Voyager Movie?

I know this will never happen, but I really believe that a VOY movie would have been the next step also involving some of TNG & DS9.

What would you have like to have seen in a Voyager movie???

By the way...it could be easy to do with VOY/DS9/TNG involved...if TPTB had an ounce of vision they could bring in some of ENT.

Re: Voyager Movie?

Unfortunately it's been too long since the series ended. Also, more so than any other Trek series, Voyager was brought to a structured end. If the last episode had left the ship far from home, there still might be more story to tell, but if you were to made a movie, what would you make the story about?

The closest we'll ever get to a VOY movie was Dark Frontier.

Personally, I would have loved to have seen a TV Movie or miniseries which combined some characters from all the 24th Century shows, but it was never going to happen. There were some murmurings around the time First Contact was coming out that there were plans afoot for something but they very quickly disappeared again.

Re: Voyager Movie?

As for a Voyager movie, I would have liked to see a decent Kes-comeback where they could have done away with the damage made to the character in episodes like "The Gift" and "Fury".

Some years ago I often suggested a movie with characters from TNG, DS9 and Vyager involved but I'm afraid that it's to o late for that now. My first suggestion for such a movie would have included characters from all series teaming up to face a military government which had gained power over the Federation. However, many fans thought it would be a violation of all that Star Trek stands for, showing people striving for power and military coups still were existing among humans in the 24th century.

But a similar scenario could have been set for some other main threat, such as a Kelvan invasion or struggle against some new, dangerous enemy from som unknown part of space.

Or the bluegills! That would have been a possible... (or not, it nearly got koshed the first time it was suggested...)

That would have been a stupid idea, clearly, as the amount of money they would have made would have been silly. Who wants money?... clearly not Paramount in the early 2000s...

I think a story involving species 8472 would work.

It would but from my understanding, half of the cast refuse to return.

^Must be the half of the cast still working in television/film.

Actually I think they all are to some degree either before or behind the camera, except Garret Wang and Jen Lien.

Well, we all know of Beltran's open feuding.
So he's out.
Wang has said some off color remarks.
He's out.
Ryan said sge wasn't going to play Seven anymore.
She's out.
McNeil & Dawson might to busy directing & producing to return.
Possable out.
That leaves Mulgrew, Picardo, Russ & Philips.

Re: Voyager Movie?

You flash enough green they would all return. A VOY movie would probably pay just a tad bit better then some of those terrible Sci-Fi movies of the week Beltran's been doing.

I plead the 5th.

Seriously, that might not work on McNiel & Dawson.
Producers pull down a hefty some of money as it is.
You know as well as I do, Paramount wouldn't offer them THAT much to return. Not for no Voyager movie alone.

Re: Voyager Movie?

If a movie were written that had strong roles for Beltran and Wang, they'd probably return.

The story could be about some consequence from the Delta Quadrant that only Voyager could deal with.

How about a return of the Krenim and their time altering ship that causes future Janeway's shortcut home to be undone somehow and several other events turning out differently, such as Species 8472 having actually defeated the Borg and laying waste to the galaxy, including Earth.

I love the idea of a Voyager movie but am sick to death of time travel in Trek in general. That being said I think the Vaadwaur are villain that could make a fascinating comeback.

Re: Voyager Movie?

What would you have liked to have seen in a Voyager movie???
I always thought STII Wrath of Khan was awesome among the TOS & TNG ST movies because it did two things. It showed us how our fav characters had progressed since both the end of the series and the end of the "1st" movie. Even more importantly, it answered a question left hanging from the original series, what happens when you put 80 supermen & women on a primordial planet?

I want to see what happens to the Voyager crew after they returned home. Specifically, what happens 10 years after they returned. Did Seven and Chakotay
wed? Did he stay within "transporter range" of her the rest of his life? How did Janeway take their relationship when it was blooming before her and the world? Did she sit quietly aside, like the future 's Admiral Janeway did on that 23 year trip home? Did it taint her mothering of Seven? Did Seven ever figure out why?

Speaking of Mothering, did Janeway keep up with the Paris family after they returned to the Alpha quadrant and if there was a fight on Voyager over who got to be Miral's Godfather, who ended up being her GodMother? Did Tom and B'Elanna stay together, and did they have more children? Did they ship out on a Galaxy class ship so they could bring the kiddies on board, or did one of them "stay home" to play house parent?

Did Tuvok stay in Starfleet, or even remain a Tactical officer? Did Harry EVER get promoted? Or get a steady girlfriend? Once back home, was there ever any further contact with Neelix? For that matter, what about the "lower deck" characters, Ayala who said maybe 10 words in 7 years, or Nozawa who never spoke a single word? Did Tal Celes leave the service to wait tables at a nice little bistro, and did Herren ever solve his mathematical postulate or Icheb ever get to serve on a Starfleet Bridge?

That's what I want in my Voyager movie, and since I don't expect TPTB to come up with the answers, I found my own answers here. http://coffeenebula.com/cgi-bin/board.cgi?read=152021 I think that's why most of us write or make youtube videos, because we are tired of waiting for something that never came. Like the 3rd "Pretender" Movie, or the 4th season of "Lost World". Or heck, what happened at the end of Dynasty when the cave-in trapped everyone underground as the gun went off and the TV faded to black. ;-)

Oh, and while there's a writing technique involved in the fanfic that some might decry, there's also a smattering of favorite DS9 characters that might just make up for the audacity. Maybe. :-)

Re: Voyager Movie?

I think that one morning Janeway should wake up, hear a noise in her bathroom, get up to see what's going on, and find a man in the shower. The man is naked, and turns around... he smiles and says, "Good morning."

Janeway says, "Chakotay, I had the strangest dream last night... a future me from 23 years from now came back to get us home sooner and you married Seven of Nine..."


Hey, it worked for Dallas! This way, they could undo the Chakotay/Seven pairing and the whole crappy "Endgame" nonsense - and have a real end for the series!
