I don't agree with everything that was done, but they tried to make a new series out of it.
I was glad it was NOT a rehash of TOS, but the Trek universe has evolved over the last 40 years. I figured this movie would at least take some aspects (design) from ENT and build on them. Why change phasers? Why make them a "pew, pew, pew" handgun? Was it simply to satisfy the action pop-corn movie goer? Is pew, pew, pew somehow "cooler" than beam type phasers? When I watched NuTrek, I got the feeling JJ wanted to make this movie less "nerdy" and very simple minded. He figured he had to get rid of EVERYTHING that made Trek familiar.
