As such, star trek must adhere to some of these basic established parameters in order to be consider star trek, and not a parody of such or a namesake reboot that bears little similarity to the real thing.
Sorry, Trek Futurist, but you personally have no say as to what Star Trek must or must not do. That's not your call to make. It's also not your call to tell people that they are true fans or not, based solely on your own personal feelings about two movies.
Now if you want to state your own opinions as to whether the new movie was great or lousy, fine. We all do that. But to flat-out come in here and tell us all what we need to believe is crossing the line. I certainly hope a moderator comes along and sees this blatant attempt at flaming.
