how about a menace that goes after someone other than humans/Earth for a change?
I like that. Kirk and crew trying to prevent a disaster on/to another planet. You still have big scale events, but not a threat to Earth for a change.
Thanks, buddy! Some will say that we already got this in the Narada's attack on Vulcan and the Volcano sequence from Into Darkness, so I want to be clear that I'm talking about having that be the PRIMARY plot, potentially in a setting where they're not even wanted. (?)
To clarify further, aside from Enterprise and crew, I don't want Earth involved AT ALL. No Insurrection or Avatar knock offs please!
