Um, TOS was not "Teflon Star Trek ", I mean they had Kirk turn a prewarp planet into Vietnam 2.0 for pete's sake. Heck I like DS9 becuase it was more like TOS.

I'm not against the darker tones of Star Trek, DS9 being my favourite. But I don't like the bending and bashing on the established Star Trek canon just to make more bugs out of c-store-pew-pew things.
I would have perfered a Cold War set up with the klingons myself.

This is one of the reasons why my 2409 Fed alt. is Kirk-like.
