I think I know now why. She penned a novel in 1988 titled Final Frontier, which seems to have served as an inspiration for the opening scene in the new Star Trek movie (XI).

Nice POV from someone who knows their stuff a bit.

Perhaps she'll write another Trek book- one set in the new universe.

This may be a case of simple brown nosing.

Could be...but, I was skeptical about the movie before I saw it. I've seen it 6 times, now, and think it's terrific. Maybe it's the same with her.

So you're saying she's lying?

Nice.

Orrrrrr..... you could simply take a highly-respected Trek veteran at her word.

I think she genuinely liked it. There are similarities between her prequel novels and the movie. Her portrayal of a rebellious young Jim Kirk for example. Maybe she felt her work was being acknowledged.
