Actually I wasn't refering to continuity. I was talking more about how a story is told and what aspects and elements are included and introduced. TAS, TMP and TNG built on what TOS had done while adding new elements to what existed. You can quibble on whether you liked it or not. DS9 added to what came before in its own way. Same as before. Even VOY and ENT tried to build on what came before even though overall I think they failed miserably. But JJ hasn't added anything but perhaps extra adrenalin. He actually subtracts any measure of substance. His effort makes ENT (a show I disdain overall) look like freaking rocket science in comparison. Trek XI plays to the general mindset that better Trek over the years has sought to refute.
