Trik: HighOnCraic: AurizenDarkstar: Neondistraction: Mugato: I dunno, they wrapped the show pretty well. I'll watch it, just keep Alex Kurtzman away from it.

True, but at the end when Sisko left to go hang out with the Prophets or whatever they mentioned that he would come back eventually.  Seems like a logical entry point to a follow-up series.

Actually, there was an interview I remember reading many years ago where Avery Brooks didn't exactly like the way it ended (in that his character was a black man leaving the rest of his family in limbo with no idea if he would actually return).  So I could see him being interested in coming back, if only for a few episodes of say a returning DS9?

I like the rough draft they did in "What We Left Behind."

demonfaerie: I still can't picture that. There was a nice peace treaty with Romulus, and the Klingons were still their allies. There was an urgency to go back to normal, but not to the point to make androids for slave labor. Data was still alive at the time, he and Picard would condemn it. Robots make much more sense to do hard labor tasks, and besides they were using holograms to do labor. It was shown in Voyager, and those holograms were going to fight for rights.


I think that what's great about that series is that it left the viewer hungry for more.  It's interesting to think about where the story goes from there--does the alliance hold together without the threat of a common enemy?  Does the secret from "In the Pale Moonlight" ever get leaked to the Romulans?  Are the Klingons ready to go back to peaceful relations with the Federation, or would they decide to attack the weakened Cardassian Union?  Is there any sort of Marshall Plan to rebuild the planets ravaged by the war?  Does a Cold War develop among the various factions?

Meant to add this

"Bashir: But the point is, if you lie all the time, nobody's going to believe you, even when you're telling the truth.
Garak: Are you sure that's the point, Doctor?
Bashir: Of course, what else could it be?
Garak: That you should never tell the same lie twice. "

What I remember hearing about it was that Sisko was originally going to be leaving and joining the Prophets permanently. Brooks objected to this, as it amounted to a black father abandoning his wife and new child. The ending was changed to add the bits about Sisko only going temporarily, and promising to return, making it less an abandonment and more going on a long term mission. I wouldn't be surprised if Brooks wasn't entirely satisfied with that compromise.


Yes, that was what I was trying to say.  But you said it much clearer than I did.

dywed88: A large portion of the federation was occupied, the bulk of the Federation, Romulan, and Klingon battlefleets had been wiped out by a weapon they had no defense against. The dominion was positioned where they could threaten earth.


I think a lot of people forget how decimating the Dominion War was for the Alpha Quadrant.  It destroyed almost 2/3 of the Federation, Romulan and Klingon fleets once all was said and done.

Couple this with Romulans infiltrating the Federation under the guise of being Vulcans, and where things ended up by Picard's time really does make sense, especially if the Romulan infiltrators had been working behind the scenes to turn the Federation against synthetic life.

Ahh yes, I remember seeing the Fark thread about that a few weeks ago. I'm not sure how well this will fly with Nickelodeon's target demo...hell, what even is their target demo these days? Are the kids even aware of Star Trek? I can't say I've watched anything on that channel in many, many years.

Ishkur: Your_Huckleberry: There was a graphic novel that set up events in the Prime Universe that led into the start of the reboot movie. I don't know how much of it is considered canon

The answer is: None of it.

Only televised stuff is canon. Everything books, comics, etc... is glorified fan fiction.

This has been Paramount's rule since the 70s.


That's probably correct, though I could have sworn that the tie in comics were different because Abrams wanted it that way or something.

COMALite J: LrdPhoenix: Jack Sabbath: Good luck. Saw him the Shatner captains documentary and Brooks is crazier than a rat in a coffee can.

Yeah, he's a bit crazy now, or at least extremely artsy.

Could work.  He has spent who knows how long in non-linear time with the prophets.  That shiat could easily fark you up from the neck up.
The late, great Dwayne McDuffie once wrote that he was eating breakfast in a Hollywood area restaurant and he barely notices out of the corner of his eye a black dad with a couple of young sons at a nearby table, until the sons started getting too rowdy.

