Who says that's what the new films are "supposed" to be? Maybe you
supposed this, and if the films don't meet your exact supposition you are disappointed?
I thought they were supposed to simply be reviving the franchise from its awful Voyager/Nemesis/Enterprise popularity slump and to start the franchise making big bucks again. That is my supposition and the films have done that - and more!
