Re: could they do a show with "realistic" aliens?
It doesn't really bother me. I kinda like variations of the humanoid theme, I think it is also easier from a story telling perspective to just have different looking humanoid aliens.
We have the Tholians, Gorn, Sheliak, Xindi....there have been numerous attempts at making some species that look alien. Though the most effective have all been humanoid: Romulan, Klingon, Cardassian, Ferengi...

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing, all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes. - Gene Roddenberry
