Am I missing something? When did this movie claim to not
be a reboot? Thus far I liken this movie to other reboots like Batman Begins and Lord of the Rings (both movies which made even greater canon changes than Star Trek XI has done so far, especially Batman Begins,
Canonites keep making comments like "this movie doesn't have the balls to call itself a reboot." Really when did it say it wasn't a reboot.
If Abrams or some other person working on this film actually made such a claim, I will actually be a little more understanding to the canonistas. Honestly I will. For all I know this claim has been said somewhere and I haven't seen it.
