^ Some might assume they lost their saucers in an earlier battle.
As CGI was becoming more widespread, it would not have been terribly difficult to show one of the ships conducting a saucer-separation. Alternatively, Sisko or Martok could have given an order such as, "Have USS Venture conduct saucer-separation as planned," with the drive section later appearing on its own.
A movie. Instead of Insurrection.
i heard that the gorn hegenomy allied with the domininon axis;that would be cool to see there ships or for example see them on ar-558 ,and the war from romulan point of view
Not exactly. They were among a few races beofre the war that signed a non-aggression pact with the Dominion.
I wish they had shown the planet Betazed getting captured by the Dominion, instead of just telling about it. That should have been of great importance.
Fun fact: The original plan was to have Vulcan conquered but it was felt that Vulcan was too prominent a planet to be lost off screen with just a line of dialogue mentioning it. Betazed was chosen since it being Deanna Troi's home would give it resonance to fans but was obscure enough to get away with an off screnn loss.
I believe that was in the novelization somewhere. I heard that before too.
A similar idea was thrown around about Spock dying (during TNG and DS9), but it was decided that such an universally popular character was too important to kill off-screen.
Less Flash Gordon-y space battles. The same old models packed way too close, without shield bubbles or moving or firing enough. They could have done better and more realistically with fewer ships on screen and lots more weapons aglow in the background.
More variety of ship too. Transports, ships from the E-C era... Don't go all-out-war if you can't show it right. Earlier series were smarter in this way.
They could have made it Trill had fallen to the Dominion, then had the Defiant lead the mission to retake the planet.
Most likely you remember hearing it in the episode it was mentioned in, A Call to Arms, which wasn't novelized.
Indeed, such a mention was originally going to be in Face of the Enemy.
if they had done it though it would have made the premise of Abrams' film impossible.
They could have just said he faked his own death. The reports of his death where wrong etc..
