For me, that was one step too far. Everything up till that point was right on the line of acceptability for a Star Trek movie. I am happy to let everything else go. The gaps in logic, playing loose with trek canon and treknology. Its the big, summer, blockbuster version of Star Trek. As long as it's a great ride I'm not going to be too hard on it. Even the scene itself - I don't mind the idea of riffing on the original scene but to copy it word for word? Its hard to feel emotionally involved in a scene while at the same time replaying wrath of khan in your head. And then, "the line". About 3 months ago I went to a screening of Wrath of Khan and whilst it was a friendly croud, there were plenty of people who I'm not sure were Star Trek fans laughing ironically during Kirk's "Khaaaaaaan!". Laughing. Laughing out loud. This may happen again. Only this time, it might be us. I honestly didn't know whether to laugh or cry. They took a risk, and for me it was too much. I enjoyed the film. I liked a lot of it, but the final third and this scene in particular left me cold. Sorry JJ. This was a mistake.
