What Abrams did with the Star Trek Franchise was use all young/beautiful actors to portray the characters, use modern movie special effects, and take away most of the science that was usually the hallmark of the series (note: I said USUALLY) and replaced it with a lot of fast-paced action sequences. This may make the reboots "Cool" in the public consciousness but for me, the reboot was totally mindless and boring. I'll wait until the second movie in the reboot is available on Movie2K.com. That's right, I wouldn't even pay to see it on streaming video. I can't wait to see the disaster the JJ Abrams makes of the upcoming Star Wars trilogy, a la Disney. I'm sure I'll get down-modded by any ST-Reboot fanz here and I don't care. I like the old school ST...ST-TOS and ST-NG. Now, get off my lawn!
