    This is certainly the best idea I saw so far in this thread!

    Some people will need a lot of time in the gym to do it. BUT.. as incredibly boring as the gym is (I assume, I've never ventured there) if you are being paid to add years to your life by exercising and you get to be in a major motion picture after conventions being your bread and butter for years wouldn't you do it? Well, I would.

    Because in the future everyone looks fabulous "25 years later".

    How would they go back and fill in the gaps with the same actors?

    I would like to see them in the future post Endgame, some kind of AU is fine with me. I don't really care about filling in the storyline as I'm satisfied with the novels but getting the crew back together and forcing them into a storyline (even though they would have scattered in their careers) they way TOS films did, that would be a wonderful thing.

    "How would they go back and fill in the gaps with the same actors?"

    mmh. Maybe flashbacks isn't a solution then. How about a court trial? They could be gathered to explain this and that incident and maybe some alien race from the DQ found its way to the AQ and accuses them of something. And as a B story you can have a look into the relationships or private matters of the main characters.

    I hate trial episodes. And even worse is when superior god like beings are judging the puny humans. It's one of my pet hates.

    I think it might be too slow a premise, the movie needs 'splosions. Admiral Janeway can just hijack a ship to go save someone, 7 of course, like Kirk was always doing.

    Reminds me of the extended footage at the end of Terminator Two where John Connor is a Senator wearing the ugliest dichromium jumper and Sarah is talking about how Michael Jackson celebrated another birthday.

    I read Watching the Clock recently, where after Endgame, temporal Investigations gets their hands on Janeway, and they're prepared to throw away the key, when the time cops we are used to, Ducane and daniels, say "let it go, it's fine, all is good" becuase their history requird Janeways selfish criminal antics to cement the foundations of thier present... Which completely reminds me of Oliver North.

    1. Well, yes, on the gym issue. :lol:

    2. In the Endgame episode, they used make-up and gray hair to age the characters appropriately. It's now 11 years since the show ended, so the actors aren't actually 25 years older themselves at this point. So depending on where they start filling in the gaps (how long after Voyager's return), they may not have to "youngify" the actors all that many years.

    I do however agree with whoever said there wouldn't be enough action with this setup. This is why I could never be a writer - I unfortunately have no talent for plotting interesting storylines. :rolleyes:

    24th century humans age slower, their life span is 3 to four time longer than our own, so lets hope that they age slower, and don't have their bodies start clapping up at 40 and then still have another 200 years till someone buries them... :)

    It's already getting that way. If you go old quick with either actual aging problems or a mindset you can spend decades like that.

    Not my seasons 1-3, if I simply ignore any reboot and pretend that it has never happened.

    But I will never be able to walk into a bookshop or do some Voyager research on the net without running into a wall of "NuVoyager" and all that comes with that, wrong looks of he characters and screwed-up events (just like the current Abrams Star Trek). Not to mention that the copy is seldom as good as the original.

    When ever I look up something Star Wars I have to hack away at all the EU with a machete. So I see your point.

    The only thing I could possible live with is an animated Voyager movie. At least the characters would look like the originals.

    But someone would probably screw up that one too, with some "Fury" crap or some NuTrek scenario.

    Voyager couldn't even keep their own run coherent and consistent so a reboot really wouldn't add to that problem and it's possible it could improve upon it.

    I always called Voyager the most disappointing of the five series. Not the worst, but most disappointing. It had the potential to be the greatest, all the basic parts were there, but they just couldn't assemble them correctly.

    Sure why not make a movie, we can have a CGI Neelix annoy us in 3-D.
