Paramount has just hired you, due to your intense hatred of lens flares and JJ Abrams decision making, to replace JJ Abrams as head of the new Star Trek to follow Into Darkness.
You are free to reboot the series with whomever you feel is fit to play the roles of Kirk and Spock, or you can stick with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. But, Paramount wants you to post your casting ideas along with your plot synopsis.
Let's hear it! You're sick of Abrams, Kurtzman, Orci and Lindelof, let's hear YOUR ideas! You claim you can do better, Paramount is listening! Don't be shy!
As Abrams is a fine technical director, as the designs and effects work and so on seemed fine and as I think that all the actors played well in STXI I'd keep everybody and merely exchange the writers.
I'd also suggest to change the atmosphere between the movies, cut all the fanwank and avoid too much of a connecting-the-dots, loose trilogy kind of storytelling.
