Really, the need to come to the Abrams forum to big up TOS in the face of nuTrek's success could be as easily and accurately described as "insecure.". It's a meaningless, vapid claim.
There does seem to be an excessive amount of tilting and windmills.
My favorite complaint about the Abrams films is from one poster (who I shall not name) who complained about the E-surance ads, saying Star Trek had never done such blatant promotional ads before.
Don't forget the person who insisted that the "real" James Kirk would never indulge in casual sex--and that Gene Roddenberry would have never stooped to including sex appeal and skimpy costumes in STAR TREK!

I admit my jaw dropped at that one. Had they even watched TOS?
