It has elements of the original, the refit and, heretics, the D in it. I see no problem in leaving anyone behind who has not accepted TNG yet because it looks oh-so-different from TOS.

Maybe in your eyes, Mouse, but not mine.

Yay! And so we shall bravely and honourably face the lynching crowd of naysayers together... Why do I feel like a Klingon all of a sudden?

Absolutely! In fact, the more the merrier! Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream...

I'm really happy to see that I'm not alone in this.

I've heard this explanation over and over again. I respect it, but state my position in spite of it.

The TOS Enterprise being in the past and Enterprise D being the future, does not explain and only lends a weak defence to the 60's psychadelic, go go look of TOS.

In my opinion, Abrams is doing the same thing Roddenberry did long ago, by envisioning the future the way they see it. Only to an extent in Abrams position however. He's adapting Roddenberry's universe and only inserting his own vision of what Abrams himself sees the future... in my opinion of course.

I could be very wrong on this, but I would theorize if Roddenberry's ghost lingered around somewhere, he'd approve of Abrams' approach to Star Trek. I say this by looking at his own words:

"I would hope there are bright young people, growing up all the time, who will bring to [Star Trek] levels and areas that were beyond me, and I don't feel jealous about that at all. [...] It'll go on, without any of us, and get better and better and better, because that's the... that really is the human condition. It's to improve and improve." - Gene Roddenberry, The Star Trek Saga: From One Generation to the Next, 1988.

His own words seems to violate everything Purists stand for.

Wise words, Miguel. The quesion should not be how different this movie is, but how good it is.
With all due respect for purists, but a view which limits Trek to TOS and ignores e.g. TNG only because the designs are unlike the 60s design, well such a narrow demand cannot and will not be satisfied by future Trek which will go boldy where no man has gone before instead of. Zombie-Trek ain't gonna happen, it would be self-contradictory.

Libido....personally I'm a T&A man myself!
