What I would want from a new Trek series would be.
- Closer to TOS but updating the elements that are considered cheesy today.
- Dropping the transhuman bans i.e. legal genetic engineering.
- A shipboard A.I. that controls the ship just becuase that is kind of cool and literally makes the ship a character
- More willing to show that the universe can be a dnagerous place i.e. occasional appearances by soul eating space monster things that the crew would have to stop while their exploring the galaxy.
- Make the Klingons more willing to scheme (i.e. closer to John M. Ford's version) and drop the viking biker look.
- Get rid of the stupid head ridges on the Romulans that never made any sense anyway.
- Starfleet and being more like its depicted in Diane Duane's books
- The Federation's tech level being closer to the 80s TOS novels where it was more advanced than the TNG era.
- (This is optional but) can someone at least consider having space fighters on the ship.
