If I could make some huge changes to the show, I'd loved to have removed the Starfleet aesthetics. The Caretaker sent out a number of drone ships to scan for suitable candidates and upon finding them to collect samples (either by beaming people out of where they were or snatching shuttles), which are then returned to the Array. As such he has amassed a number of people from numerous races, some of which are more compatible and therefore go through the procedure, though none of them survive for long. The survivors must band together in order to learn what has happened and find a way to escape, with old enemies having to put their misgivings aside if they are to live. A little fuzzy on what the plot will actually be, but ultimately, one of those to lost to the experiments on is the son of a local warlord who tracked back the ship that abducted his son and attacks the Array, causing critical damage. The Caretaker will beam a group of the survivors to one of his drone ships and launches it, this will then become the ship the ragtag group of disparate people must use in order to get themselves home, all whilst never quite sure if their new shipmates will help them of scheme to kill them. The crew would consist of/include: Commander Kathryn Janeway, whom the Caretaker tells the ship is its new master Rookie Ensign, who was with Janeway on their runabout and was experimented on but survived Maquis Lieutenant, a rogue intel officer who defected and was who Janeway was sent to recover before being dragged into the Delta Quadrant Centurion Tavok, a Romulan tactical officer Neelix, a scoundrel/trader from somewhere in the Delta Quadrant Kes, a young kid who was orphaned by the Caretaker's experiment and doesn't know where she's from B'Elanna Torres, a half-Klingon engineer who'd been working on a rundown freighter with serious anger issues Seska, a Cardassian scientist/engineer who never seems to give a straight answer Doctor, an artificial lifeform of alien origin programmed for little more than responding to medical emergencies Bajoran Militia Officer, could be Gerron, Celes, or Tabor Alien Helmsman, from an all new species Thinking there definitely wouldn't be a huge crew, maybe picking up a few others along the way, though one thing is very clear, humans are the minority onboard (though are the ones who end up in charge of it). Thought of this as a touch of FarScape mixed with Star Trek, though probably without the awesome puppets.
