Orci and Kurtzman are often hired to work on reboots and as their movies make money they will probably continue to work along these lines. You really gotta blame the audience, if they don't mind fairly generic story-telling and blunt copy&paste jobs (although I predicted the Khan hat-trick and had a low opinion of O&K after ST09 I nonetheless did not expect STID to be such a mess of a story) these guys will continue to write low-quality scripts.
Until people realize that O&K style reboots have more to do with rehashing old stories and destroying the soul of the original (TWOK was different than TOS but nonetheless stayed true to its core, TNG was different to classical Trek but nonetheless stayed true to its core) than with genuine innovation Hollywood will continue to produce crap.
