I want Sisko in a wife-beater hitting the bars with the occasional drunken vid-call to his daughter saying "You know you are better off without me" - apart from that I'm easy.

Do a trilogy to fill the gap between the relaunch and Destiny, then stick a fork in the series. With the cast scattered like it is, I'd rather have books focusing on individual characters and their post-DS9 lives.

Based on Sisko's last appearance it wouldn't shock me to see this some day.

Re: Poll: Future of DS9 (unofficial fellow reader/writer opinions)

I'm only in the middle of Rough Beasts of Empire, but at this stage, I could very conceivably envision characters such as Sisko, Kira, and the DS9 characters aboard Aventine (Dax, Bowers, Leishman, and Dr. Tarses) showing up in future DS9 stories as supporting characters, much like the way that Janeway, Seven, and The Doctor showed up in the pre-Full Circle Voyager relaunch novels, which means that if you keep Quark, Ro, and Julian as main characters, you're only dealing with introducing between 5 or 6 new characters, which is only between 1 to 2 more new characters than were introduced in Avatar (4).

Re: Poll: Future of DS9 (unofficial fellow reader/writer opinions)

I'd like to see a mix-and-match of the 'fresh start' and 'returning crew'

Captain Ro Laren - okay, cool. I like this.

First Officer - Sam Lavelle? Maybe even play with some of the material from the TNG DW books involving him an Ro. Or even better - Thomas Riker!

CMO - Bashir, of course.

Security Chief - Lt. Commander Nog, returned from the Challenger. Quark would still be around, and it would be a fun counterpoint to have Nog filling Odo's shoes.

Ops - Chief O'Brien finally returns.

Sciences - Mixed. I'm not sure if I want Shar back, or someone new. Leaning towards someone new.

After that, a couple other new characters to fill things out wouldn't be bad. Aventine could come by for missions periodically, as could the Robinson, depending on how that story goes.

Secondly, we have seen that most of the original cast of the show, with the exception of Quark, are no longer on the station.
I'd been thinking about getting back into the Relaunch now that I've got my Kindle (I only ever read the Twist of Faith omnibus) but seeing that comment doesn't particularly entice me. How much is it DS9 if all the characters from the show have left? No offence to any of the authors who created them but the characters of Prynn, Vaughn, Ch'Thane etc just don't have the same appeal, and speaking as a Kira nut it's really sad to see she's apparently gone from central character to 'someone we might see briefly every so often'...

Kira's still a main character up until beyond the end of The Soul Key...she leaves at some point before Rough Beasts of Empire, hasn't been chronicled in the DS9-R yet though

Re: Poll: Future of DS9 (unofficial fellow reader/writer opinions)

I want to see a wrap up the Dominion story and waht happened to Odo and Lass being the new leaders of what's left of the Dominion and the Ascendant storyline. I'm halfway through Rough bests of the empire I have to say when it comes to Sisko is written he seems totally out of character of what we saw in the tv series I'd like to see a novel where he gets his act together and quits running away from his problems and to answers the mystery as to why the wormhole aliens broke off contact with him.

Re: Poll: Future of DS9 (unofficial fellow reader/writer opinions)

If I had the privilege of selecting the DS9 relaunch main cast going forward from RBoE and ZSG, it would be as follows:
Ro Laren (Commanding officer)
New character (First officer)
Prynn Tenmei
Julian Bashir (Chief medical officer)
Phillipa Matthias (Chief counselor)
New character (Chief of Operations)
Tariq Rahim (Chief science officer)
Quark (Barkeep/Ferengi ambassador)
Kira Nerys (Bajoran temple administrator/spiritual leader)

She left the station due to whatever changes and revelations happened during the business with the Ascendants. So if and when we see that, she'll be centre stage. And I'm sure she won't be swept to the side afterwards. She's changed her role; why can't the novels change their focus somewhat to keep her in the spotlight? The Ascendants story could set up all sorts of possibilities for a spiritual "quest" starring Vedek Kira. I doubt they'll sideline her; they'll just find a new focus that'll let them use her in new ways.

After 18 years, I think it's about time there was a new crew at DS9, IMO. Don't know why Bashir is still there feeling sorry for himself when he could probably easily land the CMO position on a long-range starship and get really involved in "frontier medicine."

Hey, wasn't there a new Bajoran Liaison introduced just before the big jump? Couldn't he be first officer?

ETA: Indeed, Major Cenn Desca.
