I would want them to keep the show as grounded as they can with the way people act now. The last movie did a great job of showing people as the flawed, human, and highly interesting.

That was the greatest sin of TNG, Voyager, and to a lesser degree DS9 - the people were so darn 'perfect' that they really were boring. Enterprise tried to show people as a little more edgy, and flawed
Nah, the whole "flawed anti-hero" nonsense is played out. Run into the ground until TV has become unwatchable in fact.

What we need is to get back to telling stories about heroes. Maybe not the "perfect people" that everybody bitches about (although, since TNG was the ONLY show that had this, I don't understand why everybody bitches about it. TNG must had had an enormus impact on everybody. And , it IS a perfectly valid storytelling tool), but heroes as seen in TOS and the original Battlestar Galactica.

That would be good.
