My response to the daily prompt titled Witness which asks;

Witness sounds like the name of some crime/cop show where they have to look after or protect the star witness in some important or maybe they have to solve the murder of a witness in an important case.
In fact you know without even bothering to look it up because it’s too hot I bet there is some crime/cop/detective show based around this idea. Isn’t there a show called ‘Silent Witness’? I’m getting bored with the number of crime/detective shows that there are at the moment.
We need more sci-fi. I’ll even settle for a detective show set in a sci-fi environment, like ‘Space Precinct’ remember that? I used to love that show as a kid. We need more shows like that.
I’ve always wanted a Star Trek series that followed one of the security teams on a Star Base or planet and just the everyday security things they have to deal with. Stopping people bringing alien plants and wildlife onto a planet, smashing crime rings, smuggling of illegal tech. Normal(ish) police work stuff but in the world of Star Trek.
