There'd be a lot of overlap like that. Any fan could think of the top 20 things, and we tried to put as many of those things in the movie as possible.
Maybe the lists would be similar, but would what's in the movie be recognizable?

We have a McCoy who looks like Gary Mitchell...

An iStore for a bridge...

A Feinberger that looks like a Universal Translator...

And the ship...

Maybe Orci should have said "think of the top 20 things then picture them in an alternate universe."

People are going to have to get past things like this if they expect to enjoy the movie. I actually think they did pretty good with the casting. I think Karl Urban is going to make a great Bones, regardless of his resemblance to Mr. Kelley. Jeez, the man even got Bones down to the pinky ring Mr. Kelley always wore.
