It isn't what I think that matters. It is a simple fact that many of the flaws in Abrams Trek are in abundance in other versions of the property.
Every artwork has flaws. That every artwork has flaws, however, does not mean that there are no significant flaws deserving of criticism (as flaws) in artworks.

It's simply tiresome to watch a group of people ignore forty years worth of flaws and claim Abrams has offended them because those very same flaws exist in his films.
Well, OK, but what does that have to do with the arguments I am making here?

The flaws are part of Trek's charm.
That some flaws are charming does not mean that all flaws are charming or that we cannot criticize Star Trek (old or new), because flaws are "charming."
