Re: What does 'nu' mean?

It's not goddamned important.

No one here gets to vote on it anyway.

Original Trek fans objected to "TOS" for ages (I was there, go ahead and argue the point). It didn't make one bit of difference - TOS it is.

People are calling the movies nuTrek, the Abramsverse, all manner of things. It'll shake out however it shakes out.

As for acronyms - on the teensy-weensy change that anyone would ever call the new movies TFR it wouldn't make a fucking bit of difference than some fans use that to refer to a licensed novel published thirty years ago, since even most people who know what Star Trek is have never heard of the book and would not give a fuck.
