Thank the gods of good television that there were more people in charge of these stories than Gene.
Glad I'm not the only one. I don't get the blind Roddenberry-ideals worship. Yes, it's part of Star Trek, but for me it doesn't define it.

To me, Star Trek is any good SF story that fits in the greater Star Trek-universe that came before.

Is nuTrek real Trek? Yyyes.....but only just. It's very "style over substance", when it should be the opposite.
And wiping out the Prime-universe timeline still doesn't feel right. (yes, I know they say the old timeline still exists.)
Oh well, I guess I'm still in the Bargaining stage. I will reach Acceptance eventually

Also, I don't consider the Videogames and Novels real Trek. (I never read novels based on TV-shows or Movies. Feels too much like a cheap money grab to be worth my time.)
