I think they're both pretty good. But Nolan's reboot also borrowed heavily from past comic reboots so again he didn't invent it all himself when Batman Begins came out.

I'd give him the kudos for getting rid of the gaudy Joel Schumacher efforts but he kinda took a lot of his tonal inspiration from existing Batman incarnations.

The Star Trek reboot is really decent enough. But as it's still starting out it inevitably doesn't have the breadth and depth that it's 43 year predecessor was able to amass.

It needs time to continue to develop itself (as TOS did) and no-one really knows how much time it will get in that regard.
