How about the original idea, "Wagon Train to the Stars"?

Lets take "Little House on the Prairie" and find a way to convert it to Star Trek. A family of pioneers settles on a planet, and while they try to build their home they encounter a bunch of science fiction horrors that they need to deal with.
It's Star Trek. People are interested in space battles and strange new worlds, not being stuck in one place. It's why Deep Space Nine added the Defiant in season three. Because people weren't digging Trek being stationary.

Now a sci-fi Little House on the Prarie isn't a bad idea in and of itself. But it would need to stand on its own outside the Trek universe.
