They should go post Next-Gen IMO.

So far they've adhered more or less to a rule that for every year that passes in real life one year passes in the Next Generation timeline.

By that rule, if a series were launched in 2014 it would take place circa 2391, sixteen years after the end of the Dominion War. That's enough time for plenty of changes and developments to have taken place. By that time the Klingon Empire should be fully recovered, Cardassia may have been absorbed into the Federation, and the Romulans might be in the same position that the Klingons were at the beginning of TNG, cautious allies with the Federation. The only question is who the main adversary might be. Stargate Universe was an object lesson in how difficult it is to keep a space opera series afloat without one.

Or both? What would Next Gen and DS9 be like in the alternate timeline?

I imagine without the Romulans around then the whole political situation would be different. Maybe the Breen or the Tholians would have absorbed their territory and thus become Starfleet's nemesis.

Edit: Or did the destruction of Romulus come after the events of TNG in that timeline?

I thought Romulus was destroyed in the mainstream timeline future (Spock was an old Ambassador, so it was TNG Era), and Nero attacked Spock's ship near the artificial blackhole created by red matter which sent both their ships back in time, and the divergence is caused by Nero's actions in the past (attacking the Klingons with his gigantic ship, killing Kirk's father, destroying Vulcan, Spock's mother's death)? I believe in the new timeline Romulus should still exist, actually.

That is an interesting point for consideration: if Romulus was destroyed in the main timeline then a future show set in the main timeline would have to exist without the Romulans as a major player. Kind of a bummer--after DS9 and Nemesis the Romulans were finally starting to forge friendly ties with the Federation and there was hope for internal change in the empire.

That still brings up the question of who would be the main badguy. The Dominion is a non-threat now, the Borg are in shambles (right? I haven't watched all of Voyager, I just remember reading that by the end of the series their threat to the Federation is neutralized), and to make the Klingons enemies again would be like pressing an idiotic reset button (besides, Klingons are much more interesting as temperamental allies/brutish anti-heroes than as villains).

The Tholians might be good archvillains.

The more I watch enterprise, the more I like it and it's the opposite with next gen. It's the first show since TOS that just abruptly ended without a reasonable conclusion, and right when it was starting to get good too.

Oh and the finale sucked.

I guess Enterprise in canon to both timelines. Nimoy/Shatner's and Quinto/Pine's.

I was looking on Memory Alpha, and apparently had the show gotten a 5th season the writers would have had Shran join the crew. I'm not sure what his position would have been, considering the roles he'd be most qualified for (Tactical Officer and First Officer) are already taken by Reed and T'Pol respectively, but that would have been awesome.

The Romulans have an empire. I don't think the lost of two planets, even if they are the imperial home worlds would mean the end of them being a major power in post-Voyager show. I mean they always seem to be one step ahead of the Federation. Hell, the Federation was formed basically to afford everyone in our near galactic neighborhood protection from the Empire.

They have many planets, but the loss of the homeworld and the destruction of the Romulan government would mean a clean slate. Suddenly no one has authority over anyone else and everyone starts looking out for themselves.

I know it was a fake recording made by the Federation, but what "Weyoun" said in In the Pale Moonlight is probably close to the truth: if Romulus falls then the empire's other systems will look out for themselves.
