What the hell would be in a Voyager movie? I've heard at least three people from this very forum express a desire to have one... but what would you put in it? They're home, proably on shore leave, and if they're not all split up when they return from shore leave (I think maybe one or two promotions maybe in the pipeline), they'll definitely have a new ship (proably a bigger, more advanced model so they can survive a little easier if they do manage to get dragged accross the galaxy again)... which will make the name void anyway.

So, how would you make an effective Voyager movie? What generic story line would you have? How could you stop it from being TNG with a different crew? And, more importantly, how would you stop B & B being involved :S?

I guess I would set it a little in the future, and they either test a new form of engine and try and meet up with some of the allies they made, re-establish contact with them; or some of their old enemies find them. I can't really think how they would do a 'Voyager' movie in the true sense of the series.

ROFL, i have a very plausable idea for a Voyager Movie...

Its voyagers five year aniversary of getting home, and to celebrate they take Voyager back out for a spin. During there mid-flight party they spot somthing strange on sensors and deside, in the usual starfleet way, to explore it. It turns out to be a Borg transwarp conduit thats opened, and through it came a distroyed Borg Cube. The condute stays open and Starfleet Command give the order to send in a probe. They launch it only to find at the other end the Borg are being trampled by an unknown species. Starfleet command wont settle for this threat to the Alpha Quadrent, and deside to send in the Delta Quadrent experts, Janeway and the crew of Voyager. They enter the transwarp conduit and find themselfs back in the Delta Quadrent at the edge of Borg space, 10 years from home (again huh) and they begin to investigate. They discover that a species that live in the same space as Species 8472 have launched attacks against the quadrent. Its up to Janeway and here crew to stop them and save there delta quadrent freands, there quadrent and the galaxy. Upon there way they will meet up with neelix again who will provide them with data (NOO!!!) and also meet a few of there old freands. By the time they solve it all and the main bulk of the film is done, Voyager returns home, with neelix (who has come with them for reasons) badly damaged, and possibly beyond space worthyness. It becomes a perminate mussem and the crew are off to meet there new ship, the USS Voyager-A, and then, they can leave the gap open for more voyager films :D just like The Origonal Series :D

So you see, matt_el_g, its not as inplausable as you think, and i might start writing fan fiction because that was pritty good dont you think?

Lol, considering you were campaigning against the action-based films and series they've been making lately, that would involve (insert colorful metaphore here)-loads of shooting. Seems good material for fan fiction, but maybe a little too 'Hollywood' for a movie... I like the method of getting them out into the middle of nowhere again, though; an aniversary flight seems the only real way of getting Voyager space bourne again.

Lots of ways.... Just because you or I can't think of a way, doesn't mean there is no storyline possible. You say 'without be another TNG' TNG was TOS, so Voyager, DS9 and TOS are the only original series!

But I can see your point, but its (as you say) a different crew, they are a different set of people. They would look at situations differently with different results etc. If you are look upon it in the sense that it would be the same as TNG, then you could say ALL star trek is the same, then you could even say *shudder...SW and ST are the same...*shudder!

Well sorry matt-el-g if you think you can invent such an ingenius story like that go ahed :mad:

Its not nessaseraly Violent, about 2/5ths of the move might involve the eniemy and that dosent nessaseraly mean an all-out shooting war. It could be an away mission to infiltrate the ship where more carrictor development goes on ect. Remember i left the bulk of the idea out (cause i cant be botherd *insert word here* typing) lol :D

They could make a movie set before Endgame. If they can make a completly new show, then why not an entire film. Since Voyager will be in the Delta Quadrant, it will be easier to avoid a contamination of the ST timeline due to their isolation. Such a movie could include the Borg, Species 8472, the Hirogen, the Hierarchy, Q, or the Malon (or even a combination).

Another story could be something like this: Voyager has returned home; Janeway is an admiral, Kim is something higher than ensign, some of the crew have retired, others have remained in service, and Voyager is patrolling the Neutral Zone with a new crew. The Borg Collective is cribbled, and the Romulan incident is over; peace is in the Alpha/Beta Quadrant. But then Starflet discovers that some of the surviving Borg are creating a new Collective dangerously close to Federation space. Starfleet reassembles the Voyager crew (Starfleet's Borg experts) and gives them Voyager. Their job is to gather intelligence on this new Collective while Starfleet contacts the Romulans and the Klingons. Everything is going according to plans, but suddenly the Borg raid some outlying outpost, which forces Starfleet to respond. This leads to a battle like Wolf 359/First Contact. The Federation fleet is decimated but the Borg fleet is destroyed. Now Voyager has to destroy the remaining Borg base; not all the Borg, though... (we would like to see future stories) Such a story could include Cpt. Picard in a minor role, the Borg Queen, Chancellor Martok, loads of Starfleet ships, some Borg cubes.:borg:

LMAO, jeeze, take things with a pinch of salt, don't have a cow, maaan...

It just seems kinda... OTT for a Trek movie, that's all. I think Voyager's movie debut should take a less aggressive approach, and more of an exploratory one. I mean, a war with the Borg and some race from Fluidic Space is hardly going to involve much talking, lol, the last one didn't.

TNG isn't TOS. TNG is usually refered to as like a 'stage' in the Trek universe, if you know what I mean... TOS is a completely different time, different politics, even the universe is different, that's why they're catagorised differently. DS9 and TNG follow many of the same plotlines... they both focus on the Klingon alliance to some extent, they both focus on the Cardassians to some extent, even the Bajorans... you can tell they're in the same time and place. You can almost imagine the Enterprise zooming past one of the windows... But Voyager, there was no chance of anything like that happening. Granted, they met them both there, but they were under noticably different circumstances... the closest they got to bumping into other ships from the Alpha quadrant was in those communications they kept getting. For a Voyager film to be any good, it would have to be far away, on their own, set apart from TNG universe... and this is the problem as far as I can see. When they get far away, they can do all sorts of things, there wouldn't be a problem. But the journey seems to be the problem, so far as I can see. How can they get away again without it being too cliche, repetetive, unbelievable or predictable? And again, more importantly, how would you stop B & B doing it? If they did it, a mysterious energy rift in the Badlands would drag them millions of lightyears into the Delta Quadrant, and some mysterious 'caretaker' would experiment on them trying to find someone compatable for some mysterious reason...

Darn it, Dreadnought, you sent that while I was still typing mine...

I had actually thought of that... it'd save the 'whole new way of getting lost again' problem. And the second idea sounded OK. But don't you guys think it wouldn't really be about Voyager anymore if it wasn't on its own, middle of nowhere? I like the first idea... maybe do it as a flashback?

I think that it might seem a bit repeditive if they used that storyline!

What about Voyager (still in the Delta Quadrant) recieves an assignment from Starfleet like in the episode Friendship One? It could be to aquire a working Transwarp coil or some other valuable equipment from a Borg vessel like in Dark Frontier and send it back to Starfleet like in Inside Man. This should be done under time pressure and with the Collective hunting them.
