Let's see nuTrek take 8 times its budget like Wrath of Khan did...
I bought a two dollar scratch-off ticket last month and won ten dollars.
Five times as much as I invested!
It's still only ten bucks.
Yeah, except Wrath of Khan made $80 million profit at the box office, which in today's dollars is around $200 million - and at far less risk.
It's nice that you enjoyed the film and want to champion its cause, but you're being unnecessarily and inaccurately derisory to 'old Trek'. Why not just appreciate it on its own merits without needing to put other things down? It's such a tiresome attitude which really makes these forums quite unpleasant.

Janeway: A possibly dangerous anomaly that we know nothing about?
Kim: Yeah. I suppose we should steer clear.
Janeway: Ha! Good one, Ensign. Take us in, Mr. Paris.
