Maybe if they release it on blu-ray?

I guess I'd just like to see an updated final episode with better effects shots for the battle... But while they're at it, perhaps they could just shoot a two-part sequel story so we can see what happens next.

Or.. they could make a new series called: Star Trek - the Colm Meany-Micheal Dorn-Jeffery Combs Show

"Call to Arms" the build up, visual effects and the music where perfect.

btw all the battles where filmed with models until Sacrife of Angels.

in of the later battles all the ships (miranda, excelsior and galaxy ships) where the same size. thats was a real turn off. anyway.

Post Hands down...Sacrifice of Angels

When the Feds go to retake DS9, and they have a wall of Dominion and Cardy ships in their way, some of the best original battle sequences ever are in those few minutes. And when the Klingons come into the mix, it just adds to the excitement.

The finale episode could have been better if two things had happened...
1. They had put more into the sequences.
2. They had not re-used a loop where a Klingon ship exterior/interior was destroyed by a Jem'Hadar ship crashing into it.

A lot of "What You Leave Behind" was rehashed from previous big battles - could have been so much better with all new action. Just watch Shattered Mirror to see just what the Defiant class is capable of...

True, suppose.

Mind you, the big battle sequences are not what I particularly take away from "What you Leave Behind" -- rather, it's the sort of bittersweet stuff of everyone parting.

The battle scenes are sometimes really just a lot of flashing lights and noise.

Sacrifice of Angels was the worse sequence I had ever in my life...
what I do remember that was a good sequence that stunned me was The Search when Defiant had fired for the first time... I was blown away and so was that Dominion ship.

I had never seen a federation ship fire like that...and the fire power was unbelievale...

the episode was loosly based on the Battle of Guadacanal

and some of the characters were named after characters and cast of "Hell Is for Heroes."
