I think they should just start fresh. Don't take any major ships or any major carry overs from TNG, DS9, or VOY and just start from scratch. The UFP covers a vast amount of 3 dimensional space and there are certainly other frontiers that non of the existing series have already touched.
They can certainly do like a mini-series of something from the past, or maybe small TV movies like what was done on Babylon 5, but the thing is that no matter how hard they try, there's always at least someone who will say that they're rewriting history. I mean personally with Enterprise, the only thing that I found to be more or less a definite rewrite is the Romulan cloaking device. The rest can actually be argued till the cows come home. Honestly, we're talking about a franchise that's repleat with inconsistencies.
How about this? they either show Riker's ship and command, or make up a completly new one! Like grab a new crew(i think some of them are getting tired of being asked 'we plan on a new movie. Could you star as ...') Maybe a new ship, or one just touched on, and have it a couple of years AFTER Nemisis(key word: after). and explore, as was what star trek was originally about
