"The weird thing," said Pegg, "and I think this goes for both 'Star Trek' and 'Doctor Who', is that neither of them are remakes."
"I often see 'Star Trek' being referred to as a remake, and it really isn't," Pegg continued. "It's another 'Star Trek' film; it's another movie in the series. It's the continuing mission."
I'm not certain I'd call it a remake, per se. But, it's not "another movie in the series," either.
If it were, then Abrams wouldn't have made such a big issue early on out of the fact that this movie is NOT "Star Trek XI," but rather simply "Star Trek."
