The problem with this biased approach is that it ignores the timeline, the development of the characters already shown.

There were the '66 characters, then there were the '79 characters who evolved from their 1960s versions, then there were the '80s characters (Kirk's a father, etc.) and into the '90s.

Now we'll be seeing the '09 characters, depicting these personalities in their youth. They didn't act exactly the same in the '80s as they did in the '60s (which would have looked totally foolish), so why would they be TOS carbon copies in their youth a good decade before TOS happens?

Unless one prefers no character development at all across decades of existence? But the TREK films have already set up that these characters change over time, and this new film will be no exception to that... continuity.

Why do you always resort to childish internet child-language when trying to summarize how the Supreme Court have apparently given you the royal business in the rear?

You're seemingly creating a false conspiracy against older fans, or fans of TOS, or whatever. This film has always been sold by the creators as a modern look at the franchise. It's never been "Here's how the characters from '66 came together, in '66 style". It's "Here's how the characters came together, in a bigger, modern film. It's 21st century Trek, updated, extra crisp, with extra mayo. You do like extra mayo, Saint, do you not?"
