(I'll do a TNG with the DS9 crew later) What if in some parallel universe DS9 happed with the TNG crew/characters? Picard is the Emissary of the Prophets Ro Laren is the Bajoran Liaison Data is the Science Officer (Maybe his creator was a Trill and he's a "joined" android.) La Forge is Chief of Operations Crusher is in the Infirmary. As are Selar, Ogawa, and the Bajoran female nurses from the early seasons Jabara and Tagana. I haven't thought about Pulaski yet. ...and Simon Tarses . Worf is Chief of Security (Do we move him to Ops or is he more of an investigator extraordinaire on the Promenade?). I don't know if I like him as a loner or if he's raising Alexander on the station (Jake). Guinan runs Guinan's on the Promenade Instead of having the same extended cast, I'm thinking we rework things a bit. When the wormhole was discovered, the Romulans (magically closer to Bajor and the Cardassian border) flex their muscle and become the main baddies. Tomalak is the baddie (Dukat) Sela is his second (Damar) Mid-series, when the Romulans go too far and are nearly conquered by a the Federation-Klingon alliance, they make a devil's bargain with the Borg (Weyoun) and ultimately have to deal with the Borg Queen (Founder). ...I'm seeing Tomalak (who made the initial overtures to the Borg) betrayed by Pardek (et tu, Brute?) and murdered by Sela as she's voluntarily half-assimilated and becomes the go-between between the Queen and Pro-Consul Neral. Kurn rises to prominence after the war and becomes the general in charge of the Klingon forces near the station (Martok). Vash shows up like Cassidy Yates from time to time, but here Picard and Crusher do have the serialized format(?) to get together. Moriarty is a sentient hologram (Vic Fontaine) who refuses to be shut off again, and strikes a deal to make fun (though sometimes dangerous) experiences for his guests (Quark-ish). The Cardassians are still around and we occasionally see Guls Evek, Ocett, Lemec, Madred, and...Macet . Also included are the four younger characters from "Lower Decks." Maybe Sito Jaxa is the Hand of Worf, playing Good Cop when dealing with Bajorans. Or maybe she's in longterm undercover for him, but no one knows but him. O'Brien I kind of don't want to play with too much for obvious reasons. But maybe it'd be fun if he were transporter chief (maybe in a large Cardassian Grand Central transporter room on the Promenade) in exactly one episode where there's an accident, and they go to the Mirror Universe. They discover evil/good versions of them all, and he stays to lead the Resistance or something. Or because Molly got lost. Or because his Mirror self died and he needed to finish the mission. Or... Anyone want to take a stab at the other characters not listed?
