A non-human captain.

And does the Captain always have to be the main character? Why not have a series that focuses on the 1st officer and how they go from 2nd in command to captain - what a potential for a story arc with that concept.

Bad idea.

You would always having the captain looking inflexible or downright stupid in order to focus on how great the first officer character is.
Hey, it works on cop shows.

"Damnit, Lieutenant. There's no room on this ship for mavericks who don't play by the rules. You're off the mission!"

"What's that, Captain? I can't read you. You're breaking up . . . ."
