One of my favorite things about Star Trek has been the variety it supports. Episodes have been done in every genre imaginable. Comedy, drama, tragedy, thriller, murder mystery, romance, fantasy, film noir, war movie, lounge musical, vacation hijinks, James Bond, black-and-white sci-fi serial, baseball movie, etc. The thing I've probably missed the most in the streaming era is that these serialized shows don't play around with genre & subject in the way the more episodic earlier series did. Though, a modern serialized show with a short episode order can't really be expected to do that. They lack the space for it. Now, we need an entire additional series to have Trek in a different form. I've also recently been revisiting TOS, TAS, and the original cast movies, and it really has highlighted for me how COMPLETELY different all three of these entities were, despite sharing the same cast. So, from my perspective, I wouldn't say they're taking canon away from something it's not. I would say they're restoring a treasured quality of canon that has been otherwise absent in the streaming era.
