For the love of God, if we HAVE to have an alternate Trek shoved down our throats, at least use it to do something COMPLETELY different! Don't crap on all the characters and stories from TOS. If you want a clean slate, damnit, use a clean slate! Hell, even a fanatic like me would likely wind up being sucked in at some point, if what is being presented is original and new. If it's all just overblown popcorn rehashing of beloved classics, the pain and anger will keep right on growing.
