Fan visions? Fan desires?
A thousand different Star Trek fans had a thousand different visions of the 22nd century before Enterprise
Enterprise bent established canon from time to time, but never broke it outright. Your imagination is not canon.
And I'm sorry you feel later TNG episodes didn't hold up as well as later TOS episodes.
I guess you can't compare Lower Decks
and All Good Things
to masterpieces like Spock's Brain
and The Lights of Zetar.
