You're the one that doesn't understand. I understand it perfectly--it's because not everyone likes the same things. It's as simple as that.
Ok, then. Let's not drop it. It's not as simple as that: I understand that people don't like the same things that I do.

Belz... you're basically arguing... I understand everyone doesn't like the same thing... but they should prefer the franchise to continue in the JJverse.
No, that's not what I'm saying.

EDIT: Since at least three people are misunderstanding me, I'm going to assume that I'm the one communicating poorly, so I'm going to have one last stab at it before bowing out.

Here's the original post:

Although it seems to me it would make a lot more sense just to go back to the prime universe, where Pike was captain of the Enterprise for years and Spock served with him.
Why are people so intent on returning to the old timeline ? We've been there for 40 years. Can't we move on, now ?
That I'm asking the question assumes that I know different people have differing opinions. Otherwise there'd be no point in asking unless I want to know why other people agree with me. So I clearly understand that. What I don't understand is why they hold this particular opinion. Answering what you did, CE, is a bit like this:

"Hey did you see the new Trek movie ?"
- Sure.
- And ?
- Hated it.
- Really ? Why ?
- Not everyone likes the same thing.
- Gee, thanks. That totally answers my question.

I was simply trying to understand the underlying reasons behind the poster's opinion. Telling me they have an opinion doesn't answer my question. But, on the odd chance that I didn't know they had an opinion that wasn't mine, your post was totally informative.

People don't like change. People like the old universe they grew up with. Don't try to over think it. It's as simple as that.
