The argument in favor of a reboot is dealt a serious blow I think when the writers have to resurrect scenes from a older movie to complete their new movie. The nature of a reboot is that it is original, as much as one can be original. Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is a complete reboot of the Joker-Batman dynamic, and it doesn't used scenes from Tim Burton's Batman to complete the film.
I think the general statement has been it was 75% a good movie and 25% rip-off.
The problem with That Scene being copied is that it is one of TWOK's most memorable scenes even among non-Trek fans. And aside from switching Kirk and Spock, it's practically copied exactly. Everyone I know is complaining about it, even casual fans.
