tiferet: Vulcan Sylar should not eat brains (green meat isn't good for you Gabriel)

If you loved Gene Roddenberry's optimistic vision of the future in which humanity as a whole (individual exceptions not withstanding) had evolved beyond petty greed and there were not just one or two, but an entire fleet of starships exploring a universe with diverse crews of men and women of all human races and many alien species acting as equals and working together to improve their understanding of the universe and its mysteries, you will not care for this reimagined Trek where the Federation is rife with corruption, Starfleet is run by a handful of middle-aged white male humans and crewed by unsupervised teens of all ages, Uhura is reduced to spending her time alternately enraging and comforting men, Carol Marcus is an incompetent damsel in distress, Kirk beats up prisoners and Spock can't stop crying. Khan's new backstory makes him almost sympathetic by comparison. Darker and 'edgier' is NOT ALWAYS BETTER.
