So why do people complain about The Final Frontier, which in many ways was closer to the spirit of TOS, than any other movie, and The Motion Picture.
People nowadays expect a stong element of action and space battles in their Sci-Fi. Probably due to the success of Star Wars. Whether or not this is a good or bad thing, depends on how it is done. Roddenbery had a lot of action in TOS by the way, battles with Klingons Romulans, fist fights, Redshirts buying it every other episode, quite violent really.
