Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

I would love to see a VOY movie...the only character I could not handle seeing a dif actor play would be Janeway. However, I think I'd like to see Voyager in a different, new story, as in, not a retelling of the series.

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.
But isn't a different actor playing the part the same as, say, the different interpretations we already get of the characters in the novels? No two writers see them the same. I've read about Spocks who hide raging emotions behind a veil of calm, and ones who barely remember what feelings are like.

Heck, no two Voyager TV writers wrote Janeway the same, and it showed!

Well this is the best selling point for a Voyager movie. A good chance of Janeway being able to act consistently for two hours straight.

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

I'd love to watch a Voyager movie. But I'd prefer a new story. And about the cast? Let's be realistic: characters like Kim, Kes, Neelix and Chakotay will be comparatively small roles again if the writers are the same as for the tv show. So I wouldn't mind the same actors...

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

Have you seen these people nowadays? Some recasting is definitely in order. Unless they are all playing Admirals.. a ship full of Admirals. Except Kim of course.

Picardo, he could still be the EMH. He looks great and there's all kinds of reasons he cold be older looking. Perhaps he wants to keep up with an older lover, or more likely he gets it into his subroutines that he'll get more respect that way.

Sure.

Outside of Picardo and Russ, the acting couldn't be any worse.

Agreed. I love to watch and compare multiple versions of the same story; in a way, it adds to the viewing experience and gives you more to mull over afterwards. It's interesting to see how the same stories and characters are interpreted by different actors, and in different eras. I mean, just compare the Disney version of DR. SYN to the Hammer Films version with Peter Cushing. You'd never know they were based on the same source material!

I guess, in a way, it depends on whether you want to focus on the plot or the aesthetics/execution.

An odd comparison: Is anyone else watching HOT SET on Syfy? One of things I find fascinating about the show is how they can give the same script and setup to two different production designers, who usually end up going in completely different directions when it comes to visualizing the scene.

It's the same sort of thing. Here's VOYAGER (or whatever). What else can you do with this raw material?

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

I don't know about trying to tell the whole story of voyager in one movie. I just don't think it would work. There are basically three possibilities.
AU prequel, like nutrek. They do the starting off thing, but its in a different universe so it is different.
A long episode. The movie takes place during the seven years they are lost, and its like the two part episodes, only more movie-ish.
An after movie. It takes place after they get home, and probably something happens and the universe conspires to bring the crew back together to save the day.

Personally, I like the first. It would be cool to see how it woul work with different interpretations of the same characters

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

I like the first too. Redoing Caretaker as AU. OR redoing it as NuBSG where you really step outside of the Trek box. I'm kind of suspecting something like that (but not with VOY) will happen in the next ten years. The lack of dark violent sexy grit in Trek will be seen as a deficit to be fixed.

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

I still wouldn't want a Voyager-as-exists remake. But x years/decades down the line, I wouldn't be averse to a JJ-flavour reboot. That would give it enough time to look and feel completely fresh.

It's not the same thing. When I read one of my beloved Voyager books, I can "see" the characters from the TV series. I also manage to sort out the contradictions which can be found in some books.

If I have to watch a re-booted Voyager movie or series, then the whole thing is ruined for me because what I see on screen will not be the Voyager characters as I imagine them.

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

But wouldn't you love to see Richard Gere and Julia Roberts up on the screen together again?

Rick has always seemed a to have near illuminant degree of burnt sienna complexion, so he could fake being native American easily.

Good lord! Imagine Julia's Bun!

It would be like a basketball glued to her crown.

(Sandra Bullock and Hugh grant?)

Re: Voyager rebooted as a movie

At least you didn't say Hugh Grant and Meg Ryan.

Not that the suggestions you give aren't execrable, it's just possible to actually do worse.
