It's still Star Trek, and it's still good in its own way.
But it's making me hope we someday get a show produced by people who really loved Star Trek. Particularly TNG-era Star Trek. I've seen more than enough fucking Tribbles at this point in my life.
Ever since Abrams came along, they've been trying to merge the campy TOS-era sensibilities with the gritty action that the studios think the people want (and which DS9 did better than they're doing now, anyway).
TNG wasn't generally great, cerebral sci-fi, but at least it aspired to it and reached it surprisingly often, as did DS9, Enterprise, and (kinda) Voyager. There's gotta be a place for that kind of thing in the modern, atomized world of streaming television.
