I am willing to give another prequel a shot, but only because it's a 13 episode, limited series. There can't really be an wandering around with the plot and running up against too many events, people and places. I think if they focus on one event, it could be ok.
I'm also interested in a main character who is not the captain - is she part of the command/senior staff or will this be a Lower Decks situation?
The only part of this that gave me a bit of a doubt was "new exciting aliens." I don't really want a bunch of CGI'd characters - I'm totally fine with humanoids with different noses and foreheads - there was even an explanation in the cannon for that! I'd be down with seeing some of the different aliens that we haven't really explored before - Andorians, Bolians, Orions, Benzite (sp?), but are part of the exsisting world. Not sure how I'd feel about a bunch of new species we'd never heard of before.
But, it's really all a lot of wait and see! I'm generally enthusiastic about this and I have liked Fuller in the past, so only time will tell.
