Default Dominion War Trilogy?

Hello,

I always thought, it would have been cool to shoot a "LoR" like Trilogy about the Dominion War from the perspective of the TNG Crew, because we never saw it from their point of view!

And you could have done it really in an epic scale, but instead having thousands of Orcs you would have thousand of Starships, the attack on earth could have been shown and so on.

What´s your opinion on sth. like this?
I think it would have helped the franchise gaining a larger audience...

Too late now.

The time for a TNG/DS9/Dominion story was INS

But sadly it didn't happen.

Yeah, right, damn it, I should have come forward with this idea much earlier!

Instead of Insurrection, a story that crossed over TNG/DS9 and the war against the Dominion, would have been REAL worthy material for a movie, not the forgettable tripe we got instead. It really is a shame, but it's too late to go back now.

My understanding of DS9 is fragmented... I still watch DS9 episodes that I've never seen before, since I don't really watch it all that often... But I think it would be a good idea, since that part of DS9 was really good.

you should really get more into DS9, IMO it is the 2nd best Trek Series after TNG.you missed some really great episodes (, yet)!

But what do you think of the idea, that J.J. wants to do a Trilogy with this project he is now on (Trek)?
U think that has a chance?

As much as I like DS9 I always carry around the thought that its exactly what Gene Roddenberry didn't want Star Trek to become. Even though Insurrection and Nemesis weren't box office giants I still enjoyed both of them.

Three mistakes the TNG-era did wrong that jumbled things up in my opinion or were just primarily stunts to bring in viewers:

1. Eye candy.
2. Invent a new alien of the week and then have them display completely human characteristics with bad makeup.
3. Have a war.

The only time ''having a war'' worked, and one has to just wonder if it was a fluke was the Borg cliff-hanger across TNG seasons.

Let me preface what I say next in the best light. It employed a lot of worthy and talented people and put their kids through college and so on. I even appreciate and find many elements of the TNG era compelling, creative and surprising at times -- but in my opinion, Star Trek was always about the TOS ship and their adventures and that crew. It's the ''core'' of everything that is Star Trek.

Do we really care about Joe Bob and ''his'' Argonauts?

Do we really care what happened on the Carpathia that night? What if they had built another Titanic? Would we really care or be interested in that ship and their stories?

Time to go back to the source, un-crowd the galaxy with all the aliens of the week and tell a good story.

I don't care if the ''new'' Enterprise is a rubber raft. If there's a good story -- a story worth telling -- I'll be hooked.

Again I repeat ''no offense intended.'' I just think what is good about this upcoming vision is that it is returning the original idea. It's telling stories to a new generation whose future envisioned by creators and contributors to the original series were from a 1960s point of view. They just didn't foresee how fast the revolutions in technology were going to come, and that a post-WWII framework and sensibility just doesn't work in today's storytelling.

Today's future is different than the future of the past.
