I'm serious in the question I'm asking: why? Why does it need to be more than that? Why does it need to be anything more than a fun romp?
Well, I prefer Star Trek when it makes me think. Just my own personal taste. I know there are fans that prefer it when it is frothy action-adventure but I'm not one of them. Any show could do that kind of stuff.

TNG was a huge phenomenon. Somebody had to think so if it got 4 Hollywood movies based on it.
As opposed to TOS, which got 9 movies and 5 television series based on it.
Wrong. The 4 TNG movies, DS9, VOY and ENT are all due to the success of TNG. DS9 is obviously a TNG spin-off.
And none of them would have existed without TOS.

There's a reason all of them were called "Star Trek", not "Random Space Station 9" or "Lost In Delta Quadrant".

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.
