The best way to do a Daniels show would be a la Quantum Leap (with less Scott Bakula); a Ferengi Al while we're at it.

They could have an experimental Federation ship they use on their missions. I think it would be cool, kind of like Star Trek meets a blend of "James Bond" and "Nikita." That would make for something people would want to watch, with espionage, action, conspiracy, and Orion females. I would have set during the current Iconian Wars.
your assuming section 31 is more then one person who knows all the secrets of the federation. it's hard to know if s31 is a group, an individual or something else because canon trek never provided it. and why would s31 make itself a target and have a headquarters?

1. the various people involved in the star trek tng cast have got their middle age spreads going and dont exactly look like they used to and most of them would need to get into a gym for a month or longer while others appear to be unavailable through current acting or directing. if there were to be a hand off it would like be one or two characters at most to do it. kirk handing the baton to picard, picard handing the baton to sisko, quark handing the baton to paris.

2. why set it in the STO era? its full of nonsensical plots.

3. no. and i would never watch a spin off from jjcrapverse.

4. post-3000's? why? star trek is about the human condition, having nothing but time travel episodes and conflicts surrounding it doesnt add anything but fictitious elements.

Well all of the ideas I suggested is in the prime verse of the show, the first idea I suggested is perfect, like you said the actors are in their middle ages so they can make special guest appearances with the new crew. Why not in the sto era?, still in the prime verse timeline and it can fit with the sto game and clear up any messes. Last idea can do all of that plus more!

Personally they should continue on after Nemesis. Use the script they were going to use for the original star trek 11 with the tng crew and put it in the series have the first 2 or 3 episodes mixed with the new crew.


He is a question for you all, when they do make a new series. Should there be a new ship and what do you want it to look like, (does not matter if it is set a months after nemesis)

For me i dont mind, if it is tng era back on the Enterprise E or a sovereign class. If it is set way after nemesis then new ship.

Hows this for an original idea, make a show without a permanent cast, it should focus on a different ship & crew every couple of episodes or something. Would that be do-able?

Call the series "Star Trek Magellan", and name the main ship the Magellan as well if you need a catchy sounding name.
I would sail for Andromeda, the Maggelanic Cloud, IIRC, is only a small irregular galaxy... But a single Federation ship in a completely unknown part of the universe would be cool. It could take elements of Voyager, Battlestar Galactica and Andromeda, and TOS.

They are isolated, but they aren't heading home- they are exploring. The ship could be a real powerhouse, and still get into trouble, simply because it can't call for starfleet support, and possibly not even for advice. (The last is a bit a TOS throwback, since Kirk seemed to have less ability to contact Starfleet then Picard could.)


---
A more specific concept I had in mind was that they'd use an artificial wormhole (yet another technology Starfleet is working on) to get to Andromeda and start an exploration, colonziation and diplomacy mission there. They learn that large parts of the galaxy cannot be explored with warp anymore, after some kind of catastrophe or interstellar war devastating subspace. Quantum Slipstream works, but is still limited, and there are passable subpsace corridors that are difficult to find and navigate. There are no aliens with bumps on their foreheads in Andromeda, thought there were some humanoids once - which are hated or feared due to what they did (weaponizng some "space whales" was one of my idea, that are now considered a menace). For continuity back with the Andromedans from TOS, The war or catastrophe might be exactly what they were trying to flee.

That's not always true. Look at Superman, vampire flicks, etc. Data's entire story arc was about discovering what it is to be human... and he wasn't a human.

As with others, I'd like to see a Trek series wherein the captain is a member of an alien species. I get that having a human captain and several human crew members is so that we share those characters' POV. But I'd love to see how, say, a Bolian Starfleet captain goes about their daily business as both an officer and a person.

"Small" is a relative term - you're still looking at ten billion stars, literally hundreds of globular clusters, more hundreds of open clusters and nebulae, the remnants of a supernova seen here in 1987 (although since the Large Magellanic Cloud is over 157,000 lightyears away, or over twice the distance to the Delta Quadrant, the radiation levels in that nebula have doubtless died down a bit by now), and a structure suggesting that it may in fact be the remnant of a small spiral galaxy that collided with the Milky Way at some point in the distant past.

It is in fact sufficiently distant that in Niven's novel Ringworld, it was assumed to be the logical refuge of species fleeing the explosion of the galaxy discovered in the story "At the Core" (fortunately, astronomers have since learned that spiral galaxies, due to the supermassive black holes in their cores that cause the spiral to form, are immune to becoming Seyfert galaxies...).

Great minds think alike, yes I do agree with this idea as well. Instead of one crew have the series span several crews on different types of ships which they can also interact with each other through the series and join together for an big event at the end of each series or half way through. Each crew will tell the story from their perspective as well. I always wished something like this with TNG, DS9 and Voyager but it was still good to see TNG crew at the beginning of DS9 and VOY on DS9.

It would be amazing if the writers would write their stories and ask the public which to go with, this way the audience can decide which direction the story will go? Or ask the audience at the end of each episode what do you want to see or happen in the story, show hints so they don't give away too much of the story.

So far, there's one episode released, "Pilgrim of Eternity", that follows on from "Who Mourns For Adonais?". It also starts with Scotty's experimental holodeck, and introduces us to a really gorgeous redhead who is Starfleet's first shipboard counselor. The second episode will apparently be unveiled at an upcoming con in Phoenix.

It has its flaws, of course - Todd Haberkorn, who plays Spock, does not, IMO, have the gravitas necessary to the role, and the fellow playing McCoy is a bit more "jovial physician" and a bit less "crusty country doctor" - but Vic Mignogna makes for a great Kirk, and Grant Imahara's Sulu isn't bad as long as he's not called on to emote too much. (The scene where he and a redshirt were doing some repair work on the hull and the redshirt's phaser overloaded got a bit narmy when Grant was required to register horror.) On the other hand, the fellow playing McCoy recently announced that he was going to have to pull back from the acting side of things due to personal issues, although he was planning on staying involved in the production end.

There's also "Star Trek: Renegades", Tim Russ' crowdfunded pilot for a new Trek series set after Voyager. Worlds that supply dilithium to the Federation are disappearing, with space/time warped around them to prevent access; Adm. Chekov calls on Tuvok, now head of Section 31, to put together a team of Fleet rejects and borderline criminals - renegades, if you will - to investigate. (Mignogna's involved in this one, too, as a Cardassian prisoner.)

I believe there are a few other such pro/fan efforts, but I'm afraid I don't have time to Google them this morning.


Agreed... the redhead is spectacular.
