But I like the concept of all male teams involved in a common pursuit. Like football teams for example or the U.S. military before large numbers of women were allowed to join (my dad was a soldier back in that era).

All male organizations tend to function better than ones that mix males and females. Females are a major distraction and a source of tension for males. Males are far, far easier to control and command where not females are present.

And I like organizations will little emphasis on individualism but emphasize common striving for a goal.

One reason that I dislike emphasis on "character" in Star Trek and prefer a focus on "the plot" or "the mission".
How the hell did you ever get into Trek fandom in the first place? It seems clear you want a series set 300 years in the past rather than the future. (Or the present, for that matter.)

Do you like gladiator movies?
