I think it would fit in fine as a series that has a mix of single- and multi-episode stories as well as a mix of action, drama, with occasional moments of humor, horror, and tragedy. It can be frequently serious, but also frequently fun. On thing I don't think it should be is something that's dark, dreary, and filled with self-serving, sex-crazed, or petty a-hole characters--that kind of stuff can be done in moderation, but I think the core of Trek is a future that we'd like to be in rather than not with different aspects that appeal to both adults and even kids.
Sure I would agree with that, I don't think it should be Game of Thrones in Space, but it should still try to be a modern TV show, rather then trying to be a show from the 60s or 80s.
It can't be even if it tried since it's no longer the 60s or the 80s, but the majority of "modern TV shows" still follow a similar format.
