3. Utopia bores me. If I could go back in time, I'd do my damnedest to try to convince the TNG writing staff how the whole "Federation as Utopia" and "moneyless economy" ideas of S1 are so bad for storytelling that, regardless of their source, they need to be ejected.
I agree with this statement.

Any good dramatic series needs conflict. DS9 had it the best example of dramatic Trek. During the war, the Starfleet officers had to choose between their morals and complete annihilation.

No one (or almost no one) wants to watch a show where everything is perfect and characters laud their morals over the viewer.
