By that standard, STiD didn't feel like a retelling of WoK to me.
The question is, would you have pitched a story like that and felt good about it?
STiD is the most unoriginal piece of work I have heard of in recent times.
You're talking to somebody who managed to get three books out of Khan. I ain't throwing stones.
And I was mostly just addressing the "is it a remake?" issue.
Honestly, TMP strikes me as more a remake of "The Changeling" than the new movie is a remake of Khan.
