If only there was some sort of precedence in the Star Trek universe for "former" cyborgs to regain their more human-like appearance.

Also, in a strange bit of synchronicity, I have 808 State queued up on my playlist, and "Ooops" was playing when I entered this thread - a song featuring Bjork.

So its gonna be an thinly veiled allegory about trampling individual rights in the pursuit of security, with a plucky young band of crusaders lead by a wise old soul from an earlier era.

Ugh.

If you don't like allegories to vaguely relevant Moral Philosophy 101 thought experiments, then you don't like Trek.

Thats TOS. TNG was a lot of classic stories dressed up in scifi guise.

TNG took the philosophy of TOS to the next level.  The very first episode dealt with the nature of life and whether we have the right to exploit and torture one living thing, very different in character to ourselves, to benefit a large number of people more similar to us.  There was an entire trial questioning whether an android could be alive, and whether that life entitled it to rights.  They agonized over the right of the crystalline entity to exist.  The Hugh episode itself was about the rights of the Borg to exist, both as individuals and as a collective, in spite of the existential threat they posed to the rest of the galaxy.  The central question of that episode was whether there was ever a justification for genocide.  Any episode dealing with the Prime Directive was a moral allegory, often attacking colonialism, debating the rights of self determination, or the freedoms of thought, speech or religion.  And it was almost always Picard who was TNG's moral standard bearer.

The first season reimagined a lot of old Trek, but after that, it only aped old Trek to the extent they were exploring similar basic moral questions in slightly different ways.  The central point remains, anybody who is bothered by moralizing in new Trek, starring the most moralizing moralist in the most moralizing version of a universe built for the purpose of moralizing, never really liked the old Trek.
