It’s been sixteen years since Patrick Stewart and the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation depicted their characters in the depressingly shocking film Star Trek Nemesis. In spite of the progression of time, fans have not given up hope that this specific Star Trek cast could return for another film. Even though Nemesis wasn’t a success, during its production itself, a script began being written for the next TNG film. This would be a film that would have seen a crossover with Deep Space Nine and Voyager characters. Brent Spiner was co-writing the film alongside John Logan. Little is known about what the film would have included. However, Spiner has been on record expressing it would have been the last film, wrapping up a significant part of the TNG mythos that was left unfinished after the series ended. What we have here are reasons an additional TNG-driven Star Trek film should be made.
1. The Return Of Commander Sela
Another most loved character meriting film representation is Sela. She is half-human, half-Romulan with an imperative part in the Romulan government. She is the daughter of Tasha Yar, who died in The Next Generation’s first season. A couple of seasons later, time is altered and the alternate Tasha Yar is sent back in time, trapping herself there. She is captured in the end and Sela is the result of her union with a Romulan general. Tasha was later murdered attempting to escape with her young child, so Sela was raised Romulan, and taught to detest the Federation.
Despite the fact that Sela just shows up in four episodes of TNG, she was effectively one of the show’s best villains! Her last appearance in season five is uncertain and open-ended. Fans would have liked to see her in DS9 as the Romulans and Federation teamed up to battle the Dominion, yet it never happened. It appeared a missed opportunity in Nemesis. Sela would be a great villain for a final TNG film, and it is idyllic to have Denise Crosby join the cast once more.
2. More Worf
Worf is one of the best characters presented in Star Trek and he’s had the most screen time of any character. He has had a curring role in 11 seasons of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine combined with an expansion four Star Trek movies. Fan most loved characters, William Riker and Deanna Troi leave Picard and the Enterprise-E in Nemesis. However, Worf returns in spite of his DS9 story arc segment ending with his position in the Klingon government.
So why did Worf return? Well, one thing that seems to be valid about Worf is that he doesn’t fit in among his fellow Klingons. He doesn’t concur with their ethics and norms and they, thus, have frequently considered him to be an outcast since he was raised by humans and joined Starfleet. So, it would have been pleasant if Nemesis had incorporated some discourse clarifying Worf’s return. His return gives us an impeccable potential plot for another film.
