Great read but like always some questions come to mind
Genesis was promised to be a way for captains to go "bodly to were no man has gone before" in a way the player could reach a star system and help the locals and even find "new species" if they worked long enough for BO's (bridge officers) and the best part was that players could share coordinates and ofcourse write a captains log as description to other captains that may go there, is this still in?
or Genesis is an alternative to episodes by giving mass effect type "quest planets" everyone can head to, do their thing, get out and no real gain besides some merit points (generic content)
I think the first option as was suggested by the dev team was a lot better, exploring and finding strange species, conflicts, etc in my humble opinion.
But any way, definetly sounds great even as "cheap missions" as long as keeps the trek feel to it.
