plus who's to say how many worlds are warp capable?
What does that have to do with anything?

They can't interfere with non-warp capable species. What's starfleet to do once they found all the warp capable ones?

There are 300 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. I don't care how fast you're able to travel, it will take a massive amount of time to explore them all.

Assuming you had 1000 ships with full crews... assuming they can instantaneously travel anywhere... and assume they're all so good they can fully explore a system in one day... and assume nothing goes wrong like hostile aliens or anomalies or what not...

That's would still take those ships 300 million days to explore them assuming perfect coordination. That's over 800,000 years. Assuming they don't take a day off. Safe to say even when speed doesn't become an issue, there's still plenty of galaxy to explore.

Well, keep in mind most star systems in this galaxy are binary systems, so cut that number in half. A little over 400,000 years. Still...!

Absolutely a 25th Century show, mostly because it allows the writers to re-establish the area. Not get tied down by the continuity and politics of the old shows. That's the real reason TNG jumped 80 years, to remove the shackles of what TOS and the films had put them in.

For it to be Star Trek and stand on it's own, just like TNG did, it would have to be a new frontier. A ship out there Boldy Going Where No One Has Gone Before, which is absolutely what a new show must be about. Feasibly it could be the same galaxy, with the Gamma Quadrant pretty unmapped, but it gets a little murky. I think the best chance for that is either the Federation can now travel to a new Galaxy, or you go with something along the lines of the premise of the aborted pitches of Bryan Singer's Federation or animated series Final Frontier.

It isn't just about having a super fast propulsion system, as pointed out our galaxy contains several hundreds of billions of stars.

There are 1,875,000 stars in a 1,000 light year sphere centered upon Earth.

On the average six and a half percent of them will be of the same spectral type as our sun.

Picard stated that the Federation was 6,000 light years in length. There reasonable has to be lifetimes worth of stars within the Federation that no one has been to, that could be explored.

Originally, I was just trying to find a reason for galactic travel but I'm sure they have system bypass rules too, avoiding some high risk solar systems due to the danger they cause to ships, or a primary focus on systems that has traces of warp signatures, bypassing stars without them so a civilization like ours wont catch a ship with a satallite?

I think one could put together a case from onscreen material that there is quite a bit of Federation space that has been charted ("there's a star system over here"), but not actually explored (surveyed in person), particularly along the outlying regions.

And of course we have no idea what lays on the other side(s) of The Federation's outermost enemies (IE: Where the Federation doesn't surround their territory) no idea what lies beyond that 6000 Light Years length, of Federation space, other than what was given to them by friendlies

There are lots of stories to tell in the 25th century, new people to meet and friends and foes alike. Lions, tigers, and bears, oh,my!!!

Realistically speaking, the Federation could use von Neumann probes to explore the less-interesting worlds. :P

Considering both Nomad and V'ger, what could possibly go wrong with that?
