Forget that characterization stuff. Lots of explosions and boobies will definitely make a future show a big hit.
You may think you're joking, but the younger audience gets off on this stuff (why do you think New Galactica was such a big hit? The "good writing and compelling characters"? PLEASE....
), and an ever younger audience in the future is bound to love it even more.
Hell, when my generation was younger (The TNG and DS9 years), TV execs thought that's what we liked, so they gave us Seven of Nine.
