I suppose it's possible*. I just wonder if it isn't one of those things that the networks think
is an inevitability more "because of reasons" than because it's really true -- in the same way that they (falsely, it would seem) thought Star Trek Enterprise
shouldn't kill anybody too gorily or have dangerous transporters or use story arcs because prior Trek hadn't done so.
* How could claiming U.S.S. Enterprise
as a CBS trademark possibly work? Isn't it the name of multiple actual naval vessels and space vehicles? Doesn't seems to me like it should withstand a challenge...
