Ah, hem. The "butthurt" chiming in here.

I think it's pretty safe to say that we're not pissed just disappointed.

Was there really a reason to pull those characters from TWOK?

Abrams didn't seem like he wanted to continue to grow the franchise, but merely take advantage of its successful moments and capitalize on it for his own benefit.

Disappointing.

Glad he went over to Star Wars.
The characters WEREN'T 'pulled from TWoK'; it was essentially a very different take on the TOS episode "Space Seed" - where Marcus and Section 31 found the SS Botany Bay instead of Kirk's crew and the Enterprise (about 10 or so years later to boot.)

Those who think it's a straight rip off of TWoK (IMO) didn't really bother to pay attention to the story being told in the film. Even substituting Admiral Marcus for Admiral Kirk isn't the same because Kahn of STiD had a VERY DIFFERENT relationship and motivation for his actions when compared tio the events in STII:TWoK.
