Re: DS9 deserved a movie

According to what I've heard, Syfy did a better Dune movie than the Hollywood Dune movie. Plus it has done tons of Stargate and Galactica stuff post-series. I was thinking more along those lines.

The main arc of DS9 finished and wrapped up pretty clearly but it left a lot of 'What happened next?' questions open. Like, I think it'd possibly make a great DS9/Voyager crossover miniseries if the Borg attacked the Dominion and they came to the Federation asking for help.

Think about it, first scene opens. A gem'hadar ship is hurtling toward the wormhole, heavily damaged. It seems to be behaving aggressively, so they send the Defiant out to make sure it doesn't pose a threat. When they hail it and get no response, they prepare to disable it. Suddenly, a borg sphere appears. The Defiant proceeds to attack the borg sphere. The gem'hadar ship jettisons a small escape pod, which scans show to be empty, then it sets a suicide run toward the borg sphere, which along with the Defiant's attack on it destroys it. They bring the escape pod aboard, wondering why they would send an empty escape pod, and suddenly the escape pod morphs into Odo.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

Another Borg movie would be... unfortunate. Especially after Voyager destroyed the Transwarp Network in 'Homecoming'. That seems to preclude another Borg attack in any reasonable time frame.

The DS9 movie would have to be a contrived threat ala Insurrection/Nemesis which I don't think would advance the franchise at all. Personally I don't think a movie would add anything to a very well done series. And the way action movies are done nowadays would take away from the gravitas the series had.

Now's the perfect time for a Deep Space Nine movie - starring Will and Jaden Smith and Ben and Jake Sisko!
I agree, and I think that a reboot with those two (despite the failure of After Earth-which I still want to see) would work, since Will Smith is still a powerful Afro-American film star.

This thread is turning into a spectacular example of why fans shouldn't be allowed to write movies.

TNG was a great show, but then it was followed up by three subpar and one OK movie.

TOS had what, a dozen good episodes, yet it got five good movies and one awful movie? Not bad.
TOS had 5 good movies? 2,3,4, and generations. So is the other good movie 1 or 5?
1 2 3 4 6 I would all call good. I don't consider Generations a TOS movie. Including Kirk and co dragged the movie down.

Based on what we've gotten from John Logan, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, I agree.

Compared to that, the likes of NuUhura or NuCarol really are pretty limp attempts at portraying postive female characters in Trek.
'NuUhura' and 'NuCarol' were the best versions of either character than ever existed, and as such were the reason that the two movie were a big success; there's no need for you or any other fan of DS9 to be so dismissive of either character, especially considering how Kira Nerys might not be so popular with the wider populace that's seen the two movies in theaters and on DVD (for my part, I'll always love Kira, but I don't see why she has to be elevated over Carol and Uhura-all of these ladies are competent and tough [when they need to be] in their own ways, even if Carol and Uhura seem-to some people-to be defined by their famous boyfriends.)

Speaking of Carol and Uhura, next movie they should be involved together in a mission in one part of the film where they're together in a shuttle doing something (or on their way to something ordered by Captain Kirk) and they talk about something mission specific not related to a man or their respective boyfriends.

Excuse me? Both films were successful at the box office, were critically acclaimed and popular with the general public, and worked a lot better than what John Logan came up with; the objections seem to be on your end as a butthurt fan, not anybody else in the general public.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

You assume too much about what I think. I love ST'09 and STID, but there are issues with the script, which can be linked to the fact that it was written by a couple fans. There's nothing necessarily wrong with fans writing Trek scripts, but there's a big difference between the approach outsiders like Meyer/Bennett take, and the approach Kurtzman/Orci take. ST'09/STID at times reads like fan fiction.

ST09 and STD scripts are just as bad as the Nemesis script. The execution saved them.

Re: DS9 deserved a movie

A new threat would only seem 'Contrived' if the writing was bad.

Now, fair enough, they would probably hire a bad writer for the task, but they don't have to.

The Dune/Children of Dune miniseries were spectacular in many ways, with the exception of a couple of the actors. William Hurt was worse than flat cardboard as Duke Leto. That's one way in which the Lynch movie was far superior: Jurgen Prochnow was Duke Leto - he hit every nuance of the character exactly right; it's like he stepped right out of the novel and came to life. It's a little harder to compare some of the other characters, since the miniseries had different actors for some of them. I liked Everett McGill as Stilgar better than either of the miniseries actors. But both the miniseries and the Lynch movie had problems with some of the fundamentals of the movie, such as stillsuits, and the Sardaukar still had ridiculous costumes.

Basically, both versions of Dune had their good points and bad points, and there are things that one did better than the other. The miniseries did a lot to flesh out the character of Irulan. I never thought of considering her as anything other than one of the villains until seeing how she was presented there.

Original Carol projected a tough attitude about Genesis, but honestly - how many fans tend to think of her as the mother of Kirk's only-known son, rather than as a scientist in her own right?

It is a shame that DS9 never got movie it is my favorite star trek show.Can someone please tell me why it never got a movie.i would have loved to have seen one.What could the story have been and who could have been the Villain.
Instead of the tedious "Nemesis," I would have loved a movie that included the casts of both TNG and DS9.

And while I liked "Insurrection," I felt cheated that the Dominion War was so easily dismissed in it. Really, one of the most powerful ships in Starfleet off doing duck blind and archeological missions and mediating petty disputes in the middle of a life and death war involving forces from three quadrants of the galaxy???????

Carol was very much a plot device to give Kirk an adult son that we've never known about. Her being a scientist and co-creator of Genesis was only a footnote in her role in TWOK. NuCarol won't be remembered for much other than her unnecessary underwear scene.

Uhura was never used to any full potential due to the era in which TOS was made, her mere presence was enough of an impact to many, but she showed herself to be a warm and friendly woman with strength. NuUhura has turned my favourite character of TOS into something thoroughly unpleasant. All of the new things added to her role and added screen time are all focused on her and Spock, can't think of much that isn't.

Any of the female characters on DS9 (Kira, Jadzia, Ezri, Kasidy, Winn, even Leeta) had more development and depth than any of the female characters in the latest films.

True, but that is probably due more to DS9 being a series rather than a film. The TNG women got some good scenes in the four movies, but I don't think there was much development. Sirtis' work on Nemesis (the Viceroy subplot) was quite good, but it didn't add much to the characters development. It was Violations redux. Perhaps that would be different if the focus were on one of the other series' "crews" (which were less male-heavy at the top), but I would tend to think it would be more because of the work done by the series rather than by the film itself.
