I believe the story is central to the overall mythos of Trek. However, the technology and set/ship design takes a very close second. Character development, unfortunately, wasn't that big a deal in 1966. I would like to see the characters histories and backgrounds fleshed out more. But I, personally believe the technology and design of the ships and sets were central to making the stories work. Look at it this way, if this new bridge is so radically different in appearance to what came in TOS, how can the look of the bridge in episodes like TNG's "Relics", DS9's "Trials and Tribble-Ations", and ENT's "In A Mirror, Darkly" (USS Defiant), be explained? It looks like what this movie is going to do is re-invent Star Trek a'la' Battlestar Galactica and try to make the fans believe that the last 40 years of Star Trek history never actually happened. I hope that I'm wrong, but that is what it looks like to me.
