Human. As much as I and much of the rest of the fandom might totally love a show with an alien captain, to appeal to the mass audience, I think the main character needs to be human so they can identify well with them. The only way it works otherwise is if one of the other characters is the main human "me-in-the-show" character, like if the main cast were below-decks crew and the bridge crew were seen more rarely - which is something else we haven't had and probably won't, even though some of us would find it interesting.
