Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?
Personally, I would have much rather have had Abrams and Co. just call this relaunch of the franchise a flat-out re-boot without jumping through the hoops of having Nero change the timeline...
...But that's just me.
We're all adults. We can understand there being a re-telling of an old story in a new way, without there being an "in-universe" explanation for that new re-telling.
