I remember people trying to convince me the sequel would be a little more cerebral and the first was just to get people in interested in Star Trek again. Even the most action heavy of the original 10 had a commentary on humanity. If this means the end of Star Trek being a "rather talky geekfest" as Abrams puts it then I can write the franchise off as no longer relevant to my interests.
Terror, war zone, weapon of mass destruction, enemy from within...seems like a commentary on humanity of the last decade or so.
Especially given Orci's love for 9/11 or Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories.
Anyway, it's just a synopsis.
