Call me a populist, but when did we decide that STAR TREK is some sort of elitist thing that's too good for the hoi polloi?
Probably when "the masses" stole our lunch money when we were eleven years old, I'd say.
You're probably onto something there. I suspect that some of us still have an "Us" versus "Them" mentality dating back to grade school . . . but there's no reason STAR TREK has to be hobbled by our playground traumas.
That "the general audience (the masses) won't get it" thing comes straight from Abrams & Co. and nobody else. Blame them.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
