While the Abrams-bashing continues, it might do well to point out that Paramount is making this film with hopes to make considerable profits on their investment... like every other Hollywood studio film made. Abrams was hired to direct the project.
What happens when TREK doesn't make money? TOS gets canceled. NEMESIS nearly kills the feature franchise.
The argument that this film is only being created to make dirty, nasty money is not only a false dilemma, it's a basic misunderstanding of how and why people make films.
Also, it's the lucky people who DO make money doing the work they love... because they can then afford to keep doing the work they love.
