Voyager rebooted as a movie
 
I was thinking of the Lost In Space movie from 1998, and that Voyager could be given a similar reboot telling a quick version of their whole story in about two hours.

Voyager gets stranded across the galaxy in persuit of a Maquis ship. They pick up Neelix, they liberate a sexy Borg drone and get home, all while learning to work alongside their former rivals the Maquis.

If such a movie were ever made (not likely I know, but this is just a bit of fun), would you be interested?

In playing a starring role in it? Yes.

Oh and to answer seriously.. is JJ doing this movie?!?!

Ok, spill it. Which big time actress are you, teacake??

I didn't give any thought to who would direct, or continuity or anything like that. I imagined it as a totally stand-alone movie.

I'm secretly Polly Walker. Remember that long gap when I wasn't posting on the forum? That was my Caprica year.

And yes I would love to watch a stand alone VOY movie because "I would love to watch" is my answer to any new Trek question. Casting would be crucial though.. more crucial to me than the reboot casting was when I first heard about it. But I'm sure it could be done and not just done but improved upon. I've never been a fan of Beltran's acting and I'd love to see Chakotay given the punch so many wanted out of the character with better, smouldering, attractive acting.

OMG. Can we have Matt Smith as the EMH??

You will work around his work on Doctor Who or else.

This will, of course, be after he regenerates.

Well, I'm not hungry, so if you have the plumbs to pluck it off, you're more than welcome to whatever feast you can gather off my chin.

Never trust a dude who can rap his hose around his waist and stick it in his ear.

So far this morning, VOY is winning the movie contest (43%):

Could they not pick up Kes and not Neelix? Then maybe have Harry KIA during transit or by the Caretaker? :lol:

It would be an interesting idea, though not sure how you could fit in everything to a two hour film, which may mean (shock and horror) that Seven would have to be left out!

Who would you want cast in the roles though? How might they differ from their series versions?

Maybe I just "don't get it" but I never understood the popular desire for reboots and retellings of the same stories? I'd rather see something new and original that I don't have preconceived notions of and might not be able to guess how it ends right away.

No, no, no!
And no again!

I sincerely hope that I never have to see Voyager rebooted as a movie. The thought of seeing other actors than Mulgrew, Lien, Beltran and the others is totally out of the question for me.
