Trek XI: A Romulan miner blows up a planet after he somehow finds himself in the past after his home planet is destroyed via natural causes in the future after the person who did everything he could to save his planet fails to save the planet.
Er, yeah. He's pissed at Spock because Spock didn't save Romulus from destruction, and now he's trapped 200 years in the past because of Spock, and he wants to make Spock suffer by doing the same thing to his planet that happened to Romulus. So Nero's anger doesn't make sense to you, why?

Oh, and he also wants to blow up Earth for some reason.
Nero made it quite clear why he wants to blow up Earth. He told his reasoning to Pike when he abducted him. Were you in the movie theater bathroom during that scene?

This is an entire cast and any emotional dynamic is built on our memories of other people, whereas they devoted the first entire two Bond movies making us care about Bond and M.
Maybe you arrived in the cinema ten minutes late, because the masterful opening sequence of ST (2009) even made us care about Robau, George Kirk and wife, Winona. Powerful stuff!

The Spock/Uhura material was also both fresh and an emotional ride.

Star Trek needed a reboot. They had a great chance to do so in 1987, but unfortunately screwed it up.

It seems to me JJ's only concern with his new movies is to get more cash and he doesn't seem too shy about letting you know that. His loyalty is not to the fans, it is to his wallet.
That's not in any way an accurate description of anything Abrams has said, so it's rather peculiar how that could "seem to you" to be the case.
People keep remembering this Roddenberry...



But this is the Roddenberry that created and ran Trek...



My awesome photoshop skills at work!
This is has given me the courage to post up something that I made a few months ago:

With the divine rays of light only pointing toward the ground and the fuzzy rocks around his feet, it looks like a bunch of tribbles are trying to lasso Roddenjesus (or do we prefer Jesusberry?). Oddly appropriate.

Replace the sheep with sehlat and rocks with tribbles and you've got a winner.

Oh, and the little girl he's touching needs a bigger rack. Gene likes his women curvy!

There is always "Eugene H. Christ".

"Jesusberry" sounds like a place upscale Christians would go to get frozen yogurt.

And the background should be Vasquez Rocks.

Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

You are all blasphemers. This is not the way of Roddenberry. His is a world without hate, without fear, without conflict, no war, no disease, no crime, no snark. None of the ancient evils. You will be absorbed. You will find contentment and experience the absolute good.
