I don't know what others think but I am not claiming that JJ has destroyed Star Trek, I enjoyed the film as an action flick, but what disappointed me and what is still disappointing me is that the films are becoming just that, action flicks. Lots a explosions, lots of special effects, I'm sure I will enjoy that in the next film, but brains are optional now, there is no more deeper meaning, no social commentary, nothing to make you think. A feast for the senses but zero calories for the brain, that's why it just doesn't feel like a Star Trek film.
And this is how it will be from now on, the original stories may continue to exist but there will be nothing of substance added. This new Trek is a dimwitted hyperactive descendant of the Trek I knew and enjoyed. I'll likely watch the new film and probably enjoy it as an action film, but it won't really be Star Trek to me.
