Star Trek: Voyager fans have wanted a movie since the series ended in 2001.
So far, only Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation added movies after the series run of the shows. The Next Generation was also continued in Star Trek: Picard. And while Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and Admiral Janeway, along with Chakotay (Robert Beltran) from Voyager have returned to Star Trek: Prodigy in animation form, we have yet to see the entire crew back together. While we’ve got a documentary on the way, that’s not quite the same as a movie that puts the entire crew back on the Voyager bridge. Fans just want something more, and it turns out, Mulgrew doesn’t think it’s a bad idea at all.
At New York Comic Con, a Collider writer asked Mulgrew her thoughts on a Voyager movie.
"I think a Voyager movie would be fun, and I think you’re not alone in wanting to see that. I mean, this group, this crew was of terrific significance to thousands of people. So, I think to bring them together again, a little older, a little wiser, and a little saucier? That could be nothing short of very fun."
Star Trek: Voyager left an indelible mark on science fiction.
Along with Mulgrew being the first female captain of a starship on Star Trek, Voyager had a diverse cast, a unique concept with a ship and its crew being stranded 75 years away from home, and the introduction of new aliens never encountered before on a Star Trek series. And we certainly can’t forget the holographic doctor portrayed by Robert Picardo and then an ex-Borg drone who became part of the crew as well.
It’s no wonder fans got attached to this series and the crew. They were all different and brought something special to their characters and the series. When it ended, we didn’t get to see the actual arrival of Voyager on Earth. We still don’t know what happened to some of the crew members. And we have to agree with Mulgrew. A Voyager movie could be fun, but if a live-action Janeway series is being considered, such a film could set up Janeway’s return and let us know if any of the crew will be part of that series.
