Re: What Kinds of Characters?

There's no particular reason the show would have to revolve around the bridge crew or the senior officers.
There was the show Space Above and Beyond where the ship's commanding officer was a occasional seen recurring character. The main characters were mostly junior officers, with a mid level officer commanding them. While we did see the bridge a few times, we never "meet" the bridge crew.

It's a similar situation on the popular show NCIS, the senior official isn't in every episode, the "crew" is a four member investigation team.

The original idea for the West Wing was that the President would be a minor character.

A new Trek show could revolve around a investigative/away team of young crew members, supported by specialists aboard the ship. They would seen interacting with the ship's higher ranking officers only rarely.
