I agree with your assessment of the new movies, they just use some familiar elements but ignore Trek's principles, bones without spirit. That's precisely why ST09 feels a bit like Galaxy Quest despite not being a parody.

What I mean with radical cut is getting rid of continuity and the big cosmos, to get back to the empty galaxy & final frontier roots of TOS and TNG, not to change the texture and the background atmosphere of Trek like Abrams and Co have done.
