Having grown up the TOS and seeing the rise and fall of many of the newer series, it seems to me the trek franchise has lost some of its original premise of forging new frontiers, exploring new ideas, and drama. Here's a thought for the new series. Why not start where Zepharim Cochrane shakes hands with the Vulcan ambassador at the end of the First Contact movie? Here you have a group of people who are trying to pull themselves out from a devasting war, with new technology, and first contact with an alien race. What do they do from here to establish what would eventually be the Federation? Seems to me this would allow more storylines than could be accomplished in seven years. Any comments.
