In Lee's Action figure Toy Review (not the #1 place for movie gossip, but it has this story) a report said that Patrick Stewart probally will not return to the Captains chair in another Star Trek film. He says he feels as if he's worn out his welcome. He said he's like an athlete that has stayed in the league when he should have retired. This is sad news for Trekkies. This revolation added with the lacluster performance of Nimiesis at the box office may spell doom for the Star Trek movie franchise.
Sad news to say the least as Picard is such a strong character. I cannot see anything being done with Captian Riker and his new ship. Also I can't see a DS9 movie or an "Enterprise" movie. Never say never.
IMO they need something to make people want to watch. What really jump started Captian Kirks movie carrer was his battle with Kon. Thus a story line that alowed a couple of movies to be made after that. These "stand alone" Next Generation Movies just arn't hitting the target. I think that Picards archenemy is Q. Star Trek: Q sounds like a great movie and could be simply awsome. Plus, Q has the power to bring all the captians of all the Star Trek shows together. Can you imagin a movie with Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, and Archer. Wow, what a punch.
Alas, it will never happen .
