Spellchecker? You are going to call me out on my spelling? Really?
Considering you're not even able to spell "spell checker" correctly, even though there's an example right in your quote? Or based on how complicated words like "you" seem to cause you problems?

The more threatening the villains the higher the stakes the more tension and conflict is created. The bigger the challenge to the main characters the more their personalities are d explored and their skills shown.

These particular villains may only last a season or two. Fundamentally the show will be based on original Trek of seeking out of new civilizations and boldly going where no one has gone before. Basing the series in the 29th century would be an opportunity to introduce original new species.
So, you're not able to work with the wealth of existing lore and you already know that your "enemy of the season" will fall soon apart, at which point you'll probably pull another one out of your ass?

Sorry to disappoint you, but the initial idea of Trek was not to offer a new space battle every week. That only really took off when DS9, VOY and the other newer installments decided to cater to the dregs of fandom.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
