DS9 isn't suited to a movie. It's too complex to shorten to two hours.

All other Trek besides DS9 has been self-contained episodes because they were designed to run in syndication. DS9, with it's long story arcs and character development wouldn't be suited for a film.

There could be a movie, but it would take some effort to do something good.

There probably won't be a movie. And maybe there shouldn't be a movie.

But if there was, then it would probably be some kind of follow up to the end of the Dominion War.

Well, they wrapped it up for sure, but whether it was all good is another matter (the entire Pah-wraiths storyline = ).

Well, the pah-wraiths were a counterpoint to the celestial temple dwellers. I thought they fit well into the overall Bajoran storyline.

They had their Prophets and their False Prophets and, as one would expect, the celestial temple was a major part of that.

It also makes sense than in a show where there was a great deal of grey areas in terms of who was good, bad or both, that the Prophets had the same problem.

I thought it tied the Bajoran storyline into the human storyline not too badly.

I also liked that storyline in the end. It showed Winn's true side, i.e. that she is not merely powerhungry but that she does not believe at all in the Prophets, in an epic way and brought the two main villains and the protagonist of the show together.
