Not for me - I don't want to see TNG back again. I want to see how the franchise can be shaped to the grownup cable market.
How does dark equate to grownup?

Funny thing I've noticed in all these "grownup" shows. The characters all invariably act like children. I'm forty years old, I just don't see how some nudity, violence, four-letter words and characters acting like spoiled children equates to being grownup?
Of course. Characters act like idiots because there's mature content in a show.

It's a stretch to predicate that since there is nudity, cursing, and violence, that the quality will automatically suffer. There is no direct relationship between the two.
STAR TREK: 1964-1965, 1966-1969, Jan. 21-23 1972, 1979-2001, 2003-2005, 2009-?
