Re: STiD, Kirk and the Abrams Team

So it seems STiD might have some redeeming qualities. That's positive.

Consider this. I believe a number of people here expressed this:

And most importantly, shouldn't we expect a Trek production to reflect its original intent? I expect a movie to at least reflect SOMETHING of the original ideology. To me, STiD failed miserably in this area. Therefore ,it isn't the real Trek in my opinion. Merely a reflection of its look, its feel. Anotherwards, it is a dramatist's view which is enjoyable but unbelievable; a real space opera... You are right. JJ did his best. Does that mean I have to swallow it whole? And who said the movie had to be perfect? The TV show wasn't, why should one expect it of the movie? Maybe a few fanatics, but the majority of us just want the real thing. And I wouldn't worry too much about what JJ and the makers think. They're rolling in the bucks, and success has made them content to start another... And I am happy for those who were satisfied with STiD and got some type of deep meaning from it. Myself, I hope the next film will try and do a little more justice to its creator by expressing its original message.
ETA:

It looked like Trek and it smelled like Trek, but it definitely did not taste like Trek.
