Hmmm? Let's see... This is a new movie and I'm guessing it is a new story all on to itself.... Hence no one calling it STAR TREK XI but Trekkies, Trekkers or whatever other label a fan of the show wants to call themselves.... Actually we even have a few new names to call TREK fans and they are as follows:

Canonites
Reborn Trekkies
New Age Trekkies
Trekkies of the Latter Day Shatners
True Beleivers of the Great Bird of the Galaxy

And well I could go on, and on...

Let's face no matter what the storyline of this "new" movie is, none of us are going to be 100% happy with it... We are all going to b!tch and moan and whine... oh yeah, and shell out the price of admission at least one or two times in the process....

So in the immortal words of Mork from Ork... Nan-new Nan-new and Shuz-bot!

I think we call it Trek XI to differentiate it from TOS and all of STAR TREK in general

and to quote IMDB

"Also Known As:

Star Trek XI (USA) (working title)
Star Trek: Zero (USA) (working title)"

So there

The Spockies
The High Order Of The Warp Core

I don't know...maybe the end foretold in Futurama wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

For me it's the best idea, sticking mostly to canon, but giving it a good ol' dose of steak and beer or a wheat grass shake and Plomeek soup -- if you're a vegetarian or a Vulcan.

I know most Trek fanboys wanted J.J and the writers to stay within canon and I get it. But trying to make a new story that isn't weighed down with superfluous rhetoric, which was created by inferior writers over the years, is a tall order. And I know a few of you agree, unless you love every episode of every series.

So I guess my rant is to say, who cares what kind of 're - boot, vamp, hash or prequel... I just wish die-hards could let go of the old and embrace the new. Isn't that what Star Trek is all about, changing and growing. I'm just happy we're getting another movie to be honest. Aren't you?
Amen to this!! I totally agree with you. I am really looking forward to the movie and are really happy to even be able to do that!

Well i think we'll get a little of both in the film, canon and some new insights.
