Re: Exploring a darker theme in a future star trek series

Compare those episodes to any random episode of Deadwood and you'll see what I mean. Broadcast TV in the 60s (or today) wasn't allowed to do dark like cable does dark nowadays, not even remotely close.

Of course my point is not that Star Trek should be Deadwood. That's exactly what I don't think should, or needs to, happen. DS9 is about the right shade of darkness for Star Trek on cable. But in that context, it will look almost pollyanna-ish in comparison with the other shows on the same channel or just a click away.
