Star Trek - standard white guy
TNG - Bald guy
DS9 - African American
Voyager - Woman
Enterprise - Standard white guy
My guess would be the next one has a Latino in the lead.
Obviously there will again be one outsider character looking courisly at those humans (Spock, Data, Odo, the Doctor, the doctor)
One integrated character in a major support role (like Chekov in Star Trek, Chakotey in Voyager) - my guess.. maybe someone with a Chinese background
One integrated "alien" (Kira on DS9, Neelix on Voyager, Worf on TNG /DS9)... maybe a Cardassian...
The setting probably will be after TNG / DS9 / Voyager.. a bit more in the future.. but again on a ship within Federation space or at the border regions
I wonder if we'll live to see the next star trek, since they're making it "cool" again with that reboot. And those are just movies
