While constant darkness was never a feature of the series (even through the lengthy Dominion War arc of DS9), it is important that we do have sufficient low points from which our federations and empires as well as heroes and villains can shine, express their moralities, or lack thereof and really define to us what Gene set out to portray.. that humanity at such low points of seeming despair could be better, could be more and could literally defy the odds by engaging in what makes us truly human. Our love of tacos.

Hopefully with more engaging content we can start to see more steps taken to tell these stories. Its probably felt like we have been "three years away from annihilation" all year now since we've been frozen in time with only bad news lingering.
