It came from seeing THIS FLOWCHART...

And the way the maker of the flowchart split Trekkies into those who liked Wil Wheaton and those who didn't.

I know there probably isn't any new Trek TV series on the horizon, but what if there were? Just thinking aloud.

I'd want a series where Wil isn't necessarily playing Wesley Crusher, of course. I'd rather see him play a new character. He'd be the Captain of a smaller starship, a frigate or destroyer. His ship would be part of a squadron in a sector of the Federation's interior, doing Starfleet's grunt work (search-and-rescue, convoy escort, hunting down pirates and smugglers--and of course those multitudes of operational drills, wargames, and training missions). Unlike TOS and TNG, there wouldn't be much exploration or encounters with new species...there would, however, be opportunities to tidy up the dozens of narrative loose threads left behind by all the previous series. (That alone could fill out several seasons of episodes!)
