Yeah I'm pumped for this
I love Black Mirror and I love Trek what could go wrong?
Nah but I've never seen an episode of Black Mirror I didn't enjoy, some of them were kinda dumb but they were all executed and acted well

I can't see this going wrong honestly.

I'm being sincere. This should be awesome.

It could be a pretty good episode if it's executed well. Black Mirror is a cool anthology series and Charlie Brooker has a good mind for taking sci-fi elements and incorporating it into a possible future that we may one day experience.

I think there's only a couple of twists you can make without outright jumping outside the star trek premise.

Things go wrong and episodes of star trek frequently explore the aftermath. The ship where everyone DID die of space drunk. The one where the crew were wiped out and only a kid was saved by Data etc. Star Trek isn't a hellscape but starfleet frequently works on the bleeding edge, as has been said elsewhere, humans are Doc Brown in star trek. Humans advance rapidly and come up with ideas that take other cultures centuries and we do it in decades I wouldn't be surprised if the other races helpingreduced our catastrophic failure rate massively and our progress rate slightly. Anyway the point is that you've got billions and billions of people, probably tens of billions just from humanity (I imagine all those colonies are new and fresh and so don't suffer first world malaise so while earth probably stopped at 10 billion there's dozens maybe hundreds of worlds with thousands or millions of people on by TNG) and then you have all the other hundreds of races so when a few thousand die in mad science that's nothing. But still a few thousand are going to die to mad science every year and that's a lot of space horror in absolute terms.

Callister could just be a standard Oberth class tbh.
