If CBS called you and said that you would be a producer on the new "Star Trek" series, and wanted your ideas about the direction of the show, what two or three things would you want included in the show? For me, if the show is set in an earlier time period than DS9/Voyager, then there should be only familiar aliens on the show -- e.g., Andorians, Tellarites, Orions, Vulcans, Deltans, El-Aurians, etc. (The recent movies have been too much like "Star Wars," with countless random "cantina aliens" in the background. Aliens should be recognizable and be there for a specific reason in "Star Trek," unless the crew is actually visiting a "strange, new world.") The crew should be more representative of the Federation, with fewer Terrans and more crew members from other UFP worlds. There should definitely be an Andorian in the main cast. The new show should revisit some great milestones from "Star Trek" history, like the Guardian of Forever, Iconian gateways, and other ancient artifacts and races. What about those invading aliens from the Andromeda Galaxy that Kirk ran into -- did they just give up and go home? What about the brain parasites taking over Starfleet Command in TNG's "Conspiracy"? There are many unresolved plot threads and threats around the galaxy that were never fully explored. I would also be fine with going a year or two without any more time paradoxes. But another trip to the Mirror Universe would be fun.
