Come, come, Mr. Scott. Young minds, fresh ideas. Be tolerant.
The Excelsior did fail big time in that film.

Okay, call it a remake. Call it a reboot. Or just call it Star Trek. What difference does it make?
When people use different words to describe the same old thing in a new way, you have to wonder why they're doing that; what they're trying to hide behind or disguise. If you follow the money, the answer is usually there. Propaganda or truth: It's about learning the motivations behind things and staying informed to determine which.

While I believe that this is a good outlook to have on important matters in life, I do not believe it truly matters one iota when evaluating entertainment.

The only thing I evaluate with entertainment is whether or not I enjoyed it.

To my knowledge, it's fans who insist on making distinctions with the word "reboot" or "remake." I don't remember any of the filmmakers of the last two Trek films calling the movies anything other than, simply, Star Trek.

Star Trek, Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise have seeped into our culture. Star Trek is going to be rebooted again and again; it should be to keep it alive and kicking.

That's a good Roman philosophy.

Its a good life philosophy for stuff that truly doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. And a Star Trek movie truly doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

Isn't the purpose of a movie or a TV series to entertain?
