To those who would like an actual DS9 movie (not just a recycling of its elements, as I suggested): what story do you think would hold up cinematically? With the prime threats to Bajor defeated (Dominion and Cardassia), the show should return to a relationship between the station, the planet and its people. The only thing that I can think of is a Bajoran Civil War. It wouldn't be based on creating a new external threat (as most ST movies do). It would get down to the nitty gritty of politics and employ the slow, messy approach to storytelling that characterized the series. Perhaps I'm not seeing something, but I would role my eyes if, suddenly, a new power threatened the planet or some palukoo-seeking probe appeared at the mouth of the wormhole.
The villains would be the Dominion again the story could be that the Dominion has come back and is planing to invade the alpha quadrant as a result of this Sisco comes back to save the day again.
