I would have loved to have seen a cameo or larger appearance of Kevin Reilly, back in the day of original series movies.
He almost made it. A ST VI publicist hosted an audience poll at a big US convention. They voted out Riley by a very narrow margin, and that's how Janice Rand returned as Sulu's communications officer. Then her lines were cut when Christian Slater was suddenly given one of her scenes: waking up Sulu.

I, for one, am very glad that Quark scene got cut!

It wouldn't have been any more silly than the boobs joke, Riker shaving his beard, or Picard doing the mambo.

No. It would have been a LOT worse.
People shave beards. I can believe that.
Even Picard realized that dancing the Mambo was wrong and he stopped.
The boobs joke...well, not too much you can say about that, but at least you can mute the sound for a few seconds.

None of them.
You don't think Kor (or maybe even Harry Mudd, if they could have found a lookalike) should have turned up on Rure Penthe in TUC?
Nope. It would have been a distraction from the story and it makes the universe feel small.

Re: Characters from the TV shows who should have appeared in the movie

I certainly don't think they should have based the film around her but I was always surprised they didn't have Selar cameo in Nemesis to get all the main cast TNG actors in there. She could easily have been one of the Romulans killed at the start.

I suppose she could even have taken the rather thankless "Romulan who changes sides and turns up at the battle to contribute nothing" role.

It would have explained why people couldn't just have gone to the opposite side of the planet from the Baku, and stayed at a health resort.

I kind of wish they had brought back the villian from "Space Seed" - what was his name again? I bet they could have built a pretty decent movie about him.

Re: Characters from the TV shows who should have appeared in the movie

^Who, John Harrison?

I vote Sela, even if just to be one of the Rommies killed in NEM (it would have been a nice way of getting all the original TNG cast back onscreen for their last outing), while Tomalak could have been on Donatra's ship.

I don't particularly care for Lore but he might have made more sense in NEM than B/4.

Kang, Koloth or Kor ought to have been in TUC and/ or TSFS.

There really should have been a Q movie.
I consider "All Good Things" to be the Q movie. It was certainly a hell of a lot better written than every single TNG film.
Yeah, this. I feel rather strongly that Q would've been best left alone in his appearances in TNG (ie. ditch "Q-Less" and the Voyager episodes). There was a certain epic poem-quality to his arc in TNG. His last appearance in "All Good Things" should have been his last appearance, period. (Just as the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie should have been the last one, period.) After that, it would've felt cheap.

And "All Good Things" definitely should count as a TNG film for these purposes.

That's exactly what they should've done with Sela. Brief cameo, nothing crazy. But would've allowed a full reunion of the cast and made for a nice little continuity Easter egg.

I see your point about Lore, but I feel B-4 was a stronger character for the story. Data already went through the trauma of finding Lore, discovering that he's evil, and then eventually being forced to deactivate (kill) him. That was a great character arc, and it would've been cheapened by bringing him back in NEM. Also, keeping B-4 allowed an implicit parallel with the Lore arc: Data finds a brother and is eventually forced to deactivate him, but for different reasons. Also, knowing Soong made more than two functioning androids increasing the mystery, and I like that.

Please tell me you meant Sela and not Selar! I don't want Dr. Selar to turn out to be a Romulan or to get killed!

Well, they did this ripoff of "Nemesis" with Judson Scott in it...


Personally I'm still trying to decide whether Bob Picardo's scene in "First Contact" counts as a character appearance.

Kang was retrofitted into TUC via "Flashback" (VOY).

Re: Characters from the TV shows who should have appeared in the movie

I was disappointed they didn't take a rather obvious move and have O'brien on the Defiant with Worf during First Contact. As long as he was with the TNG crew, he deserved being in at least one of the movies.

It's the twist no one would have seen coming! Or my cock up.

Agreed on an O'Brien cameo somewhere would have been nice. Having a whisky at Riker's wedding would have been cool.

Re: Characters from the TV shows who should have appeared in the movie

I would've dropped Denise Crosby into the background of one of the Enterprise scenes in a Starfleet uniform with the Tasha Yar haircut. No lines.

Fandom would've imploded.
