Isn't that just DS9 then? How many humans on that show? Three or four?

OOH! A CHALLENGE!

 

On the main cast you have Sisko, O'Brien, Bashir & Jake

Other characters there are: Jennifer, Keiko, Molly, Vash, Seyitek, Alixus, Cassandra, Vinod, Stephen, Joseph, Meg, Commander Hudson, Admiral Nachayev, Samuels, Amaros, Captain Kiyo, Tom Riker, Leanne, Melanie, Kassidy Yates, Eddington, Joseph Sisko, Admiral Leyton, Captain Benteen, Enrique Muniz, Kalandra, Kirby, Dulmer, Lucsley, Fullerton, Admiral Whatley, Rebecca Eddington, Dr Zimmerman, Richard Bashir, Amsha Bashir, Miranda, Gabriel, Pechetti, Stoltzof, Amaro, Dr Geiger, Admiral Ross, Admiral Coburn, Jack, Lauren, Sarina, Patrick, Hain, Bilby, Sloan, Watters, Dorian, Shepherd, Farris, Yoshi, Captain Cusack, Sarah Sisko, Vargas, Reese, Kellin, Larkin, Hector Alario. [I've very likely mispelt at least some of those.]

Mirror Terrans, crew of the Enterprise, all the 21st century people from Past Tense, base personnel from Little Green Men,

(Cardassians and / or Changelings and / or Klingons etc disguised as humans, and holographic & vision people not included.)

 

But also a strong contingent of alien characters, many of whom contributed much to the show and its identity.


Touche. I was just talking about the main cast though. Every series had its human/alien minor characters but only DS9 had more aliens than humans in the main cast for the majority of its run.


That said, the thought of an Academy series makes me cringe too.

I think a major problem with producing a new series is being able to please the fans. For instance, the idea of DS9 was probably abbhorent to many fans, or would have been, before it was actually broadcast. In fact, the same was likely true with TNG. Many have still not accepted ENT... and let's not even broach the subject of TAS!

ah, yes. DS9 the best Trek series, and with the best Captain!

I've said it before, I see a lot of Sisko in JJ Kirk!

As Shatner once put; "We're all human"!

Risk is the business anyways, and I don't think I'd want to see Trek just play it entirely safe by catering to just the mainstream fans, not without adding in a little bit of risk, like Trek has always done!

Not that anyone's keeping track, but the pic I posted up before of Janeway was supposed to be more of a joke, because everyone always picks KvP. No one ever picks KvJ, or PvA, or something else...


Just in case anyone was misled.


But I'm digressing...

I have an idea. How about an outpost on the edge of the Neutral Zone, after the destruction of romulus? You could have a station and a ship, and focus on resettlement. Maybe you could have rogue romulans attacking? And someone needs to be andorian.

Um, isn't the point of star trek high morals? You want a show with a bunch of immoral people? What's stupid about the ships? You want swearing, and brutality? You want blood on the floor? Why don't you stop insulting star trek and entertain your sick mind with some horror movies?

Why not keep on going with what they are doing? I mean for a series based on the future, this set of producers and wrighters sure do have a strange fascination with the "Past". If things were to keep going as they are, why not make an academy series? A series that focuses on a crew as they go through Starfleet Academy and their first year in service

As I recover from the phage, which was followed by an ear infection, here are some purposely bad ideas for a new Star Trek series :


 


1. Baby Borg: The baby borg from "Collective" (VOY) was accidentally dumped onto an M-Class Planet in the Delta Quadrant with some trash. Follow this tough little borg as it collects a range of alien (and human) misfits to explore the Delta Quadrant in their attempts to survive... and find a little something called family.


2. Starfleet Medical: On an experimental medical outpost our favorite doctors, including The Doctor, Dr. Bashir, Dr. Crusher, Dr. Flox, and the disembodied voice of Bones, attempt to cure unknown illnesses and even zanier alien species, all while delivering classic one-liners and a dose of humanity from which we all can learn.


3. Red Shirts! Behind the Away Missions: These single-episode biopics offer revealing looks into the backgrounds of red shirts that sacrificed their lives on away missions. Learn about their lives, their loves, their losses... and sometimes... their dirty little secrets.


4. Federation Legal: In this reality-style legal program, we get to follow real cases that are before the courts. See Klingons sued for libel! Vulcans brought before the courts for child abuse! Kardassians charged with manslaughter and disturbing the peace!


5. Borg Storage Wars: When the collective needs to clean out its storage facilities, see what kinds of treasures this cast of characters can find. Let the bidding begin, and watch as players risk their gold-plated latinum!

I personally prefer sequels, although the 'Entereprise' sequel was not bad at all. In fact it was great, but a sequel after the times of Voyager would be great for me.

Whatever the ideas, you can't change the fundamental underpinnings of Star Trek.
There has to be a Federation complete with star ship, there has to be more humanoids than not, and somebody needs to boldly go where no man has gone before.
If you mess with that then its not star trek and you would have to call it something else!
I agree that they can't make it too soon, people need to digest the new movie, however I hope somebody is at least planning it already. We can't run out of trek and with our new knowledge and technology, there is so much scope to further explore our universe, theoretically at least!

IMO, the next series should be a sequel series taking place sometime after voyager.  I would like to see something that is based largely on a starship, but possibly also with subplots based on planets/colonies/outposts. 


I would like a new series to largely take place in a less explored area of space, or an entirely new one.  Possibly this new series could go further into exploring either gamma/delta quadrants or both.  Or what could be really interesting and would take it back to its "exploration" roots, is being largely set in another galaxy altogether.


I would like to see a couple new species introduced.  The suggestion above about taking place in a new galaxy would deffinately support this.  At the very least, have a previously introduced species that had a minor role, take a bigger role.


I also wouldn't mind having the Romulans and/or the Borg having a major role again, because there is still just so much interesting things that can happen with those 2.  I'd like to see more of species 8472 as well.  Also think it would be interesting to have wesley crusher return as a grown up "traveler".  Finally, I'd like there to be at least one klingon starfleet officer on board the ship, it could possibly be Worf's son Alexander.


Some plot line ideas...


1.) federation exploration of new galaxy, race between federation vs. romulan empire for this purpose.


2.) race between federation/klingon alliance vs romulan (and possibly with new romulan allies) to establish a presence in either gamma/delta quadrant.


3.) Borg try to assimilate Romulan empire. 


4.) Romulan empire or Borg try to take over the recently defeated dominion. 


5.) for ideas 3&4; Obviously the federation would become involved in some way or another, cuz lets be honest, there probably isn't going to be any star trek series or film where the federation is not a major factor.


Finally, I'd like there to be an emphasis on new technology.  I'd like the show to feature the Enterprise NCC-1701-F which is a new class of starship.  I'd like this new enterprise to also have and use a modern version of the phase shifting/cloacking device from the USS pegasus from the TNG episode "pegasus".  Whether or not its a plotline of this proposed series, I think that the cause should be that the romulans have become even more hostile and somehow broke the treaty of algeron, maybe leading to a full on federation/romulan war (could be another plotline).  But at any rate, the Result of this is that the federation equips all its upper end starshps with this phase shifting/cloaking device starting with the flagship enterprise NCC-1701-F
