Do they even explain why he is in a Starfleet Uniform still? He always planned on retiring to Bajor, he bought some land and was designing a house.


This is all well and good, but at the risk of becoming a broken record (how’s that for dating oneself?), it’s not canon. Will the story of DS9 and Sisko ever be taken up canonically beyond the brief segment on LD? The only real disappointment I had with Picard S3 was the absence of legacy DS9, despite its drawing on that show’s big adversary, the Changelings. (Ok and arguably Worf). I understand and greatly enjoyed that Picard was a TNG celebration but Sisko’s fate is the biggest loose end in all of Berman era Trek. It’s been mentioned by Terry M that a future ST Legacy would tap into DS9, so here’s hoping.

I agree about Sisko…. But season 3 wasn’t the right time to bring Sisko back. He deserves more than a cameo on someone else’s show

Fair enough. :-(

Indeed. Absolutely. The Return of the Sisko deserves should be in the next movie or a whole season. Star Trek: Sisko!

The big issue is how to convince Avery Brooks.

Legacy characters. That’s all Star Trek fans want these days. Great job Picard S3.

Sisko’s story is done. I am open to a Jake Sisko show.

Canon: bah. Don’t care. I like the comics, often more than I like the shows. There are a lot good stories there, and that’s all I care about.

Glad you enjoy them, LD. To me, it’s not the same.

I agree — I started reading the old DC comics series in the late 80’s with TOS and TNG characters (and novels for that matter.) I’m always fascinated by the opportunity to set aside ‘canon’ and just spend more time with these characters. Comics also invite me to use my imagination more than watching the show. I have to ‘fill in the blanks’ between panels and it’s like I get to direct an episode of Star Trek in my mind.

The only thing that bugs me is when the character likenesses are way off—the artwork sometimes isn’t the greatest. Sometimes Sisko doesn’t look anything like Avery Brooks, for example. But that aside, I’m a fan of the comics and the thrill I get sitting down with a new issue is on par with the excitement of watching a new episode of any of the current shows.
