in my opinion there was too much about the Dominion war. I'd like that edited to a shorter story arc and a few open ends led to a decent conclusion.
Too much Dominion War? Pshaw! No such thing!

For example, a few episodes about Kai Opaka in exile would have been interesting, particularly with Kai Winn as a counterpart. Or if/how the shapeshifters managed to survive their disease (and why didn't Odo get infected?). What happened to the prophets? They surely didn't appreciate a war right in front of their door. Did Lwaxana and Odo stay in contact?
Hmm.. just had an idea: imagine an epi with Lwaxana and Mooghie as a team! They could easily take on the whole quadrant and make a good profit (and a lot of fun)

There are a zillion other questions that never got answered.
You do realize they wouldn't be creating NEW episodes, right?

ah, must have missed that one. Thanks, Sindatur
But that leads us to another gap I'd like to be filled:

how did Section 31 discover/develop the desease in the first place? It would require at least one changeling for researching their physiology and they could easily have used that "guinea-pig" to infect the Great Link instead of infecting Odo at the off-chance that he might one day go back to his people and infect them.
And when Odo was cured, why didn't he cure the orther Founders immediately? They'd have owed him then and the whole Dominion War could have been ended then and there.
Could Section 31 have captured a Changeling to use for "guinea pig" purposes? It's possible. We know there were a few on Earth, and possibly other Federation worlds.

As for what I'd like? Pump up the ship battle shots even more! Put MORE ships in those shots. Show different classes! (We never did see an Ambassador, since they never bothered to make a CG version).

Replace some of the stock footage they used in "What You Leave Behind", and in doing so, fix that registry number discrepancy on the new Defiant.

In fact, if they had time, they could go back and change any shots from, say, the fourth season on and change the NX to an NCC. (Too picky?)

That's basically exactly what happened. He wasn't cured until the last couple episodes, and he promised to cure the Female Changeling (And go back to the Great Link) if she stopped the war and gave herself up

DS9 currently has the exact same lo-res video transfers that TNG had. It will benefit from a remastering every bit as much as TNG has.
Actually, you're completely right, I just rewatched "Emissary" today, and I'd have to agree. It does need some work. I hadn't rewatched DS9 in so long...everything looks better in distant hindsight, doesn't it?

On a minor note, one thing I picked up on today that definitely needs attending to is this: in the scene where Sisko meets with Picard in the Enterprise's conference room, and you can see Bajor from the window, and it clearly looks like a large prop hanging just outside the window. The shadowing looks awful, and the planet looks like paper-mache.

And then it began to occur to me how much graininess in the image there was, and how "model-y" the ship models looked. It really could use some cleaning up.

It started a chain reaction in my head where every Trek episode I watched today in my personal little marathon started to look terrible. I watched TNG's "Timescape" and began to notice how much all of the actors who were supposed to be frozen in time are jiggling a little bit. If they don't fix that in the eventual remaster, it's really going to show in HD. That's when I knew I needed to take a break and go eat some Thanksgiving food.

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, that really has nothing to do with this thread. (As in, there is zero chance of them changing the story content.)
DS9 needs to be given to Lucas!!!

All this stuff could be injected into a very special remastered edition.

Re: the Bellerophon, I'm assuming you're referring to the Intrepid-class ship of that name? And the scene in "Inter Arma..." which shows that ship, but it's actually a reused scene from VOY and you can see the Voyager's registry number on it?

In the remastered remastered master we won't have that old dull beige Odo any more. EVERYTHING will be prettier.

Wow. That must be from the "Angels on Skates" episode of Charlie's Angels, when Rene was about 39.

One convention I went to, Armin Shimerman taught everyone how to pronounce Rene's last name. Unlikely I'll ever be able to use it though.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

Out of the two remaining shows, DSN would be the cheaper of the two to remaster. As it has far fewer CGI elements than VOY.

So whilst it might not sell as many units as VOY, the lower cost might counter-act that.

You've also got to consider that it might make it more attractive for networks to repeat.

Despite being one of the more critically acclaimed shows, and it topping polls (or near top) of favourite Trek shows. It is one of the ones to air less frequently.

yes, but one can always dream...
At any rate it'd be nice (though highly unlikely) if they'd darn all plot-holes properly.

If they remaster DS9 and "darn the plot holes" in the process I will be enraged.
