People who dont like the new JJ trek seem to be the whiners who simply dont like change. Not saying this is everyone but thats what I see amongst my friends. I for one love it! I saw the 09 trek and it drew me into Star Trek. Immediately after watching it I went and got The Next Generation and loved that and all the series after.
I loved Into Darkness and cant wait for more JJ trek to come out!
That's mainly what I hear from the "anti-JJ Trek" crowd. It's not "set in the main universe," so fans get their panties in a wad over it.
similar thing happened to my daughter, she is nine.
Her first exposure to Star Trek was 'Into Darkness'....did a theater night and we loved it !
We since then have nearly finished watching through Deep Space Nine on Netflix together
She wants to watch TNG next....because I showed her a Q and a Borg episode
^^^^This^^^ My 6 year old daughter and 9 year old son both loved both JJ Movies. I was about my 6 year olds age when I was watching TOS reruns on Saturday afternoons with my dad. They now will watch the Star Trek series on the Netflix when I fire them up. My son likes Enterprise, but eh, to each their own, LOL. Then again I like Voyager and people on the forums poo poo that one all the time. JJ re-invigorated a dated franchise for a new generation of kids and even adults who may not have liked the "touchy feely" Star Trek. And if it takes JJ altering some things or rehashing some orginal(but popular) material to keep Paramount's moneybags full so they keep Star Trek alive than all the better.
"There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people."-Commander William Adama
I will admit that I am not a fan of JJ Trek.
But Andrew Dice Clay,In "Ford Fairlane" was the worst movie ever.
I still owe the "Diceman" a punch in the face for stealing my money, and 110 minutes of my life in 1989.
However, I shouldn't judge JJ Trek too harshly, I loved TNG on TV, and the movies were meh.
Hypnotoad commands you agree with me!

I was born in 1992, I didn't grow up with ST (except for about 3 episodes of ENT) I only started watching after 09, bought myself the full collection all thanks to JJ. Into Darkness is still in my top 3 list of ST Films.
Delta Rising is the best ex... oh sod it, I just want my Jupiter and Typhoon
