It is not a departure from the "Roddenberry vision" (whatever the hell that is).
It has Kirk, Spock, McCoy, et al, on the Starship Enterprise having adventures in space.
It has Klingons, Romulans, Vulcans and Orions, etc.
Sulu is at the helm, Chekov is at navigation, Uhura's at communications, and Scotty is nursin' his bairns.
I fail to see how any of that is a departure from "Roddenberry's vision". I mean, Roddenberry's not here to steal 50% of everyone elses profits, but that doesn't count...
