The Trek department at Paramount used to be able to get us a movie every 12-18 months on schedule and with good communication/feedback between studio and fans.
No, they didn't. BTW, there isn't and never was a "Trek department" at Paramount. Do you have any idea how studios and productions work?

That was a far superior situation to getting 1 move[sic] every what? 3-4 years with "super-duper-secret-squirrel" level cloak and dagger nonsense about even the smallest production details?
No, it wasn't.

How does that reflect good-faith communication with the fans on the part of the studio?
Who cares? The studio owes "fandom" nothing. If they make a movie that people want to see, they'll make good money. Abrams succeeded in that last time - succeeded to a far greater extent than most previous Trek producers and their movies - and there's every reason to expect him to repeat that success.
