Re: Was Star Trek 11 too similar to Star Wars?

It was my uninformed opinion that the majority of the nuTrek haters were fans more interested in the Treknicalities of Trek than the stories. Those for whom a reimagined and bigger Enterprise or a beer brewery engine room were deal breakers because they didn't fit with their established design perameters of Federation starships.

Although I suppose they may be TNG fans foremost, too - it was The Next Generation that cranked up the technobabble and marketed manuals detailing the workings of everything that established those design perameters in the first place. Then JJ Abrams comes along and rolls back to the technobabble-free, just-do-it-don't-explain-it attitude of The Original Series.
