There’s a lot of people who want to see the new and old Star Trek. We have plenty of new stories being told, with new characters, and there’s a lot of people still who want to see their favorites get a new chapter in their story. So it’s not that surprising that Trek culture named four characters that many fans want to see a return to the universe.
They cover quite a few names on this list, and some are pretty obvious. We won’t spoil more than we have to, though it’s hard to say we totally agree with who number one was. Yet, the four names we have on this list have the most to offer as far as a storytelling narrative.
They’re the ones that offer a bigger look at not just their specific characters, but the impact on those around them.
The four we’d like to see more of
The idea of seeing more Garek is enticing. He’s a very likable, but mysterious man. A series that featured him helping rebuild the Cardassian Empire would be riveting, especially if it put him at odds with his old friend Julian Bashir.
While many have pitched the idea of Worf returning to the Klingon Empire at some point to take over leadership, a far more intriguing idea would be Worf becoming an Admiral in Starfleet, while tensions with the Klingons begin rising. Seeing a series built around how Worf navigates the situation would be very poignant.
We’ve mentioned that we’d like to see both him and another character on this list appear in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, but a better idea would be to have Archer join up with the Temporal Agency that Daniels of Enterprise fame was apart of, and go around upholding the Temporal Accord. This idea would ensure that Archer can interact with anyone he wants in the Trek canon. That alone opens this up to an impressive array of ideas.
Really, T’Pol fits in just about any scenario. She could guest-star or become a recurring player on Strange New Worlds, she could join Archer on his show, or ViacomCBS could have her in her own Vulcan-centric series. It wouldn’t be a very long series if it’s dealing with Vulcan culture but it could be a great two-season mini-series.
