I don't know either, to be honest. BUTTT I don't feel misled by the filmmakers.

The basic context of the ST universe is still there...The Federation, The Enterprise (even it's profile, can you imagine if they had redone it to look like something out of Starship think you're ****ting a brick now??), the trio of Spock, Kirk and McCoy.

I suppose I am taking a glass half-full approach with 'canon'. I am looking at everything that they did keep consistent, despite some things being different. The other viewpoint, which I think you share, is looking at everything they aren't keeping consistent.

Not to say it could've been worse from a glass half-empty perspective, but it could have been a lot worse.

You guys should try being a little more optimistic until you at least see the entire film and then can make a judgement.
