To fully appreciate the movie, you did need knowledge of the franchise.
Isn't that a given? Isn't that what we want? New fans keen to learn what they'd missed?
When I saw 2009 I remember thinking, "wow, JJ really rewards long term fans as well as delivering a kick ass movie for total Trek newbs." I felt catered to, but not at the expense of the wider audience who were seeing the film without all that history.
