^There were many TNG characters (and species) that should have been revisited.

Re: Small things you'd've liked to've happened in TNG

Some things that we only saw with the E in the movies, that were established to be on the D...spacesuits (Why did they never use these to buy extra time when life support was failing?), warp core ejection (never worked when they could have used it), captain's yacht, escape pods....

Not to mention the inside of the main shuttlebay and cetaceans, which we never, ever saw.

I would have liked it if during the Enterprise's one and only visit to DS9 (not counting the DS9 pilot) that they had actually done a proper crossover story instead of just using the station as a backdrop and giving us just some minor interaction between Data and Bashir.

Why would you want to see the inside of cetaceans?

Count me as another who would have loved to have seen the Captain's Yacht in use. A proper TNG/DS9 crossover would have been great too.

Re: Small things you'd've liked to've happened in TNG

Instead of Lower Decks as aired, I think it would have been cool to have the characters be the background actors we already see so often on the ship.

Guy Vardaman, Randy Pflug, Lorine Mendell, Tracey Lee Cocco, etc.

That probably couldn't happen though. Often, stand-ins with no dialogue aren't members of SAG, so I don't think they're allowed to speak on camera.

I don't know the extras by name but I'm pretty sure I know which actors you mean. That really would have been a nice touch.

I can't speak for TheSeeker, but a PROPER crossover would feature the leads, not just a short cameo meeting of Quark, Bashir and Data.

A two part episode with Picard and Sisko. And both whole crews working together. That's my definition of proper.


A reason why I was disappointed when Worf and Jadzia Dax got married. Where the hell was the Enterprise crew?

^I say establishing their in the same universe (even if it's just Quark doing it) is a proper crossover.

And I say (believe, decree, command, preach from the mountaintops, bellow while striking my chest) that a full-fledged team-up between TNG and DS9 would have been more proper-er.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Seeing the two teams work together with mixed crew away teams and whatnot would have been great to see onscreen.

They established that with the first episode of DS9. It still wasn't a proper crossover in my opinion.

The little cameos between the two shows were neat, but I'd have loved to see a proper crossover story, with characters from both shows as the antagonist of the story.

Re: Small things you'd've liked to've happened in TNG

Yes to almost everything above. That's exactly what I meant by a proper crossover story: Maybe Sela hatches some big plot with Dukat. Picard and Sisko on the bridge of the Enterprise or at Ops on DS9. Crusher and Bashir solving some medical mystery. Data and Dax on an away mission in the Gamma Quadrant. You know...a real crossover.

Let them walk past the cetacean department while they deliver some boring expositionary dialogue.

Have a look at the main shuttle bay.

Stuff like that would have been nice and possible in a film like Generations.
MAIN SHUTTLEBAY - One of the biggest and most interesting things on the entire ship and we only got a small glimpse inside the doors in 'Cause and Effect'. I hated those low budget mini bays we kept seeing- the doors didn't remotely match the hull shape and the nacelles should have been visible at the filming angles used.
