Be nice to have a run of the mill Federation ship...
These are the voyages of the supply ship Monotony, its continuing mission: to deliver tricobalt ore from Betazed VI to Starbase 117, to clean out cargo holds and recalibrate transporter coils, to boldy go back and forth over and over again.
Yeah, that's inherently the problem with doing a series about an ordinary ship--they tend to do very ordinary things. Even if a Trek series did center on a non-frontline vessel, the action-adventure aspect of Trek would require it to be a hero ship nonetheless, frequently getting into dangerous combat situations and saving the Galaxy from various threats all by itself like hero ships tend to do.
