I like that....the trouble shoot fleet.

That would explain why no other ship in space can respond to the silly ass weekly crisis when they're trying to explore.

IMO, that was something that TNG lacked. The new alien species of the week, and new planet. Some were just friggin' stupid, but others (ie A Piece of the Action) were classic.

Er... "A Piece of the Action" was a TOS episode, and TOS was the great-great-granddaddy of planet-of-the-week.

Get some of the TNG and DS9 cast (and the good VOY cast: Tuvok, The Doctor and Seven) together for a ten-hour miniseries centered around a major unresolved plot point, like the destruction of Romulus and the fallout related to that. I'm sure a lot of the actors would be happy to return.

Actors who would almost certainly return:

Jonathan Frakes
Marina Sirtis
Levar Burton
Michael Dorn
Colm Meaney
Alexander Siddig
Armin Shimmerman
Cirroc Lofton
J.G. Hertzler
Tim Russ
Jeri Ryan
Robert Picardo

All of them have either not really worked, or have been bit parts on other sci-fi (a damn shame, really) since Star Trek. They would all come back for a reasonable amount, I'm sure. The interaction between some of their characters would be great, and It would be damn cool to see a real conclusion to the TNG-era Trek.

A simple framing device of Jake Sisko writing about the fallout of the destruction of Romulus (rogue Romulan fleets attacking major Federation worlds, refugees trying to escape the Klingons, the Federation trying to keep the Klingons from annexing all of Romulan space, Romulan terrorist cells retaliating against Vulcan ala Nero, etc) while aboard the Titan would be epic.

Or, it could be epic, if they hired the right writers.

I volunteer. :wave:
