No, with this half-reboot they freed themselves from the shackles of continuity and yet can still use whatever they like from previous Trek. Furthermore it is a humble way to approach the franchise, they don't pretend that nothing before their movie existed.

That alone is probably the best summary of the film I have heard yet!

Like several others, I agree with this approximately 100%

The 'new' Trek exists both within, and outside original continuity; this new timeline was born out of the original, but the writers now basically have carte blanche to create new tales based around the original characters.