The dad says, "You will sit down! You will eat! You will neither rip, nor run."

The voice had so much authority that, as Dwayne tells it, it reached out beyond their table and ensnared him in its spell. He fearfully looked over, and sure enough, the dad was none other than Avery Brooks. There was so much sheer authority in his voice that Dwayne was afraid to get up and leave afterwards.

"I'm still in the restaurant," he closed.


There's a reference on Memory Alpha about the first episode with Worf on DS9. Sisko is going with his Hawk look and there's a scene where he's in the room with Worf and Gen.Martoch (or was it Gowron) and Sisko totally commands the room. His presence and voice and aura always made him seem like a much physically larger person.

In the books Romulus has a Civil War. None of the books are canon, and I guess neither does the Star Trek online. None of that is going to be explored I don't think. If they did, they would have done so already in Picard, but they chose not too. Picard lost me with any new Trek for awhile. That is just me though.

dywed88: demonfaerie: dywed88: demonfaerie: dywed88: demonfaerie: clkeagle: demonfaerie: Picard did such a shiat job at explaining the regression of the Federation that I just do not give a shiat about that show anymore. I also did not like how Picard was the only person trying to help Romulans, but fail to ignore that Spock was trying to save the planet.

Your first point explains your second point. Spock was lost, then the synth rebellion happened... then nobody but Picard was willing to stick their necks out for the Romulans. Had Spock still been around, he would have been influential enough to turn the tide. Picard was obviously respected, but didn't have the same clout.

...at least I think. As you said, they didn't do very well in explaining how the Federation really changed between Voyager's return and the post-Synth rebellion world.

They didn't brought up Spock though, and if they did it was poorly done. Spock in this timeline sacrificed himself to try to save Romulus. Even thought he did not succeed in saving the planet, he did go out trying. You think his death would not be in vain. I can't picture the Federation or Vulcan be like opps Spock failed, ok byeeee. Federation ships or even Starfleet ships should not be that thinned out where they could not handle the attack on Mars, and help evacuate Romulus. From what I can remember from the 2009 Star Trek movie, when Spock failed with the red matter the planet blew up. Spock should still be alive while Picard was helping to evacuate Romulus. It also does not make sense that the gigantic Romulan Star Empire would be so weak it could not help all the people on their main planet. Not to mention relocating its people.

During TNG and Voyager they were giving rights to androids and holograms. Why would they just start creating androids to use as basically slave labor, and treat them like shiat. Picard does not take place that far into the future from Voyager to turn the Federation into such a bigoted system where they let ...


That still makes no sense to make androids for labor. Holograms were rising up, and Data was still in starfleet. It makes much more sense to create robots for labor. They are probably faster to make, and less complicated. You also do not have to deal with moral dilemmas with them. Star Trek shows really need a lore fact checker.

--Sisko is a very interesting character. If you (re)watch DS9, note that he fights like a Klingon.  He has a lot of rage and undealt-with emotion from his wife dying, and there is very little difference between alt.universe.Sisko and "our" Sisko - except our Sisko is Captain of a space station instead of a ship.  And he radiates authority.

--And I don't think Brooks is crazy, he might have been high during the doc with Shatner but he's very "jazz" inspired.  He played the villain to near perfection in the "Our Man Bashir" episode.  Come to think of it, he kind of reminds me of Commander Vimes in the Pratchett universe (played by Hugh Jackman in my headcanon.)  A decent man suppressing powerful emotions.

It's STAR TREK, genius.  There has never been a single season of all the shows that DIDN'T tackle themes of racial injustice and equality..  The show in all its incarnations has always been political.

Of all the characters, the one I think would make the best series this far removed from DS9 is Nog, but I doubt that's I'll happen now.

Considering Aron Eisenberg died over a year ago, it's extremely doubtful.

And while a great idea in 2000, I think the time is long passed for a Bashir Section 31 series.

Well, not with Bashir, anyway.

This contrasts with Abrams' handling of the Star Wars Universe, in which the EU of books, games, comics, etc... WERE canon until Abrams decided they weren't.

