I'm with reidw on this. TOS, TNG, DS9 (to a lesser extent), and VOY made it a point to show humanity had evolved and learned some lessons from the Eugenics Wars and WW III and was better. The characters on STD would be right at home on any of today's contemporary drama series. Show something different! The reboot films also suffer from similar issues. Pretty to look at, but the plots of the last two are paint-by-numbers yawnfests.
