This is opposed to the tone of the original series in which we find in the episode immediately following the destruction of the Colonies Starbuck and the gang partying down and having fun on a casino planet (well, at least until they start getting eaten....!).
Yeah.... that's why I could never get into the original. I watched that casino planet episode and decided to give up. I'm too young to have a "nostalgia" factor with that show.
But then again, ST:TOS bores me, too. I enjoy the movies with the original cast, but some of the TOS episodes just drone on and on and on...
