Sure, we all have our views. But... in fiction, things can and will change, especially after 40 years. It isn't automatically better or worse for it.
All that's happened here is some fans weren't given what they
wanted, which they were never entitled to or owed to begin with. To listen to 3D Master
overstating things while patting each other on the back like nodding dogs, you'd think there was a real problem beyond their own personal disappointment.
There ain't. Star Trek
moved on, did something new, which it's allowed to do.
