Those of us who aren't particularly happy with the changes JJA hath wroght upon our beloved TOS don't have a choice but to accept it. It has been done. There's nothing we can do about it now. So I have accepted the alternate universe JJ-Trek as a parody of "my" Star Trek, which this no longer is. I'll keep watching it just because it is a fun new universe. But that's all it is. It is not true Star Trek to me.

Yes, fascinated (again?) by his testosterone-overload.
Speaking of it, Picard and Riker seem to go through a mid-life crisis in INS.

"Hi, I'm Will Riker here, I learned the hard way 2 times that only having libality insurance on a Starship can cost you BIG in rebuild/refits costs. If I had paid for full coverage through All Federation Insurance, I'd be lovin' some bimbo on a starbase right now instead of being forced into a marrige with a flakey Betazoid. All Federation Insurance, don't leave Erath without it."

You keep asking the same questions over and over.

And I keep repeating the same answers. Apparently.

No. I wish they had set the movie in the existing Star Trek universe and not created the alternate. But, again, that's personal preference. I wanted to see "my" Star Trek, not an alternate version of Star Trek.

I suppose I can consider TNG a utopians wet dream.

Well, Riker was no young buck by then - a flattering young ensign may have been just what he needed to get the joystick out and show his abilities with it again.

Yeah. Pretty much. Honestly, I liked GR's view of Earth's future as a totally utopian society. It may not be realistic, but this is fiction. Nothing wrong with dreaming big. Think about it. One world government. No war. No poverty. No hunger. Very little if any crime. Universal health care for the whole planet. No money hungry oil companies jacking up gas prices (if oil even exists in the 23rd/24th centuries). No money either. So no persuit of wealth to corrupt society. I think it would be wonderful. But that's just me.

Where does Abrams say that's all not present in the new film? Cause he shows people still like a drink (seen before in Trek), that some cadets are unruly? (seen before in Trek) - or something else?
