There was a lot of pressure from Paramount on VOY and ENT to try to copy the huge success of TNG and prop up UPN. That's why they often fell into rehashing TNG plots, instead of mining their own potentially interesting premises for stories. Its a shame Star Trek has been bereft of interesting sci-fi ideas for so long. I don't hate the JJ movies but they have continued a slide into action cliche's that started with the TNG films. While they are technically well made and well cast they pretty much follow the summer blockbuster formula of cashing in on a established brand name with a CGI destruction porn epic. Star Trek can be so much more and it pains me that no one involved in the franchise right now seems to understand that.
