please do not start with excuses for bad storytelling...
Trek fans have been making excuses for bad storytelling since the 1960's.
That doesn't make it right!
So what?

It does make attempts to compare nuTrek unfavorably to oldTrek wrong on this score.

Frankly, someone could come along and produce an Oscar-winning Star Trek film that was internationally hailed as a masterpiece and knocked Avatar off to become the most successful film in history...and some trek fans would call it "an okay film but bad Star Trek" because it was different and didn't respect "canon."

(Okay, that's obviously a hypothetical - I don't think anyone could produce an Oscar-caliber Trek movie.)
