The Glorious Heritage Class Cruisers have these things called battle blades. Hopefully it might be possible to make the ships extend the Battle Blades while in fight. Basically the Battle Blades extend all they way around Andromeda and the Pax.
Another goal i hope to reach is to replace the jump holes with slipstream routes. Slipstream was the main way of travel in Andromeda and you can move from one side of a galaxy to the far side in just seconds.
I also hope for there to be three time lines. The past being about Dylan before the long night and The Systems Common Wealth fell. The present being about trying to restore The Systems Common Wealth and peace and harmony returning to the universe. Finally the Future. It will be about Dylan and his crews time in the Seffra system trying to survive, regain trust in Dylan, repair Andromeda, save the people from appending doom, and manage to get back to the Known Worlds.
All of the Time Line features are based right out of the show its self.
