Well, the few points I see, are things that a lot of 'fanboys' come up with for their fanfics, and just aren't very original ideas. The 'war-hero' captain, the 'by-the-book' XO, the misfit crew, all of them having to get along to save the day. Ancient and mysterious aliens who are the threat of all and such. It's not bad in itself, it's just.... been thought of before really.

I'm sorry if I'm sounding a bit harsh. If this was a good written fanfic, I'd give it a shot. But as a tv-show, it sort of feels rehashed.
You have it spot on.

I'll pass.

Too much sentlement towards ideas and productions of old cancelled TV shows in the 1990's - there is only so much you can spin off from the original Trek concept, that's why the reboot is the only way to make Trek work in today's mainstream.
