In volume, for one.

From TNG premier till the end of ENT we had 20-50 televised episodes per year, plus 20ish novels.

Now we have about 12 novels a year.

It's of course true that Star Trek has always dealt with conflict, political turmoil, torture, terrorism and peril on the galactic scale, but for 5 of those stories one also had 50 other stories that dealt with more localized and lighter matters. So naturally the overall feel is perceived to be darker in recent years.
Dear Sir, I object very strongly to that last scene, and to the next letter.
