Well, this was my post from the first page, with relevant parts bolded. To expand, I think the concept is interesting in the bare bones, but doesn't resonate in a way that I find enjoyable. Now, I understand trying to craft a concept and using current media for reference points. To that end, borrowing Prometheus type materials/ideas to illustrate it makes sense to me. And the author admits this, which I see upon further review. I think exploring a new galaxy is probably the safest way to go, for a more contemporary series. That said, the original concept had no inspired me. Reviewing the site gave me more interest due to exploring a new galaxy, and providing a little creative room for the writers. That said, the Galactic War thing bothers me, just because that is a consistent theme I see in a post Dominion War timeline. Expansion by Milky Way powers is inevitable, I suppose but it doesn't set well with me. tl:dr Some interesting ideas, but I'm not 100% sold yet. Still open.
