I wish, but it will never happen.

You know would be great about a Deep Space 9 movie? (everything!)

The fact that it would be the opposite of these new "Star Trek" films. The new "Star Trek" films are written not for Star Trek fans, but for general movie going audiences. They have no substance, and are just lights and colors with zero character, development, or even science fiction.

A Deep Space 9 movie could be a real Star Trek fans movie: science fiction, political and social thought, character development, all the things that made DS9 the red-haired child of the franchise.

My idea would be to do the one thing they forgot to complete in the series: Bajor joining the Federation. I'd love that as a premise for a DS9 big screen adventure. Remember "The Circle" 3-parter that opened season 2? That trilogy was better than all the reboot movie and all the TNG films combined.

I hope that they don't make one.

"What You Leave Behind" was perfect, IMHO. It tied up all the loose ends and left enough unanswered to leave it up to the viewer to decide.

Having Sisko return to DS9, Dukat being freed from the Fire Caves, Odo and Kira reuniting, etc., would just be anti-climatic.

A total CGI, with the actors coming back to voice their characters might be cool though, if it was set before WYLB, IMO.

The time for a movie was within a few years after the end of the show. Too much time has past, the actors have all moved on in life and so has Trek.

How many plot devices would we need to bring the crew back together after all these years and after all that has happened? I'd like to see a movie or maybe tv show with a combined crew ... some DS9, some Voyager, some new characters. DS9 (the station) would be a perfect setting, of course.

Er, no.

DS9 ended fourteen years ago. The sets, props, costumes, etc. are long gone. Nobody cares about DS9 any more (and I say that as someone who thinks DS9 was the best Trek show ever made.)

I've got a buddy who never watched Star Trek once until a couple years ago.

Liked TNG. LOVED DS9.

It's true most people don't care about 2nd-age Trek anymore, but those that do would all universally love a DS9 movie. Heck, I bet if it were possible to get the actors and one or two of the original writers, I'd personally run a Kickstarter to fund it and I bet it'd succeed.

All the same people who will watch Star Trek: Renegades would donate.

I wouldn't like to see a return of Dukat though, I'd like to see a focus on some kind of post-war Dominion relations.

Unfortunately CBS would never produce a DS9 TV movie for the relatively few people (ratings-wise speaking) that would want to see it.

You mean a kickstarter for a fan-produced DS9 movie, right? Because CBS doesn't need a kickstarter to produce a Trek series or movie.

The other problem is that maybe one or two of the original cast may be interested in doing this. Not everyone. I'm not picking on you personally, but a lot of Trek fans seem to be under the mistaken impression that all these actors are just sitting around waiting to return to the Trek series they starred in twenty years ago. They aren't.

If they go ahead with that "Captain Worf" show, they could always have guest actors from both TNG and DS9.

I'd love to see an episode in which Weyoun 9 shows up, after the clone chamber is again active, and tries to free the Female Changeling from imprisonment.

DS9 wasn't written for Star Trek fans, but for general television audiences. But many Trekkies embraced it, just like they have the new movie.

Really? I thought "The Circle" trilogy was DS9 at it's dullest. I imagine a DS9 movie would have been more along the lines of "The Way of the Warrior"

I thought that the last nine episodes of DS9 was Trek at its best.

I'm new to DS9 (bought the series back in 2011) and was up all night and into the morning watching the end of series seven. It was like lobster and steak for the mind and imagination.

No offense, but a DS9 movie would end up looking much like Star Trek 2009. With Samuel Jackson as Sisko and Kate Beckinsale as Kira.

I love when the REAL Star Trek fans come out and bash those with different tastes. IDIC and all that.

Yeah, I can totally see that. The finale was awesome and why mess that up with a movie? I know it's never going to happen regardless, but if they were going to bring back the cast for some sort of follow-up I would be lying if I were to say I wouldn't be excited! But yeah, I know it's not going to happen. Mostly I thought this dialogue was great (and I realize it was from 1994, but sorry I'm late to the game and I just found it on youtube):
Larry King: "When are you going to do a Deep Space Nine movie?"
Rick Berman: "A few years down the line."
Larry King: "These people deserve a movie, Rick!"
What?? Wow, Larry King! I was surprised he asked that question. Sounds like Rick was, too. And I think the actors were also surprised and amused! Unless one of the actors whispered that question in his ear during the commercial break! :lol:
