The level of emotional obliviousness displayed by Star Trek characters (for the convenience of moving the story along) would be laughed off the screen anywhere on cable nowadays except maybe on USA, which doesnt do sci fi, and SyFy, which barely does sci fi.
Wherever the next show ends up, it will almost certainly be someplace where the audience demands more emotional realism. That will be one change we'll see in the next series and I doubt it will be the only one.
Agreed. Changes are necessary because ST needs to adapt to modern TV.
To me, it's one of the most important things, having the characters actually feel the emotional impact of an event for more than the rest of the episode.
