Bad Robot not know how to design Federation starships?
Some fans: "We want something new."

Is this any different to Reliant in ST II having a roll bar. And its nacelles underneath?
Yes, it's very different. It's supid and illogical.

But Kirk in the movie is nearly a decade younger than in the series. Surely people mature from their mid-twenties to their mid-thirties (at least in theory).
Ha! Yeah. Again, this just personal preference.

Compare the 1971 Gene Wilder Wonka, fully-formed, magical, archetypal really, to the recent Johnny Depp Wonka where we're shown his upbringing and how he got messed up by his father. Now he's one of us, messed-up with psychodrama baggage. I guess I like things a bit more mythical? Maybe it's just that I want things the way they were (like 1971 when seeing Trek as a kid).

Definitely ymmv, and best wishes to all whose does.

I understand the appeal of "the way things were" (I am an historian by profession). My favourite film director is Alfred Hitchcock and I've spent probably too much money amassing a collection of his films (including buying separate releases of the same film in order to get the substantial extras for each--usually I don't bother too much with extras). I also love old Bogart movies and old westerns and old film noir.

On the other hand, I also have a great appreciation for current movies and I don't often find myself wishing for something new to resemble something "classic". I simply grab a classic title off my shelf when I get a hankering for "the way it used to be".

Obviously, everyone has their own preferences and wants and that's fine. Perhaps I'm simply easy to please when it comes to movies (though I do think Blair Witch style "found footage" movies are a bad idea in principle, so I avoid them like the plague--though I know some people love them. Different strokes…).

I never got the sense - in the 79 anyway - that Kirk was young rebel troubling the grown ups. The punky rebel trope.
And yet, almost every time we see young Kirk in a Star Trek tie-in novel or comic, over many decades of tie-ins, he's a "young rebel troubling the grown ups".

I thought the 3D looked awful in the announcement trailer I saw with OZ, very concerned about the film now.

But isn't that more a reinterpretation of the character based on the events of The Wrath of Khan/The Search for Spock?

3D looks awful anyway. Except for Avatar, but that had the advantage of fifteen fucking years spent on its production.

Re: Trek Trailer with OZ

The 3D looked great with the nine minutes in IMAX.

Still, it wouldn't be a big skiffy movie if someone online didn't pronounce themselves "worried" over a trailer. Why the hell "worry" about a movie? It's for fun.

Re: Trek Trailer with OZ

This is Star Trek. Our blood and our breath, our childhood and our home. We have every right to be worried if everything isn't just so, just right. Like long talky scenes filmed in proper stage theatre manner, none of this shaky cam, lens flared action raves where everyone is constantly talking over each other.

Okay, in all seriousness, during my recent re-watching of Trek XI (first one since 2009) I did find the fact that everyone was talking over each other all the time really annoying.

Boo fucking hoo. So ya don't like realism when it comes to the way people talk. Figures.

You'll probably want to skip His Girl Friday, then - they talk over each other all the time in that one.

^^^^^^
Or, the movie M*A*S*H, where they not only talk over each other, they do it quickly and there's often more than one funny thing being said by more than one character at the same time.

Human interaction is complicated and confusing.
