DS9 movie 

🍍 The best part: the writers sitting around and planning out "What would episode 1 of season 8 be like?"
🍍 The worst part: they told us to "stick around after the credits for a roundtable discussion" and it was mostly them talking about details of CBS archival practices

🍍 The actor who plays Garak says that he was playing him as gay, and very much into Bashir
🍍 Behr says he should have pushed for making that explicit and playing Garak/Bashir as a romance
🍍 They talk about how Rejoined was good, but not enough to credit them with a "checkmark" in the sexual identity category of representation (they do not mention Chimera, which was even better imo)

🍍 They had a bunch of people who were like "I joined the military because of Star Trek Deep Space Nine" which, at least on me, kinda had exactly the opposite of what I think their intended effect was

🍍 They briefly discussed what they might do with Section 31 if they had a full season, and it's like the DS9 writers are the only people in the universe who understand that Section 31 is supposed to be an actual villain and a cautionary tale, not just "cool Starfleet with leather gear"

🍍 There were other actors that were not Jeffrey Combs, probably?

🍍 There was some funny shade thrown on the actor who plays Dukatβ€”"He's not the sort of actor who would normally be the leading man type, you know? But then we put a lot of make-up on him and he was passable"

@bgcarlisle Armin Shimerman talked about it in an interview I saw recently (that one where he also talks about being a union leader while also being the anti-union character on the show) and reflected that he was maybe the only primary character that could easily pull it off and pretend to be the same age due to the amount of makeup he was wearing

Then again, I'm not sure there's a need for the characters to pretend to be the same age, esp given the way the show ended.

@cwebber The way they pitched their imaginary start to season 8, it was ~ 20 years after the end of season 7

@cwebber I'm guessing that the documentary will be viewable in some other venue (download, streaming, on-disc) at some point

Their thumbnail sketch of that one episode was honestly better than all of Discovery season 2
