I agree that a reboot was probably a good thing. But they did a lot of things I did not approve of.
Blowing up Vulcan.
Crazy lens flare.
I don't see how these things helped anything. I'm glad it's a short list, but yeesh.
On the plus side, I think Scotty and his little alien assistant were absolutely perfect.
As regards to the original topic, I don't think it's really fair to talk about time travel. We have no idea if it is even possible, much less how it would work if it was. As regards to the lack of an observer ... well, keep in mind that, in the past, the observer you're talking about doesn't even exist yet. So that'd be like Schrodinger's cat being dead or alive (not both) because someone is going to open the box later. Maybe? Neat idea, anyway.
I'm thinking it's more like we're viewing Trek in another dimension -- not the Normal Universe or the Mirror Universe, but a Third DImension. That's right. The next film will be in 3D.
