I agree 100% Cardassians are cool because they are so thoroughly awesome.

FOR CARDASSIA!

Someone's into spoonheads. =p Federation-Cardassian war could be used to make a movie, I guess. Altough, Maquis and their fight against the Cardassian oppressors would work too.

I agree, they're such great and interesting characters. Romulans are too, but they've been used too much recently.

A DS9 film, or rather, one done by the same writers (dosen't have to be DS9 set, but, Cardassians and stuff?) would be awesome.

Considering the alternate universe canon we now have, the Cardassians can become whatever they want.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing a Star Trek: Cardassia film - an entire film seen from a Cardassian point of view. Show the traditional Starfleet guys as the 'baddies' while the brave Cardassians fight gloriously for the union.

That would be great because you could go way over the top with the script because the Cardies are so caricature-like. Much funny awesomeness.

Dread just won life.

I think that would be a fresh view on the Star Trek universe and, actually, Cardassians are multi-layered and they've never been straight "bad" or "good" guys, they have their own weird sense of right and wrong and justice. You could even argue that in many ways Gul Dukat had qualities of a decent person.

I'd very much like to see a feature film which involves Cardassians, though I don't see that happening if I were honest with you.

I think the whole 'typical' Trek timeline is finished with, so any hope of working on something during the Cardassian-Federation war, or anything revolving DS9 just wouldn't work anymore. Nobody is going to be interested enough for them to warrant such a film, especially as that area of Trek has practically finished up now. From what I'm aware, whatever lose ends they've got, they're taking into STO.

The only think I think they can do, is introduce them in the JJverse, though I'm not sure they'll belong in a Kirk-based era. I'm not even sure if they're known by then, though I suppose anything is possible with the AR, but again, a little too early? I don't know.

If they do use them (in a JJ film) I think they should be a sub-plot, there should be a ship full, or small group, and Kirk (etc) wouldn't know whether to trust them until right at the end of the movie or something.

Give them that edge, never knowing whether they're good or bad. Could be interesting.

Uhura ordered a Cardassian Sunrise in the last film, so, they're there. They could turn up, I think, as something new but still Cardassian. Anything is now possible?

If they had any sense about them, they'd see their potential as characters and give them a sequel. =p

Anything is now possible?[/quote]Whilst possible, it is more likely the ingredients were purchased from another bar, on another planet, where the Cardassians had been. You're probably right though, they'd have probably been introduced in the new Kirk era. Kirk and co didn't think too much of the Romulans being around, taking into account that the TOS Kirk and crew did.

Agreed.

They could make a movie in two parts.. Like clint eastwood did with iwo jima.

You take a huge battle like the one we saw in sacrifice of angels? First movie is on board of a federation ship (no familiar one, just one of the backgrounds) And you see the crew fighting their way through the cardassian fleet. They describe the cardassians as dogs, cardies, spoonheads etc. The movie ends that the persons you get to know on the fed ship, you have a connection with, almost all die and only or two persons survive on the bridge or of the group. You see them looking at the screen or a window and the cardassian fleet is in huge shambles and the remaining forces are hunting them down.Actually like a war movie.

While the second part is on the cardassian side. You see them drinking at quarks, quite shivering from the fact that the federation is leaving with only 600 ships to fight at them. That they realize that humans are actually dangerous and aggressive. Not the propaganda that they hear from the leaders. Later they are in the fleet, also somewhere in the background, and the same thing happens. And you realize that both factions are actually the same and don't want war, only the big called leaders. It would be even cool that you see their ship getting phaser strikes from the fed ship in the other part..
