I gain a lot of hope for this because the Austin people went in to see TWOK, one of the most popular Treks, TV or movie, with the original actors and everything, got it switched for the reboot and still seem universally excited about it. I know if I paid to see my favorite Trek film on a big screen and got Nemesis instead, I would have been a little disappointed, premiere or not.

So that bodes well, I'd say.
J.J. Abrams thought he could pull it off, when this kind of publicity stunt never occured to Stuart Baird (and all the others behind him) back then in 2002...
You really have to admire this guy's self-confidence, his faith in what he thinks he can accomplish. There seems to be a little hint of nuKirk in J.J. Abrams... or is it the other way around?
