    In the future, Star Trek creators should try a series using an alien race as the main protagonist and use humans and the Federation as supporting roles... Cardassains as the main characters or Ferengis or Klingons or some other alien race ...

    It would change up Star Trek universe... Aliens have stories to tell too...

    Definitely, and it would allow them to tell certain stories without changing the nature and tone of the Federation and/or Starfleet characters.
    It would also be the best way to truly expand the universe into new directions with standalone miniseries or an anthology series.

    It would be interesting because the Ferengi believe the Federation was a threat to thier Ferengi Alliance and to their society and culture...

    With this many shows running at the same time no reason not to use one or two of them for exploring the weird corners of the universe. We've never even left the galaxy except accidentally for a few hours.

    Honestly, with Discovery I would use the spore drive to go to another galaxy and see what the Kelvans are up to.

    why would they regard the federation as a threat? once the ferengi throw out all of rom's "reforms" it will be business as usual.

    The federation has got rid of money and commerce for profit...You work to achieve personal growth advance mankind... Everything the Ferengi are about, the Federation unhoards profit... lets not talk about women...

    They still made it work. Largely because the Federation never forced the Ferengi to change. That happened because if exposure to new ideas.
