    Back when Voyager was ending and there was talk of a new Trek series after it ended (which ended up being Enterprise), I was hoping for a fall of the Federation type thing. Something like, Federation wipes out the Borg, and starts adapting their technology and suddenly the Federation is the most powerful political group in the galaxy. There are disputes about access to Borg technology, a big galactic war, and eventually everyone realizes they have three options: Join the Federation, ignore the Federation and fall behind, or oppose the Federation and be destroyed. All the major races join. Over the span of six or seven decades, the Federation becomes too big and powerful too fast, and it becomes very corrupt. The vision of the Federation changes from exploration to conquest, although they pretend otherwise and claim "we're totally not an empire,but they're an empire."

    The series would start after several factions are dissatisfied and the Federation is on the brink of civil war, and would follow a small, outdated ship, on a mission to explore new worlds to conquer, with a crew that constantly struggles with whether to follow their conscience or the orders of a corrupt government.

    This series... seems like it might be very similar. I'm looking forward to it. Also, as @Paladin had pointed out, it's kind of Star Trek: Firefly, which seems fun.

    By the way, the poster with Picard and his dog, Picard is wearing a brown coat.

    People always seem to want a fall of the Federation story, and I couldn't disagree more. Trek isn't Firefly (although a show about a group of civilians in the Trekverse would be awesome), it's meant to be an optimistic view of humanities potential and our future.

    I dunno, stories about a society rising up from the ashes and returning to their former greatness can be pretty interesting. And hopeful.

    From what I understand, there's a lot the Walking Dead hasn't managed yet. Like explaining who's mowing the grass.

    What @Tuckerfan said.

    DS9 pretty much took everything Star Trek is supposed to be and flushed it down a toilet, and it worked pretty well. Voyager was supposed to be a return to what Star Trek is about (exploration and boldly going), but that didn't work out so well.

    What I had in mind was still all optimistic and shit, it's just that the Federation is the bad guy this time.
