IMO, one of subtle differences in the 4th season's story-telling was to not either run a plot- or character focused show like it was usual in the Berman/Braga times but to bring all characters into it.
One of the problems in the hypothetical 5th season might have been the over-reliance on TOS homage and no-exploring. The Enterprise was nearly always in Earth's vicinity and if she ventured into Andorian or Klingon space she was back on Earth in the next show. That helped to tell the stories involving the forming of the Coalition of Planets but it lacked the 'exploring-being-all-alone-out-there' spirit TOS and TNG and ENT in its earlier seasons had.
