That's just a screenwriter's way of slipping story information into dialogue without it seeming like they are doing that. Oldest trick in the book.

True. But TOS is being "re-imagined". And so far, it looks like whatever TOS absolutely contradicts makes no nevermind to JJ and his cohorts.

Key words being "so far" and "looks like"... not "after seeing the film" and "absolutely is."

I'm saying people are leaping to vast conclusions based on minimal, incomplete information... assuming because they don't know an explanation, that no explanation can exist.

I'm willing to see for myself... as evidence exists from the film's creators that explanations for many of these changes DO exist in the film, and by design. That's evidence I see many arguers here perfectly willing to ignore while they leap to conclusions on an out-of-context photograph and a narrow idea of what TREK should be.

I hope they start all over and we have to learn a whole new storyline! Every once in awhile it needs to be done... SUPERMAN, BATMAN, SPIDERMAN, James Bond, and so on needs a reboot and revision now and again, if anything else to keep the story interesting and preventing it from geting stale! And let's face it, TREK got OLD and STALE!

I'm looking forward to this NEW STAR TREK... And now my sons, and their kids will get to know STAR TREK and hopefully love it like I do.... And for TREK to survive you really need JAMES T. KIRK! Kirk is the embodiment of all that is GREAT about TREK... TNG was entertaining... DS9 had it's moments... VOY was, well YAWN... and ENT spent so much time on the TEMPORAL WAR that it got as bad as X-Files did towards the end when it became OBSESSED with ALIEN CONSPIRACY!
