|Chase Masterson at Leeta|
Though currently in an age of endless reboots and continuations, some of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s cast members – particularly actress Chase Masterson – have made it clear that they have some conditions that must be met before they would even entertain the idea of returning.
Speaking to a crowd of fans at the Deep Space Nine panel held during the recent April 8th-10th Star Trek: Mission Chicago fan convention, series stars Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys), Alexander Siddig (Julian Bashir), and Chase Masterson (Leeta), were asked – as many actors of widely-beloved series are nowadays – if they would ever return to the Bajor-orbiting space station for further adventures.
While all three were open to the idea, each posited that their return would be conditional on any future project meeting individually-specified criteria.
Rounding out the trio’s set of answers, Masterson put forth, “I would want to make sure that Lita – I don’t think they need me anymore to be any kind of thing other than a strong character.”
“And I think if it had to do with social justice, it could work,” she continued. “But anything else, I think we’ve already done that. I think moving along the social justice narrative in terms of Latinum not being the focus on Ferenginar. That, I’d like to do.”
Um, no thanks. I was never a great DS9 watcher, although I vaguely recall some of it. The Ferengi were the best part. Why ruin them by reforming them and turning them into good socialists like all of Hollywood. Find a younger and hungrier actress.

I'm not sure why she was included. She was only on 17 episodes. Siddig was on 173 episodes. Same with Nana Visitor. In other words, every episode.ReplyDelete
