some character ideas:
-other-gendered character (both male and female, or neither, or something else)
-gay or lesbian or bi
-AI (or even sentient ship)
-colony creature that can break up into multiple autonomous beings for short periods of time (like Bem from Animated Series or the character from DS9 novel Rising Son)
-genetically engineered
-water-breather
-winged and can fly
-infiltrator into the crew that we know about from the start, but the rest of the crew takes a season to figure out
-descendant from multiple races (like the character in a recent TNG book that was human, Vulcan, Betazoid, and something else)

here's an idea I've had that would work for a character or show idea:

Have a character that sort of grew up around the characters we know of an learned from them.
He went to the Academy with Chekov; served on the Enterprise under Captain Kirk.
But then went through some relativistic time dilation or something that allows him to jump to the 24th century and serve with Picard on E-D as a LT; then LCDR on DS9 prior to getting his own command, etc.

Sort of a Horatio Hornblower character, where we get to see how he came up through the ranks right alongside the characters we know and love. Maybe he's the captain, but every once in a while he relates a life-lesson that he learned coming up through the ranks and we get to flash back on that story with the old crews. Like a guy relating his memoirs of the times he spent with history's greatest legions.

if you're going to do a character displaced in time, how about a character from the 20th or 21st century who gets displaced somehow into a ST era.
Like, what ever happen to those 20th century guys from 1st season of TNG?

I would make a Trek series about the Klingons or Romulans.
