Re: Star Trek [TOS] is Cheesy!
Agreed. TOS elevated sci-fi for many of us to where real stories about real issues could be told.
ST09 comes at a time when our perceptions of good and evil are a little blurred. It has been exploited by Firefly and BSG and Star Trek will be making a grave error if they try doing things the old way.
