Certifiably Ingame is back with a new video about Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Star Trek fans rarely ever get enough of Star Trek, until recently that is. With the amount of new content coming out, plus the Star Trek Online video games, and the abundance of comics, it’d be fair to say that Star Trek fans are finally satiated.
Yet, what about the bygone era of the 90s and after? Well, there wasn’t as much abundance of Star Trek then, at least not on television or computer screens. So they supplemented their need for more Star Trek through books. Star Wars did the same thing, and the books arguably became as important to the product as anything else.
Yet, like Star Wars, which stopped recognizing those stories when Disney bought the company, Star Trek doesn’t really recognize the illustrated or written stories of Trek as canon. Yet, if you’re a fan of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and want an unofficial look at what happened to all those characters from DS9, Certifiably Ingame has broken down what happened to all of your favorite characters from Terok Nor.
Star Trek should consider doing post-Voyager, Deep Space Nine, and Enterprise movies
With the advent of streaming services and the fact that Star Trek has always been a series that made due the best they could on a tight budget (until recently), it’s entirely possible that you could bring back the casts of Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise to catch fans up on what happened to these characters after their shows ended.
These canonical adventures wouldn’t be too dissimilar from the Star Trek films of the original series or Picard, both of which further expanded on the stories and characters from their respective shows (the original series and The Next Generation).
These don’t need to be $500 million productions, nor should they be about something universe-shattering. They could simply be slice-of-life films for Voyager, the return of Sisko for DS9, or the expansion of the Federation in Enterprise.
Fans would love these and if made on a tight budget would probably be very successful.
