    It's a "yes," then?

    I like your idea.

    I am curious what the post Dominion War galactic order looks like; how the various powers fared and if new rivalries or alliances arose in the aftermath of the war.

    The Breen (is it singular or plural?) are intriguing. However, a big problem with the Breen is the spacesuit that they wear. If they are going to be in spacesuits all the time, I wouldn't find them to be compelling tv characters. I would want to see their eyes and their facial expressions.

    Maybe we could see more of the Tosk species and other Gamma Quadrant aliens that we haven't seen before. Btw, some of the Tosk that appeared on DS9 wore a spacesuit that was somewhat similar to the Breen. Perhaps there was an exchange of technology between the two.

    And I wouldn't mind seeing the Jem'Hadr again. I didn't grow tire of them.

    Singular and plural. I explained my reasoning for why I think their suits still work out in the thread I dedicated to the matter. Aside from that, I'd argue that we've had masked characters in both TV and Movies that have worked before, such as Darth Vader for example. If they were going to appear like the Klingons in Discovery or the Cardassians in DS9 did, constantly around for a good majority of episodes, then maybe it could end up being an issue. I think it depends on how well they're portrayed.
    Gamma Quadrant is one area I do want to have explored, although I never really figured on featuring the Jem'Hadr again. Thinking about it now though, it may be interesting to see what happened to them, since the Dominion is destroyed and they relied on the Dominion.

    Yes, it would be interesting. There are still plenty of possible story arcs that can be done with the Jem'Hadr.

    I saw "Hippocratic Oath" recently. It was a really good episode about the rogue Jem'Hadr that Bashir and O'Brien encountered. Reminded me of Hugh. What happened to him? Are there others like him? After the war, did some Jem'Hadr lose faith in the Founders and rebelled? And remember there were the Alpha Quadrant Jem'Hadr. Could there have been a civil war between the different factions after they returned to the Gamma Quadrant?

    There are possibilities.

    I like the post Dominion War reconstruction thing. All kinds of possibilities. Vulcan/Romulan unification? Romulan/Federation relations. Status of the Klingons? Visit lots of worlds hit hard by the war. Can take a federation tour. Plus all the gamma quadrant species.

    Could also take a look at how the Borg reacted to Janeway's move to get Voyager home. Or the discovery of another one of those nodes would make travel a LOT easier.

    Indeed, and after mentioning that I think I'll try to incorporate the idea at a later point. Definitely think it's worth revisiting them at a point, especially with more exploration of the Gamma Quadrant.

    Exactly my thoughts! 25+ years later, reconstruction, etc, gives so many opportunities based on where TNG, Voyager, and DS9 left things off. Not sure what I'd say just yet for Vulcan/Romulan relations, or Romulan/Federation relations, other than at least maybe some minor improvement, but Klingons I think are best fitting as solid Federation allies currently, especially due to Worf and Martok.
    Gamma Quadrant definitely has tons of possibilities, including like you said, visiting planets that suffered during the war or under the control of the Dominion, such as the new generation of people on that one planet the Dominion left with a horrible disease that Bashir found a vaccine for.

    My sister and I discussed this recently. With how popular anime and animation in general is with the same crowd that tends to like "Star Trek," it's rather odd that they haven't attempted another animated series. If there was ever a time it could be done right, it's now.

    And the best thing is that characters from TNG, DS9 and Voyager could return, since aging is far less of an issue for voice acting.
