The new movie was successful because it catered to non fans and casual viewers. It's no more complex than that.
In other words, they played to the general public's preconceptions of what Star Trek was all about, so not a lot of foreknowledge was necessary.

If anything, actually knowing something about Star Trek was likely to be more of a detriment than a help.
I disagree with this analysis. Star Wars was more financially successful and has more followers. This remade Star Trek as Star Wars.
