I have ideas for most of the episodes of the first season for my show. I've got the core characters nailed but still some work to do on the secondary characters.
The first season will include the Purge who are the main antagonists, the Ferengui will return who have become more powerful due to the balance of power shifting, the Klingons will make an appearance with an interesting new spin on them.
But first and foremost they will encounter new worlds and civilizations which will be original and creative.
Each of the crew will be tested in some way or another and have to overcome any personal insecurities they may have - which will show humanity still exists well into the future.
