The Enterprise crashing into water is something new! I want to see something new and different!
And hell it isn't even that new of a concept for Trek: from TNG through Voyager we've had starships crashing or hardlanding on planets a plenty. Even TOS had the Enterprise near crashing into the Earth at least once. JJ's take on the ideal just looks a lot, lot better--owing to new SFX techniques. And this time it looks more real, more "painful" to watch.

Watching the shots of the crash in the trailers makes me think (unlike the first movie and the TNG movies) this time around they get that the Enterprise is a character too and we need to feel happy when she wins and sad/mad when she's hurt and losing.

If you have to ask, then you can't possibly understand. Sorry.

Real Trek is a little tweeting bird chirping in a meadow. Real Trek is a wreath of pretty flowers which smell bad.

I am not against ST looking like a big budget hollywood flic, but "seek out new civilizations" has been replaced by "seek out new special effects" "seek out new underwear" etc.
Gene sought out lots of "new underwear"... plenty of scantily clad women in the TOS:

No doubt. The assertion that Star Trek hasn't used sexy, scantily clad ladies to sell their brand is beyond absurd.

You are in serious, serious denial if you believe otherwise.

It's a joke, son. Lighten up.

Stop working so hard at taking offense, and stop trying to make personal what doesn't need to be personal.

Trek is not changing, this is not trek.
Yes, it very much is Star Trek - and it's the only Star Trek, going forward, for quite a while. Future versions of Star Trek will incorporate this version and continue to evolve from it.

This is guaranteed, because this version is so enormously successful for the people who own Star Trek and who get to say what is, and what isn't, Star Trek.

Good points, I agree! I am a special effects jnkie and AI do not apologize for it. I think the new take on Trek looks great and if this movie is like the last it will have interesting characters with a good story to tell.

Real Star Trek is what one individual fan who has nothing to do whatsoever with the inner workings of actually making Star Trek believes to be the one and only true way of making Star Trek -- his own narrow way -- and that everyone else is completely wrong and doesn't get it.
