I'm with the Lynx on this one. So many possibilities in the prime-verse unexplored yet.
I'm not so sure. They were already to the point by Voyager that they were retelling stories and just gluing different pieces of rubber to actors foreheads to make "new" aliens.
And there is nothing to stop a reboot tv series set in the NuUniverse from turning into alien of the week. As much as I enjoy all the positives of not being crushed under decades of canon, and the thought of better looking Trek it can end up just as formula and repetitive as some of the prime episodes did.
I agree.

But I'd rather re-explore the things we already have from a 21st century perspective instead of trying to expand a universe that is already paper thin from a storytelling perspective.
