Re: DS9 deserved a movie

I'm not sure DS9 "deserved" a movie; true, if one had been made, I'm sure it would have been glorious, but the storyline of the show really didn't require one. DS9 was such an arc-linked show that I think TV really was the best medium for it.

Did Ezri do something she got slapped down for? I've only seen that season once, so I don't remember.

While the mission itself may have been critical, the specific juncture at which the conversation came up didn't seem especially crucial.

Besides, it's nothing we haven't seen before, with Worf and Jadzia perhaps as the pinnacle of unprofessionalism.
The specific juncture doesn't matter. It was still really unprofessional.
It was still a great way for Kirk to learn NOT to be a complete gonadal horndog, and from his future girlfriend.

And no, I'm not excusing Worf and Jadzia. What they did was wrong, and deserved to get slapped down for it.
Hey, they were in love, weren't they?

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

As Sisko himself noted, that's exactly why they shouldn't have been sent on missions unaccompanied. They proved they couldn't be trusted to act professional, to the point where it likely cost a large number of lives.

You are talking about two separate incidents. The one you initially quoted is in reference to nuUhura bitching at nuSpock and telling her own captain to shut up while she kept on bitching, and you are confusing that with the nuKirk/nuCarol underwear scene.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

My feeling of the Prophets is when they interact with our plane of existence they become effectively linear for the duration. But the linearity as that contact is not the same linearity that we experience it in. From the Prophets' perspective all the linear contact they ever had with linear beings happened together at the same time, so they were learning about linearity from Sisko at the same time they were sending one of theirs to Sarah to generate him.

I also get the feeling the Prophets have their own principle of limited interference with corporeal life. They're obnoxiously cryptic not just to be dicks to corporeals, but because it's the maximum they feel justified in guidance. The only exceptions are minor acts of kindness (The poet), their perception of justice (The nagus), and acts of desperation to protect Bajor and Sisko's destiny (The fleet).

Also, if they had told Sisko what to do immediately, the free pah'wraiths that possessed Jake, Dukat and Keiko would have been free to make more attempts to destroy them.

Star Trek deserved a movie after "Nemesis". May be crossover TNG&DS9. TOS worked better as Motion Pictures, TNG worked better as episodes. What about DS9? Who knows.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

While I love DS9, I don't think a movie would have worked.

The biggest problem is that unlike the Enterprise, a movie would have to explain DS9 more throughly than was ever the case for either TOS or TNG. Hell Emissary required a crawl to set the stage for the series (as did Voyager).

Even the novels required several books to properly relaunch the series. That's more than a 2 hour movie can provide.

Note that even JMS' idea for a Babylon 5 movie would not have focused on the station.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

Thinking about it, a DS9 movie would be great to do a very different kind of Trek film. Rather than flying off into an adventure or saving planets, it could be more of a thriller with the stationary setting and darker tone of the series.

For example, it could start off with a voice over done by Avery Brooks (maybe with a few flashbacks), giving a brief introduction to the station and major events. When it gets to the present, it is from the perspective of a new Security Chief (the audiences POV throughout) just arriving at the station, as it prepares for a major conference. However, an assassination occurs onboard that threatens the stability of the region or AQ/GQ relations (whatever the conference was about). So it falls to newbie, Bashir and Dax to hunt down the killer, as Kira faces hostiles from every direction. Jake, Nog and Quark would also have their own parts to play, not sure what just yet though. However things go, it could end with the hint of The Sisko's return (and possible sequel ).

Studies have shown that movies that begin with voice overs bomb at the box office. Like Iron Man 3, Avatar or The Fellowship of the Ring.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

A decent scriptwriter would not have to rely on a "previously on" text crawl or voiceover for new audiences. There are ways to do that during the narrative.
