Okay, call it a remake. Call it a reboot. Or just call it Star Trek. What difference does it make?
When people use different words to describe the same old thing in a new way, you have to wonder why they're doing that; what they're trying to hide behind or disguise.
To my knowledge, it's fans
who insist on making distinctions with the word "reboot" or "remake." I don't remember any of the filmmakers of the last two Trek films calling the movies anything other than, simply, Star Trek.
Star Trek, Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise have seeped into our culture. Star Trek is going to be rebooted again and again; it should be to keep it alive and kicking.
