Why? Star Trek hasn't been very accomodating to it's fans.
Why promote something that doesn't appreciate you?

On the contrary Saquist I believe Paramount have been very accommodating. They have given Star Trek a fighting chance, for old and new fans to enjoy. Sure, there had to be sacrifices, but are they too much to live with?

Do you not yourself change your clothing when it wears out, replace those new shoes that are dull and scuffed, switch brands because the old brand is not in vogue any more?

Let's face it re-birthing Star Trek was the only option left to Paramount and I think they have succeeded in delivering the goods.

Trek is dead. May the new Trek live long and prosper!

Wow what an attitude. Where were the fans when Enterprise was declining? Or the last 4 movies poor box office sales? Its clear the hardcore 'fans' either didn't care any more or simply weren't enough to keep Trek moving forward.
It HAS to embrace something new, not be shackled by canonista's and basement dwelling trekkies.
This movie has to have MASS appeal in the same way Star Wars does, it HAS to have a good story in the Trek vein but also be appealing to as many people as possible.

I think it will succeed. For those canonista's they have the entire TOS on remastered Dvds, and the 9 movies more than enough for them to be happy. Life moves forward and Im going along for the ride with JJ here.

I agree. My sister's already said she wants to go see it with me, and she's not even a Trek fan (yet). She loved the trailer previous to this one, and was very intrigued. I think that'll be the case with a lot of people. I'll be trying to make this a family night out, for sure.

Intresting metaphor: wearout.
Because of mismanagement Trek didn't just wearout it was burned down.
