We've seen a variety of Trek series and films set aboard a starship and aside from a series set aboard a space station, there hasn't been much variety in setting. It seems to me that something new may be in order, and I wonder what ideas you might have. Personally, I'd like to see the hardships and successes that would come with forming a new colony on the outskirts of Federation space. Maybe in the early days, perhaps even before the Federation formed into existence. Maybe one of Earth's first colonies beyond Sol. Starting out aboard ship just like most of the other series, we'd have the opportunity to witness the journey from Earth to their new home among the stars. If it's one of the first colonies, this might be a long journey, with a lot of opportunity for story telling. They might even make contact with new species themselves along the way, along with other discoveries and situations. Once they arrive, they'll be tasked with exploring their new home, and in fact building their new home. We could watch their adaption to this new, alien environment. We could witness their construction of the colony, and its development over time. We'd observe a unique society and culture in the making, who's residents will be left to rediscover themselves in their new land after adapting - after themselves changing. Being on the edge of Federation/United Earth space, they would also no doubt receive many visitors. Traders. Explorers. Pirates. Everything you can imagine the Enterprise finding, can find their colony. What do you think? What ideas for a new setting do you have?
