It may sound like a good idea to keep it traditional, to keep it in the family so to speak, but after a couple of generations of inbreeding, your Star Trek doesn't so much resembles Star Trek as cousin Bert, the hideously deformed midget who lives in the cupboard in a pool of piss and dribble, smelling like a deranged monkey and waiting for the first occasion to go outside and tear people's throats with his four good teeth.
Regurgitate Abrams' hum-drum spin as much as you like, it still won't sound like anything but an excuse to make Star Trek more bland and colourless. It doesn't kill my earnest belief that the more strategic submarine-esque combat was more interesting as it didn't resemble all the other big franchise's space battles.
Strategic? In scriptwriting terms, phasers and photon torpedoes are interchangable. There are no special tactics besides sitting across from each other and flinging salvos. One might say submarine, but I think frigate or galleon.
