Sure it does. What they did--the liberties they took, the changes they made--trumps what they say they intened. I doubt Abrams, who never much liked Trek to begin with, cared either way.

I have no problem with reboots: I love that there are myriad Batmen and James Bonds. I just wish Trek had owned it rather than try to provide a ricketty and unconvincing bridge back to TOS. And I really wish it had ignored ENT entirely. We can't get a "Hey, Sam!" as Kirk speeds along but we can get Admiral Archer's prize beagle? I prefer my easter eggs not smell of sulphur.
Once every lifetime, we're swallowed by the whale.
