People nowadays expect a stong element of action and space battles in their Sci-Fi. Probably due to the success of Star Wars. Whether or not this is a good or bad thing, depends on how it is done. Roddenbery had a lot of action in TOS by the way, battles with Klingons Romulans, fist fights, Redshirts buying it every other episode, quite violent really.
Believe it or not, you're actually agreeing with me. You, sir, are absolutely right. Now, why can't we look at all that and be more forgiving of Abrams? Why is everyone flinging poo at Abrams like angry chimps?
