Just convinces me more than I already suspected...
It started with VOY on UPN and then ran thru to the end of ENT--Star Trek became a product, merchandise, a vehicle for income, bereft of creativity or enthusiasm on the part of the suits.
I know television production is a money-making business, and execs aren't in it for the artistry.
But still... there are plenty of studios and execs with some kind of creative sense or passion for the material.
Clearly, at the end here... it was worse than I feared.
