Re: The strong link between 70s/80s Trek literature & JJ Abrams Star T

That was my initial reaction, and someone said to me recently that 'your first reaction was probably the best'.

But, it seems they did put some thought into how they wanted to portray the new universe, and they chose to go with a more 'retro-Trek' feel, lifting ideas directly out of earlier novels, rather than the post-90s feel (frankly, I enjoy what happened to Trek post-TNG less and less).

We will just have to see if the next movie reveals more of a 'vision', or if it was just commercialism all along.
