6. Guinan

Guinan is none other than the galaxy's most mysterious bartender, with a knack for serving wisdom alongside synthehol. Why does Guinan deserve her own movie? Well, for starters, she's like that intriguing book you find in an old library, worn and full of untold stories. Guinan's been around for centuries, and let's be honest, anyone who can rock the same hat for that long and still look fabulous is worth knowing more about.

Her backstory is like a treasure chest in the depths of space, just waiting to be opened. Imagine a movie that takes us through her early years, zipping across time and space, showcasing her encounters with historical figures. Did she have tea with Cleopatra? Did she give philosophical advice to Socrates? The possibilities are as endless as the universe itself.

Now, let's not forget Guinan's species, the El-Aurians, famously known as the "listeners." A movie about her origins would be a fantastic way to explore this little-known but fascinating race. I'm talking about a species that survived the Borg – that's like winning a cosmic lottery of toughness. It'd have a storyline that merges Guinan's personal journey with the broader history and culture of the El-Aurians.

How did she develop her unique perspective on life, her almost mystical intuition, and her knack for knowing exactly what to say (and what drink to serve) at the right moment? Plus, we've all seen her give Captain Picard a run for his money in the wisdom department. A solo movie could reveal how she became the sage of Ten Forward, the go-to guru for Starfleet's finest, taking us on an epic journey through time, witnessing the trials, tribulations, and triumphs that shaped this enigmatic character into the beloved figure we all can't help but adore.
