DS9 is one of my favorite television shows. But it's weak point was when it tried to be mystic and philosophical. That's hard for anyone to do, and DS9 just had talents elsewhere. When it showed heart and feeling, like "The Visitor" it was at its best, or even those negative emotions that are just as relevant, as in "For the Uniform" TNG had its own such moments like "The Inner Light." But I cannot recall a single philosophical episode that really interested me. Discovery has had one season. Give it time, I think. The Abrams movies are designed to be thrilling and fun, and to me at least, the succeed in that way. The best of ST movies always are thrilling and fun. They aren't about being sending a poignant message that no one ever thought of before like "nuclear war is bad, ok?" or "let's not be so racist" or the ever important "evil superclones are people too" and certainly not, "that hypergiant energy cloud coming to kill you MIGHT be the child you yourself created". The ponderous philosophical stuff doesn't sell popcorn and it hasn't lead to a single good ST movie, in my opinion.
