Yeah, I wouldn't say it didn't have as much heart or anything like that, but it didn't seem to have as strong a theme as some of the others. And that's probably because they were trying to cram so much in. Hopefully the second movie will have a stronger one.

but getting away from Trek's awful pretentious preachiness and exclusionary (is that a word?) attitude was a GOOD thing. Star Trek was always meant for the general public to consume, even as far back as TOS. This is anb objective fact.
Being preachy or heavy handed doesn't really equate with failure since Avatar was hugely successful.
