Not to mention the whole Klingon thing. Seriously why do waste time explaining this stuff just because of the anal Star Trek fans whine so much?
Generally, writers write the stories they wish they could read.
When writers choose not
to try "explaining this stuff", other
anal Star Trek fans whine. So the writers may as well keep writing what they want to read. And hope that it sells.

So stop buying them.
Are you saying that IDW should just ignore "Into Darkness" altogether? Not even try to put out comics that tie-in to Khan?
IDW is putting out "Into Darkness"-related mini-series. The "Nero" series did well for them after the 2009 series, AFAIK, better than many of their other IDW mini-series.
