Only 14 years? Huh.Crazedwraith wrote:Assuming 1 season = 1 year. It's 14 years as in RL. 7 of TNG, 7 of Voyager with DS9 running concurrently.
Well, I said 5 seasons because that's a good length to plan out in advance if you're going to do a concurrent plot that incorporates events from the other shows. Obviously there would have to be some time-skipping going on (Department of Temporal Investigations shenanigans perhaps?) to get everything in there, and explaining how they're able to be involved in Voyager stuff all the way over in the Delta Quadrant would be problematic. Maybe they futz with the Caretaker Array, or Starfleet commissions them to try and find Voyager? Who knows.
To be honest while there's a lot of potential for shows in the Trek universe, keeping the actual Trek flavor is a tricky business, as is fitting the universe that's been set out in the original timeline.
