I've liked ALL of the characterizations in TREK over the last 40 years. I'm looking forward to this new movie, but I am not looking forward to Abrams' attempts to "reboot" it into a darker, faster-paced genre. There was nothing wrong with STAR TREK in it's original form, otherwise it would not have been so popular for all these years.
This one is so far removed from what I associate with STAR TREK, that to me it looks more like a STAR WARS-type story with the TREK label slapped-on to try and squeeze more blood out of the franchise.
If they really want to do STAR TREK right, they need to start writing scripts based on some of the great STAR TREK novels that have been published over the last 30 years, such as STRANGERS FROM THE SKY, or YESTERDAY'S SON / TIME FOR YESTERDAY, or ENTERPRISE, or SPOCK, or FEDERATION, or any one of the Shatnerverse novels or The Captain's Table novels. There's also the new group of Starfleet Corps of Engineers novels that would make great films.
And I have inside info from a friend who was involved with this new film that will make many fans of the primary shows VERY unhappy with this film's storyline. Unfortunately I can't go into detail.
