But to its credit, Prime Trek did its best to keep that continuity - perhaps more than any other franchise.
That doesn't mean it's any good. Like I said before, it's all about why you watch Star Trek in the first place. First and foremost I want a good story. Keeping a continuity simply for the sake of continuity isn't enough. Continuity is there to serve the story. When Trek simply becomes a way to reinforce the delusion that a fictional universe is real, then maybe it's time to step back from Trek a while.

But my commentary was generally about lamenting "reboots," with a cynical swipe at Orwellian attempts to doublespeak "remake."
Okay, call it a remake. Call it a reboot. Or just call it Star Trek. What difference does it make?
