    Yes. And replaced by Deep Space 10, the 10th station to bear the name and hopefully shed the Deep Space name curse.

    PIC implies that Yates is running a shipping line, rather than a single freighter, by 2399. And that it's at least advertising in Boston. They might actually have offices on Earth there.

    Didn't last. They're up to Deep Space 12 by 2399 and Deep Space 253 by 3069. That's an average of about 2.7 years of existence for the Deep Space stations. Jesus Christ, talk about cursed!

    I love DS9. I love those characters. The last, and I do mean, last thing I’d like to see is them doing a continuation. Could we get a few hints, a la Kassidy and Quark? Absolutely! Keep them coming! Could an appearance by one or two of the characters be interesting? Sure. A glimpse into their lives as to what’s happening to them concurrently with Picard or Lower Decks would be wonderful (but does not appear to be in the cards for season 2 for PIC). Could they drop in hints about what’s going on with the Bajorans, the Cardassians and the Gamma Quadrant? Sign me up. But the story as it is is done and leaving it done is far more powerful than trying to pick up the story 20 some odd years later.

    Like the Silmarillion? :whistle:

    I would have said like Casablanca - DS9 closed up all the major loose ends. I don't really need to see how Cardassia or Ferenginar are doing now, or even Tom Riker. I mean, I'd buy a movie or continued series, but I'd be pleasantly surprised if the sequel were worthy of the series.

    Sisko is running the restaurant? I really thought he was committed to retiring to his property on Bajor, if he was still around.

    I don't consider it a slap in the face. Mentioning some Voyager character is kind of a big nothingburger, and it would be the same if they menioned someone from DS9. If they were going to do it right, get most of the living cast together again, with writers familiar with the whole series and a plot that makes sense and good use of the characters, that would be great. But just mention them in passing would get a "who cares" from me.

    Garak and Bashir finally get it on! Ezri is mad as hell - "How dare you cheat on ME?? You had the love life of a shy highschooler when we got together!"

    Ok, maybe I shouldn't quit my day job to write for TV...

    In a better world than this, no one had the idea of publishing an official Casablanca novel that acts both as a prequel, flashing back to explain how Rick ended up in Casablanca, and a sequel, with several of the movie's characters going on a dangerous trip to try to assassinate a prominent Nazi. Sadly, ours is not that world.

    That's not a sequel. That's the past events that build the basis for the many legends and history mentioned in the many poems in the Lord of the Rings. Actually the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings are "sorta kinda" sequels since Tolkien worked on the stories that would later be collected as the Silmarillion since he was about 18 or 19 (back then known as the Book of Lost Tales). When he wrote the Hobbit he only used his already existing stories as basically flavour to add to the story of Bilbo and the Dwarves and it wasn't until the Lord of the Rings that he truly decided that the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings are set in the same universe as his earlier legends.
    It was only published later (and after Tolkien's death) because Tolkien never finished the Silmarillion, never even got around to update most of the legendarium to the Lord of the Rings standard (he, for example never quite decided what Galadriel's role in the events of the Silmarillion should be) Christopher Tolkien had to edit decades of contradictory material together to create it.

    So NO the Silmarillion is not a "sequel" to the Lord of the Rings, it's background material, Darling.

    Tolkien actually at one point attempted to write a sequel to the Lord of the Rings, set during the reign of Aragorn's son in the Reunited Kingdom, where two guys from Minas Tirith discover a "cult" of people trying to act like Orcs. He abandoned it when he decided it would just be a "thriller" and he had no interest in writing those.

    Oh, yeah. And a prequel would not really fit for DS9.

    Very interesting about Tolkien considering writing a sequel and giving it up.

    Don't call me Darling.

    TNG and Voyager have the Borg, and they're welcome to them.

    DS9 was a closed circle story. Besides, 2 of the most important actors have passed and 2 of the most important characters were killed off. I can't imagine Brooks having any interest retconning his death or playing a ghost and it isn't DS9 without him.
