyager reruns anywhere on TV.)

The main difference between TOS, TNG and Voyager (apart from their popularity) as far as movies go was that the first two did not, technically speaking, "conclude" at their conclusions. In the case of Next Gen., they knew while producing the conclusion that there would be a movie. In Voyager, the crew was aiming to get home. They got home. End of story. So unless you were to frame it like a sequel (hmmmm.....) I really don't see that it would ever happen, even from a storytelling point of view. From a sales point of view, I don't see executives picking up on that idea either, because it would really only attract a small niche market.

I've stated this in a forum where someone was talking about, "Endgame." VOY succeeded in their mission to get home. A movie would be a wonderful idea, but, and this is just a rough comparison, it would be like Gilligan's Island. They could do one of three things:


(Not like Gilligan's Island.) One last mission- return home.


(Sort of like Gilligan's Island.) A reunion trip.


(A lot like Gilligan's Island.) A trip, or, reunion (as mentioned above.) that ended in them ending up right back where they started. Other than those three, it is hard to think of an idea for a Voyager movie.


You lied? I implied.

I'm not even sure how you could do a successful Gilligan movie.

I don't know how successful it would be, but your best bet would be to do something a little like Starsky & Hutch or The Brady Bunch did with their movies. Recast (of course), have them either already on the island or just landing on the island, and make it tongue in cheek.

^^^^^^


Almost sounds familiar. Did someone try that before with a "made for tv" version or something?
