    are there any places, races we have seen, or things you would like to see again in any future Star Trek?

    One I would love to see again is whatever happened to the exocomps, and the planet where they dumped Wesley's nanites so they would evolve. I really would love to know what happened to that planet.

    That pre-industrial world Archer visited, or the post-industrial one where they used a Suliban pod to escape.

    By Picard's time, the latter could be warp capable, and the former should be post-industrial at least.

    I think it would've been cool to see the Bynars again. They got a cool introduction in "11001001", but then they never brought them back again.

    I'm still hoping I get to see someday how Cardassia rebuilds and reinvents itself after the Dominion War. Okay, there are novels, but I'm still curious how it would be portrayed in live action. 23rd century Cardassia might be interesting as well, but I think a far future depiction would be far too removed from the events that could lead to really interesting story hooks. I also wonder if Weyoun 4 was right and the Dominion is still going strong in the 32nd century.

    Cardassians. They showed up as background in DSC Season 3, but I want actual character(s)

    The Xindi coalition: what's happened with them across the centuries since Archer's time?

    Xindi, Suliban... I didn't really like them. But I would like to know what happened to them.

    Iotians (gangster planet). We may see them again if they ever make the Tarantino Trek movie.

    I would not want to leave them to the mercies of Mr. Tarantino.

    I want to see more of the USS Relativity if she or a future version of her exists.

    What species were the two girls Kirk was with in the movie Into Darkness which had long tails?

    I'd like to see the Andorians again, or were they killed off entirely? For them and Denobulans (Enterprise) to be one of the first species Starfleet/the Federation had contact with they sure don't appear often. I haven't watched Discovery, Picard, or Lower Decks so let me know if something happened to them in canon. I liked their design and their breadth as a species, especially the Andorians and their subspecies.
    Same for the Elaysians (DS9 episode "Melora") since I think their home planet would be very interesting to create visually. Floating streams of water, animals able to turn and attack you from almost any direction, not to mention flying, it would be great to see, especially since they rarely leave their homeworld.
    I believe language/cultural variety within planets could be greatly improved upon in Star Trek. I remember in the episode Dear Doctor (enterprise) the crew were shocked to find out that there were two languages on the planet (and thus automatically in their minds two species) when on Earth alone we're one species and we've got over 2000 languages and that's only counting the ones that still exist and have more than a couple hundred speakers. Sure we beat out those other species, but what's to say that if they still existed that they wouldn't just speak the language invented in the region? That never sat right with me and I began to notice that Star Trek tends to over-simplify other planets when it comes to culture and language. I think the most linguistically different language (from most of the ones spoken on earth in the real world today) was probably the Tamarians' (TNG) phrasal language. I found it so interesting, I've rewatched clips of that episode on youtube over and over again wishing we could see more of them, and not only them, but different types of languages represented in Star Trek.
    When it was first announced, I was hoping Star Trek Prodigy would be about starfleet academy, but from what I've now gathered it seems to be red squad(DS9): dark mode.
    Last thing, for us to have some pretty smart quadrupeds and marine animals in the real world and for Star Trek to focus most of its attention on bipeds is a real loss, I wanna see more fish that can communicate.
