Abrams ran out of Trek ideas after one film and had to recycle The Wrath of Khan for his second film. I think THAT says it all.
Other than the death scene (which was a clever use of their AU premise, IMO), how was it a remake any more than Man of Steel
was a remake of Superman II
? Characters are not stories. The Khan in ID was completely different to the Khan in WoK with different motivation (saving his people vs. revenge on Kirk) and the entire thing takes place under entirely different circumstances. How is the film a remake?
