Darker? Please no, thanks. I would not want to watch that. One of the reasons I (and I think many other fans) like Star Trek is that it always presented a more or less hopefull and positive view of the future. Trek already has some scenes / episodes / movies where it went dark enough. I donīt think making a whole "dark" series to a great extent would be wise. For what itīs worth...I always saw ENT as already beeing "darker".
