Then there's a pretty good portion of Star Trek that you don't like.

Alright fine. But out of universe that's not what this film was meant to be. It's supposed to be a sort of send off episode the same way "Generations" was. Yes, "Generations" kind of sucked, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a good idea.

This story is a good way to rope in those of us who are Trekkies and do appreciate Abrams linking this to the show in more ways than one. Oh, I do declare, it does seem that Mr. Abrams cares a little bit more about canon than we thought. Oh, my.
