This is more of a thought than a question, but I've always wondered why they didn't utilize some of the TNG era TV shows to set up movies. Granted, you probably couldn't do that with Voyager, but it would have been a nice intro to, let's say First Contact. What I pictured is the most current, at the time, episode of DS9 before the release of First Contact have a scene or two where let's say Sisko talks about the coming Borg threat in which he sends Worf and O'Brien in the Defiant to help fight the Borg and you see them leave, and then that's it. The action would pick back up when it does on First Contact. And then the DS9 episode right after the First Contact release has them maybe being towed back to DS9 and there to be a few scenes regarding the battle. Same with DS9 and Insurrection. You'd be giving a little bit of info that wouldn't ruin the movie. I mean I think it's safe to say that we all knew the Borg would be in First Contact before it was even released so you're not ruining anything about the movie, plus I think it gives a much smoother flow and explains Worf's appearances in the movies much better. And for the record, O'Brien should have been in a least one movie only it it was a cameo. I think he earned that. What do all of you think?
I just watched First Contact, the episode, and I thought that it would have made a good jumping off spot for a movie. I would have loved to see how things changed for them a few years later. It would have been interesting to explore.
