Good, annother fan of darker storylines. Just what I'm pushing for.
Then go watch Battlestar Galactica (2003)
, I want Trek to be about a positive future, not one where everyone hates everyone.
Yea, darker stories, doesn't necessarily need to be doom and gloom (Babylon 5 and Deep Space Nine, as well as Enterprise had some very dark stories, but, never sank into doom and gloom).
Doom and gloom, the way I interpret it, is just depressing, everyone's an asshole, there's never any hope it's just non-stop hopelessness.
Doom and Gloom was fine for NuBSG, and could be fine for another show in the future, but, it goes against everything Star Trek stands for, which is building a better future and hope for Humanity.
