Pure shit still has a purity to it.

You still haven't address this "pure" nonsense. It's total bullshit ... or pure bullshit, as it were.
Exactly.
So it could ignite the fires of Hell itself on an orphanage, but if it's "pure" Trek it's a-ok?

To heck with tradition.
Lately, it seems to be a tradition to reboot anything, regardless of whether or not it makes sense.

People have been rebooting stories for millennia. So, yeah, it's traditional.

Why would sense have anything to do with it? Cents maybe. Its not like there's a waiting period or anything.

Simply because it doesn't "make sense" to a poster on the Internet doesn't mean it makes no sense from the POV of the property owners.

Perhaps B & B should taken a little longer with the Nemesis script and filming it?
Since Braga had nothing to do with Nemesis, there is no "B&B."

Since when do we want them to rush TREK movies out to hit some arbitrary release date?
That is the traditional way. And those movies were Pure.
Maybe the other B is for Brent.
