    Cool, and thank you for the info. However, I'm sure this post is destined to be moved to the Movies section!

    Glad I saw this here. I rarely read any other part of the HTF other than the Software section. I am excited about this movie.

    Other than for box office performance why would Paramount wish to kill off this series of films? TOS produced 6 movies, it seems a bit early to quit on TNG movie series. Are the actors getting too expensive? Maybe we can have some DS 9 &/or Voyager films if Stewart & Spiner cost too much.[​IMG]

    Dan provided a very accurate summary. If you want more details, including spoilers, do a search for Star Trek: Nemesis and a thread that I started reviewing the screenplay will show up. It does contain a synopsis of the ENTIRE film, so beware.
    I personally can't wait and predict it will be a huge success.:b

    John,
    You're on the right track with your thinking. Part of the problem is the cost of making these movies. Just like Shatner, Nimoy and Kelley before them, Stewart and Spiner are demanding a lot of money and control. You can bet that Rick Berman, the "caretaker" of all things Trek, can't be happy about that.
    Also, keep in mind that the Trek movies don't make all that much money for the studio. They make their money off the syndication rights and merchandising. When was the last time a Trek movie surpassed $100 million domestically? I'm pretty sure it was Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and that was because the storyline had much more mass appeal to the non-Trek fans.
    Berman has repeatedly said that there won't be any films with the DS9 or Voyager cast (although Kate Mulgrew does make a cameo in Nemesis as Admiral Kathryn Janeway). And there wouldn't be any films featuring Scott Bakula and the cast of Enterprise until it finishes it's series run in 2008.
    If you put all that together with what I said earlier, you could come to the conclusion that Paramount is trying to wind down the Trek movie franchise...at least for now. At the very least, they are sending us a signal that we need to support Nemesis in greater numbers than in the past.

    Hey, this will technically be an even-numbered Trek film too...

    Maybe as a stop gap Paramount will try a Trek movie un-related to ANY of the shows. If it works, fine. If not, wait for Enterprise movies.

    My wife and I would love to see a DS9 movie. We are among the minority that felt this was the best of the Trek shows. I loved TNG, but there was little character development. Through the 7 year run, all of the Enterprise folks were pretty much just like they were in the beginning. The characters really grew, developed and changed on DS9.

    Besides... I wanna see Sisko return to his wife and family!

    I wouldn't mind seeing a DS9 movie, either...I just don't think it's going to happen. Certainly, it was a better show than Voyager. And now that Terry Farrell is unemployed again, maybe she could come back somehow as Jadzia! lol

    A DS9 flick would be great. While I loved Next Generation and really liked The Original STAR TREK, of the 4 (now 5) shows, DS9 was the only one that told an EPIC story. I'd love to see that epic continue, but in reality we're probably more likely to see a TV movie than a theatrical film (and I doubt it would even get that).

    It's a shame how for many fans, DS9 is actually the best show (if you didn't give up early in the 1st/2nd season) but it gets the least respect.
