Well I think you're way overestimating the esteem that Trek is held in. Much of the press surrounding Trek 09 was incredulous that Abrams was able to revive such a moribund and tired property and make it fun and watchable again. Whatever 'highbrow' credit that Trek had was spent a long, long time ago.
