Re: STiD, Kirk and the Abrams Team

I wonder, why are you sharing these? This is not a snide remark, I'm just curious as to what you wish for us to do with them. Discuss them?

They have refused Roddenberry's vision - removed the subtle layerings of meaning of the original in favor of a "Star Wars* style action, complete with a nasty villain and blood.
Subtle layerings? Like these?

"Death, destruction, disease, horror. That's what war is all about, Anan. That's what makes it a thing to be avoided."
"How often mankind has wished for a world as peaceful and secure as the one Landru provided."
"Yes. And we never got it. Just lucky, I guess."
"We share the same history, the same heritage, the same lives. We're tied together beyond any untying. Man or woman, it makes no difference. We're human."
"We all have our darker side. We need it! It's half of what we are. It's not really ugly. It's human."
"Mankind has no need for gods. We find the one quite adequate."
"Maybe we weren't meant for paradise."
In TOS, the moral was often whammed into your face with a healthy side of phaser action.
