I love Kirk, Spock and McCoy but they're not all Star Trek is and can be. Two of those characters aren't even in
The Cage. Star Trek is more than those characters to me and many others. Not to the general audience sure, but they always think most famous = best and should be ignored if we're talking quality and not ticket sales.
I want Trek to evolve and be progressive. Not to be set back 40+ years. I wanna see where the Trek universe was a generation after Nemesis
