My ultimate fan-film wish would still be to see a Star Trek: Excelsior fan-film. One that would mix TOS actors with fan-film actors:
Captain Sulu (George Takei)
Commander Chekov (First Officer)(Walter Koenig)
Lt. Tuvok (security)(Tim Russ)
Lt. Peter Kirk (helm) (James Cawley)
Lt. Xela (Communications)(Chase Masterson)
Engineering Officer (new character)
Helmsman # 2 (new character)
I would take Commander Rand away from the Excelsior, and have her work at Starfleet HQ as a Captain.
As one of the people who supported the effort by the International Federation of Trekkers to create a Sulu TV series, I'd certainly support something like this. The Phase II episode with Sulu was a lot of fun, so there's good reason to do a fan film on the Excelsior crew.
