The most important thing to me is the weaving of a story and the places it takes you. I find the best way to do this is with a liberal application of the things you don't see on screen. I give voices to the bridge technicians who silently do their job, to the nameless marine giving cover fire, to the inconspicuous scientist pushing buttons in the background and I let them tell their story by augmenting the characters we love in their world. Don't hate the nameless ones, without them the show would look very strange indeed.
