DS9 Season 8 Content Requests

The upcoming DS9 documentary, What We Left Behind features a segment on a hypothetical eighth season. Two elements are revealed in a recent Black Sci-Fi article, "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Producers Discuss the USS Emmett Till": Captain Ezri Dax and the USS Emmett Till. Ira Steven Behr mentions that they plan to release a model of the Emmett Till through Eagelmoss. I'd love to see that ship and Captain Ezri Dax--along with everyone else concocted for that S8 concept!--brought to Timelines.

[Also: I highly recommend reading the linked article!]

    Can we get some more characters from TAS?
    Character wishlist:
    • Lieutenant M'Ress
    • Amanda Rogers
    • Sarah MacDougal
    • Mirasta Yale
    • Agmar
  • The newest 3star Siski has a bajoran trait which classifies him as an alien, but we arent allowed to use him in the cadet segment for 3 stars. Please allow him since he has the alien trait.
  • Ice ManIce Man ✭✭✭
    The race traits are variously cultural (Rom and Odo are Bajoran) or literal (Tuvix is Mylean) or reputational (holograms and changelings that look human are Human). It's a confusing mishmash.

    As to Sisko, his mother was a wormhole alien in human form. He's part alien.

  • I wouldn't mind characters from the 24th century relaunch novels, which are the unofficial continuations of the respective shows. But I'll take the season 8 concepts as well.

    Since the new Picard Show is due to start later this year, I think it would make more sense for DB to wait on this. Presumably we'll find out more about what happened post-Nemesis from that show.

    So what?

    It's just an imagining by the DS9 creators of what they might have done. It's not going to be regarded as canonical anyway.

    I take your point. I just prefer crew to be lifted from canon sources, or at least not contradict canon sources.

    You can always dismiss any crew member you don't like. I do it all the time.

    With What We Left Behind playing in theaters Monday night, I'd really like to find a new Captain Ezri Dax in the portal on Tuesday....

    Is your problem with the DS9 writing team conceiving her for their hypothetical Season 8 or with me for wanting her? Either way, my response is still "Grow up and get over it", but I'm curious which one I'm giving that response to.

    We are Star Trek fans debating fictional characters from a show that ended 20 years ago — kind of the antithesis of those who grew up and got over it, wouldn’t you say?

    As far as Captain Ezri: Ezri was such a weak, boring character in Season 7. Never worthy of succeeding Jadzia as host to the Dax symbiont, no matter how much they tried to persuade us otherwise. The idea she becomes a captain is just ridiculous. What they need is a temporal incursion to bring back Jadzia. That’s a captain - or even an Admiral - I could get behind.

    I wonder if we could explode some heads with a Timelines Original Captain Jadzia Dax, using a current photo of Terry Farrell as the source and an appropriately futuristic uniform. The people who hate non-canon crew and are also Dax lovers wouldn’t know what to do with themselves.
