Trek is nothing until someone defines it. If 18 years of Berman crap wasn't enough to kill it, nothing will. Now we have something akin to Riddick on a starship. It used to be about mind bending stories, but Trek is still an undefined ambigeous universe until it's done well.
Mind bending stories??????
Hey, I love Star Trek. It had some solid, very entertaining stories. But mind bending is not a phrase that leaps to mind when I think about the stories it told.
