Like you said, Star Trek has the Tal Shiar and Obsidian Order as a classic sci-fi tool of using aliens as a mirror to humanity. What's more is that those organization benefit from the lack of details and obscurity from a narrative perspective. I don't see how a show that will need to go into detail about a human equivalent of those amoral organizations is appealing.
...I think I just desperately want more DS9-style Trek in general.