BullBearMS: Hobodeluxe: here's one I wish they'd bring back to finish the story.

They kind of did a version of the planned story, but in comic book form.


*spoiler alert*


Eli found a group of Ancients in stasis pods in an unexplored part of the ship.

Ishkur: Your_Huckleberry: Ishkur: Your_Huckleberry: There was a graphic novel that set up events in the Prime Universe that led into the start of the reboot movie. I don't know how much of it is considered canon

The answer is: None of it.

Only televised stuff is canon. Everything books, comics, etc... is glorified fan fiction.

This has been Paramount's rule since the 70s.

That's probably correct, though I could have sworn that the tie in comics were different because Abrams wanted it that way or something.

This contrasts with Abrams' handling of the Star Wars Universe, in which the EU of books, games, comics, etc... WERE canon until Abrams decided they weren't.

I can't put 100% blame on Abram's handling of Star Wars. Disney did not push for an outline between all three movies. Disney freaked out by the love or hate reviews of the Last Jedi. So they begged Abrams to come back to do the third. If he did the entire trilogy the hate would be either less severe or non existence. The Force Awakens was a good set up for a new trilogy. He did handled the Star Trek movies like ass though. Beyond was the only good movie out of those three. I wish all the CBS shows were in Abrams' timeline. That Star Trek universe is more action packed compared to the original. It would make sense for Discovery, and even Picard to take place in that timeline. Those shows are more action focused.

With special special effects, it's possible to have a show where Jeffrey Coombs plays every character.

Star Trek meets Orphan Black starring Jeffrey Combs. I would actually watch that.

browneye: HighOnCraic: demonfaerie: HighOnCraic: demonfaerie: I still can't picture that. There was a nice peace treaty with Romulus, and the Klingons were still their allies. There was an urgency to go back to normal, but not to the point to make androids for slave labor. Data was still alive at the time, he and Picard would condemn it. Robots make much more sense to do hard labor tasks, and besides they were using holograms to do labor. It was shown in Voyager, and those holograms were going to fight for rights.

I think that what's great about that series is that it left the viewer hungry for more.  It's interesting to think about where the story goes from there--does the alliance hold together without the threat of a common enemy?  Does the secret from "In the Pale Moonlight" ever get leaked to the Romulans?  Are the Klingons ready to go back to peaceful relations with the Federation, or would they decide to attack the weakened Cardassian Union?  Is there any sort of Marshall Plan to rebuild the planets ravaged by the war?  Does a Cold War develop among the various factions?

/Yeah, I have a side project that explores those ideas.
//No, I don't expect that it will ever get produced.
///Yeah, I will probably post the scripts online for free like hundreds of other lame fanfic writers, with no hope of making a dime.
////May the Force be with you!

In the books Romulus has a Civil War. None of the books are canon, and I guess neither does the Star Trek online. None of that is going to be explored I don't think. If they did, they would have done so already in Picard, but they chose not too. Picard lost me with any new Trek for awhile. That is just me though.

I've read some of the books, including the ones about the Typhon Pact.  But as you said, they're non-canon.  I've we're gonna idly speculate about continuing DS9 (based on specious rumors), why not wonder where the story would go?

/Again, my vote is for the story from the documentary.
//Sadly, Nog is unavailable.

I would love for a Nog show, or a miniseries. Sucks that can't happen now. Nog is such a great character. I wouldn't mind a show about Garak helping to rebuild Cardassia.

The only thing that bothers me about the DS9 reruns on the Heroes & Icons Channel is that for some reason this last incredible scene between Garek and Bashir in What You Leave Behind, Pt. 2 was edited out:

[YouTube video: Star Trek DS9 - What You Leave Behind - Garak and Bashir last scene]


Just amazing he was in only 30 some odd episodes but I always remember garak as being the one Character I always wanted to see and brought so much to his scenes

demonfaerie: Beyond was the only good movie out of those three.


None of the movies were any good.

Bslim: You know what looks like real Trek? Lower Decks. A f*cking cartoon.


Yeah, and they act like children's cartoon characters
