I've seen this posted a few times, and I'm not following. How does a transwarp transporter replace a starship? How does TB accomplish exploration? How does TB seek out new life and new civilizations? How does TB go where no man has gone before? Don't you need endpoint coordinates even for transwarp beaming? Finally, how does TB face and repel an aggressive invading species? Sorry, I just don't buy it. Sure, commercial transportation will be laying off jobs, but star fleet is much more than just a way to get from point A to point B.
A good example is Stargate. The Ancients had the network,but they still needed to send out explorers and seed ships to add planets to the network. It isn't enough to have the tech to get there, you have to know where you're going. Look what happened in ST09, Scotty nearly got killed when the TWBeamed onto the Enterprise.

LOL. In star trek memories Nimoy said "People always accused me of smiling." But he smiles several times. NuSpock needs to smile since he's a "little" more emotional.

nuSpock is the most passive-aggressive character in Trek history.

I once read a fan post something to the effect that "you know you're in it deep when Spock smiles"

Point is: Spock has never been played 100% emotionless. TMP made a point out of him returning Vulcan to get rid of his emotions; the testing computer in TVH even quizzes him on it.

Quinto's Spock is pretty on course for what we've seen in the past from Nimoy.

No one said he should be.

Quinto plays Spock as a super passive-aggressive human being. Okay, the script is responsible for a lot of that, but I'm sure Quinto could underplay it a bit so that it's not so over the top.

And I won't even bring up "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!" (Mostly, though, because I don't want you to counter with "THE WOMEN!!!")

The Khan thing is just silly in either universe; justified (maybe), but silly. And Quinto didn't throw himself into it enough to really sell it. It's one of Trek's ultimate over the top moments, you gotta go full Shatner or go home.

As I said, I don't see much difference in their portrayals. Quinto hits it's pretty close.

Re: My Greivences of Nutrek. What makes me a hater...

NuSpock also is younger and less experienced. He also saw his homeworld destroyed, his species nearly wiped out, his mother fall to her death right in front of him, and his friend die right in front of him. These are all things that Nimoy Spock never experienced. Sorry, but I'm not seeing the problem with him being more emotional, especially since old Spock was never emotionless to begin with.
