Take away the ship and technology of Star Trek and the show becomes barely recognizable.
Take away the ship, and you have Deep Space Nine.
Take away the ship and tech, and you have eps like "The City on the Edge of Forever" and "Far Beyond the Stars" -- some of the most popular episodes ever, where the SF trappings are only there to provide the opening into very human character stories.
From The Star Trek Guide, the writers' bible to the original series:
Tell your story about people, not about science and gadgetry.
