For example, Robert Wise (a legendary talent) did not have a real feel for the material. The Motion Picture suffered because, despite his ability, he tried to overcome his unfamiliarity and disconnect by forcing it to transform into something it wasn't in order to make it more comfortable.
To be fair, TMP had far worse problems than Robert Wise's unfamiliarity with Star Trek.

Someone who isn't obsessed with lens flares and leading zeroes.
Wait a sec. What about the NX-01 and NX-02?
It isn't so much the zero itself as it is the pointlessness of inserting a leading zero to make a four digit number when Star Trek has had plenty of three digit registry numbers. By all canonical precedents, the Kelvin should have been NCC-514, not NCC-0514.
