I wouldn't mind a different take on Star Trek I just wished it was as intelligent and well written as the original. Can you guys please tell me what about this movie made you think, because I just can't find it.
In fairness, this was more of an "entertaining" take than a "thinking man's" take. But that is not to say it was devoid of intelligence. It was not. But it did choose to put the emphasis elsewhere.

That said: a dead franchise which produces no movies will not be able to make either intelligent or entertaining Star Trek.

A movie which is entertaining and popular enough to allow Trek to live on, moving forward now has the chance to do both.

Simple math, really.
