While I will wait to judge the NEXT movie before I declare Trek a sell out, this movie did a pretty good job of making that case a good one.
I've said in other threads that I think the whole debate depends on what Star Trek means to you as an individual and what you wanted/expected out of it. I got what I wanted because I feel the things that make Star Trek special to me were present in this movie in a way they haven't been in anything Trek related for a very long time.

Or perhaps because the economy is in the crapper and RL is stressful enough as it is, people just wanted a fun romp that offered some hope for the future? Something feel good. I sure as hell feel good whenever I see it!
