Blog #25: My New Trek Series Premise, Pt II
As I write this it is my hope someone involved in the creation of the new Trek series will read this idea and (hopefully) use it. My idea for a new series is this:
Star Trek: Light In Darkness
Section 32: a new Starfleet Intelligence Task Force that answers to Admiral Janeway and/or Captain Worf. (Janeway and Worf would not be series regulars, but would guest star from time to time on the show). Going with people they trust or people they know capable of running Section 32 the way it needs to be run the new Intelligence Unit breaks down as follows:
- General Thomas William Riker: Section 32's Field Leader. He receives the orders from Starfleet Command and carries them out. He also is considered Captain of Section 32's prototype stealth/cloak ship: The USS Yorktown. (The Yorktown is what Gene Roddenberry originally wanted to call the original Enterprise. Seemed fitting to use it here)
- Colonel Helena Stane: Member of Starfleets military branch. Originally a member of Section 31 she has vested interest in finding who killed her friends and punishing them. First Officer of Section 32 Unit.
- Lt Commander Wesley Crusher: First Officer of the USS Yorktown. He handles the day to day operations of Section 32's ship.
- Lt Commander Harry Kim: Operations officer of Yorktown, Second Officer.
- Lt Commander Nog: Chief Engineer of the USS Yorktown. He is often called upon to use his 'Feringi Connections' to assist Section 32.
- The Doctor: EMH program that serves as the Yorktowns Chief Medical Officer. (Doesn't have to be Robert Picardo, but if he's willing to do it then that would be cool. But if not a new actor could be brought in to be the Doctor)
- Lt Salok Nedvek: USS Yorktown tactical/security officer. A female Romulan national who was recruited by Starfleet Intelligence following the collapse of the Romulan Empire. She hopes to find her missing family and stop the Klingons from destroying whats left of her people.
- Lt Orion Angeles: Navigator of USS Yorktown.
- Elim Garek: Former member of the Cardassian Obsidian Order, he is brought onto Section 32 at the request of Captain Worf as Worf feels Gareks previous experience as a member of the Order will help Section 32 get on track and become the secretive organization it must be to eliminate the enemies of the Federation. Garek is not a permanent member of the team and comes and goes as he pleases, often going on undercover research missions for Section 32.
- Admiral Janeway: Member of Starfleet Command overseeing Section 32 operations.
- Captain Worf: Member of Starfleet Security helping to oversee Section 32.
- Sela: Former Romulan Commander who joins up with Starfleet Intelligence following the collapse of the Romulan Empire and the Klingon Invasion.
- The Traveller: mysterious alien who is a close friend and ally to Wesley Crusher, who assists when called upon.
