Re: Has JJ Abrams ever watched any star trek episodes or movie?s
I disagree. Enterprise's third season goes far darker than anything DS9 did. Earth is attacked, killing millions, Archer tortures an alien in an airlock, has a clone of his engineer made to harvest his organs, bombs an unarmed Xindi outpost from orbit, loses a third of this crew when the ship is nearly destroyed, T'Pol becomes an addict, Hoshi is captured, tortured and attempts suicide...
I still think TOS was the darkest of the Trek series.
