All Abrams and his writers had to do was a little fucking homework, but they chose not to. They pick-and-chose some familiar references and then dumped it in a mixer with steroids and when it was done they thought, "Hey, yeah! That looks good."
Then they try to sell it as a reboot of the franchise AND yet still connected to the original.
Uh, no...fucking...way. A director du jour
and a couple of hack writers do not a good Star Trek
make. They messed it up huge and so too damned bad. It makes Enterfake
look like genius.
Abramsverse is nothing like TOS even before
Nero shows up. That's fine for a reboot. But then we get a Spock that doesn't act like the Spock we know. This Spock doesn't remember the same things as the original TOS Spock. This nuSpock openly speaks of things about the future or a future that the original Spock never would have done. nuSpock doesn't even consider how he might go about setting things right.
Abrams can claim it's original Spock all he wants, and so can Nimoy, till the cows come home or the Earth's sun goes nova. But old nuSpock doesn't act like original Spock did and would. Ergo: it ain't original Spock. nuSpock is from somewhere else.
They've tried to retcon TOS since TNG and through DS9, the TNG films, VOY and most particularly ENT. ST09 is the latest salvo.
