Re: Earth's Role

Yeah, this is my least favorite aspect of new Star Trek. It's only been one film so far and hints about the next, but this quote seems to cement the geocentric nature of this version of the Federation and Starfleet.

In a way, the destruction of Vulcan in this timeline helped ensure that Earth would play a bigger role.

I haven't seen the 9 minute preview, but I'm curious to see if there's more of the vibe of exploration only given in the very end of the last film, when Nimoy came on to intone: "to boldly go where no one has gone before."
