No. I have tried and tried and tried to make peace with this new Trek universe, and as hard as I tried, I couldn't do it... 50 years of continuity flushed down the crapper because they had an IP they weren't making enough money off. I can't and won't bring myself to say that this is Trek now. This is not the Trek that I grew up with... It is, as so many other things have been, a repacking of my childhood that just fails to live up to it's original. It lacks story, it lacks heart, and it's just a big Hollywood action movie that spent more money on special effects and actors than hiring a team of writers that could do justice to the legacy that Roddenberry left them. Abrams is a charlatan. He has to ride the coat tails of men greater than him, and destroy everything that he lays his hands on, and I find it EXTREMELY disturbing that the future of the two flagship IPs of Sci-Fi now now rest squarely within his sticky-fingered grasp.
