Yeah. I would not want phasers to destroy planets though. That'd go too far. Like someone said earlyer on on the thread, why not do a time travel series. "time, the final frontier".
It's called Doctor Who
I don't understand this desire to try to lock Trek into a particular premise. It's strength has always been that the format is flexible enough to tell any kind of story a writer wants to tell.
I prefer to send them back in time, one time only, rather than give them control of the time machine, as one can solve all sorts of problems by going back in time. I think a Galaxy class starship in the 21st century with a 21st century crew is a good premise to start with. The best time travel stories are stories where characters are basically marooned back in time rather than in control of a time machine.
