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 have the captain looking inflexible or downright stupid in order to focus on how great the first officer character is.
That's a pretty big leap.

I find it far more likely that such a captain would be written as a wise old mentor. The Obi Wan to the plucky commander's Skywalker.
